Rockies prospect Roberto Ramos definitely has The Force in fourth straight game with a home run

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Friday, May 4, 2018

May has been very kind to Roberto Ramos. The twenty-three year old first baseman homered in his first three games this month and heading into Friday’s clash with the San Jose Giants he was already halfway to his total from last year in 122 games. He, like, used the Force or something (look—I’m not the guy you want making Star Wars puns) to hit a home run in his fourth straight game. He’s now hitting .292/.400/.663 on the season.

Ramos is probably a relative unknown in the Rockies system. He was drafted in the 14th round of the 2014 draft out of College of the Canyons Junior College and played at Grand Junction for at least part of his first three professional seasons. Last year in Lancaster he hit a respectable .292/.351/.444 with 13 home runs and a 124:41 K/BB ratio. Prospects don’t typically rise out of nowhere, and Ramos is still a long way away from the majors at 23. However, if he continues to put up numbers he will deserve a closer look from scouts and prospect hounds alike.
