Labeled as a power-hitting third baseman by Jesse Sanchez of, Bryan Ramos received a $300,000 signing bonus from the White Sox on International Signing Day. The native Cuban skipped past the DSL and instead played the full 2019 season with the AZL White Sox.

As a 17-year-old, Ramos was 2.4 years younger than league average but certainly held his own. In 51 games for the AZL Sox spanning 188 at-bats, he slashed .277/.353/.415 with 10 doubles, two triples, four homers, 26 RBIs, three stolen bases, 19 walks (8.7%) and 44 strikeouts (20.2%). Despite his youth, Ramos’ walk and strikeout totals were quite respectable and showed some polish. Unfortunately, he lost a year’s development time due to the pandemic.

In 2021, Ramos picked up where he left off. With Kannapolis, facing competition more than two years older, Ramos slashed .244/.344/.415 with 23 doubles, six triples, 13 homers, 64 RBIs, 13 stolen bases, 51 walks (10.1%), 110 strikeouts (21.8%) and a 109 wRC+. Even though his season was 64 games longer than 2019, he seemed to actually get stronger as evidenced by a .286/.385/.576 line. Looking at his defensive numbers, Ramos’ range plays better at second base than it does at the hot corner, but his arm continues to be a better fit at third.

MLB Pipeline grades Ramos’ arm highest among his tools at 55; hitting and power are graded at 45, while running and hitting are graded at 40. Considering he’s been playing more than two years younger than his competition to date, it’s hard not to get excited about his results.

Expect Ramos to keep mashing, and to continue splitting time next year at both second and third for Winston-Salem.
