BP Chats

2019-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Craig! Have their been any reports/looks on Heliot Ramos on the site that I have missed? He seems to have turned a corner from his struggles last year (I know he missed some time with injury this year). I'm a Giants fan, but also wondering if I should make a push to trade for him in my dynasty league
(jwdalton from SFG Doom and Gloom)
We talked Heliot twice recently! Once in our Cal League So Far, where Wilson called him positively electric when he saw
him in April.

Then again right after the California League ASG, in a Notes piece. .

In short: we still like him a lot. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-06-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Heliot Ramos a god or a demi-god?
(roarke from Inside a box with Schrodinger's Cat)
Heliot Ramos is a demi-god. Helios Ramos is a god. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-06-07 12:00:00 (link to chat)Could you please rank these prospects according to their fantasy upside: Dylan Carlson, D'Shawn Knowles, Antonio Cabello, George Valera, Jesus Sanchez, and Heliot Ramos? I'm in a points league.
(cracker73 from Florida)
Valera, Carlson, Ramos, Sanchez, Cabello, Knowles I guess. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Heliot Ramos is crushing it. Breakout or Cal League?
(Fernando from New Castle)
The framing of the question highlights the issues we have in talking about Ramos. I'm more interested in his improved plate discipline than I am his .351 ISO, but he's a giant shrug emoji for the moment. I'll tell you this: I'd be sniffing around Ramos in dynasty leagues to see if his price tag remains as low as it was six months ago. (J.P. Breen)
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where does Heliot Ramos rank opening day next year?
(sykklone from IA)
If he hits 20-25 homers with a batting average that hovers around .300, he'll probably be a top-50 dynasty prospect -- especially if he puts up a double-digit walk rate. Dynasty owners love guys like Ramos if they can take a walk. (J.P. Breen)
2019-05-24 15:00:00 (link to chat)The Giants offense is a pathetic mess. Yesterday, Mac Williamson had a platinum (is that even a thing?) sombrero. Was it just a bad day or is he just not good? It’s the latter, isn’t it? Also, do the Giants have an Austin Riley in their farm system? Can you lie to me and tell me Heliot Ramos is going to be better than a very Giants-esque utility player?
(Pablo Forever from Folsom, CA)
Yeah, Mac Williamson will probably never have the contact skills to make the power relevant. I do think Heliot Ramos will be something, someday. Bart is good and close, even with the injury. Marco Luciano and Alexander Canario are going to be fun to watch but are many years away. It's not great, but at least I trust Zaidi with some premium picks in the draft? (Jon Hegglund)
2019-05-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Heliot Ramos start - real, Cal League-aided mirage, or something in between?
(Paul from Dallas)
Wilson Ten Packed him in April. We're optimistic. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-05-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm going to have to drop 1 or 2 of these prospects in my dynasty league, so could you rank them by upside? Jesus Sanchez, Drew Waters, O'Neil Cruz, Heliot Ramos, George Valera, Tirso Ornelas, Antonio Cabello. Thanks
(cracker73 from Florida)
some of the upside factor depends on what your league has as categories. If it's a points league for examples steals don't matter as much and it changes the calculus because they're so hard to come by otherwise. I'd go: Valera, Ramos, Cruz, Waters, Cabello, Ornelas, Sanchez today but I'd probably give you a different answer next week. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-04-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know that I'm not supposed to scout the stat line, but Heliot Ramos has 4 home runs, a bunch of walks, and not very many strikeouts. What are your thoughts on him at this point? Is he going to shoot up prospect lists this season?
(Chris from DC)
Here's the thing about scouting the statline: it's a starting point. Ramos has the pedigree and is someone I've liked prior. I'm going to wait to get some actual reports on what he's looking like and how it differs from last year, but I think it's fine to be cautiously optimistic. If the improvements are legit, I wouldn't be afraid to get aggressive with him. (Craig Goldstein)
2018-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)So, judging from today’s Giants prospect report, the consensus at Baseball Prospectus is that Heliot Ramos is probably not a future superstar, right? What is his upside now considered to be?
(cracker73 from Florida)
Plus regular, occasional all-star. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Heliot Ramos? Had a good Fall League, but seems to be struggling mightily in A Ball.
(Jake from State Farm)
David Lee saw him this year and loved the tools while noting "Hes noticeably raw at the plate by being susceptible to sequencing, and hes ultra-aggressive. Hes going to have his three-strikeout nights in the South Atlantic League this year." A-ball was going to be an aggressive assignment for him, and while you'd like to see more performance, it hasn't been a disaster, and I don't think the underlying projection has changed yet. He was always a bit rawer and riskier than guys like Adell and Lewis coming out of that draft. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)Heading into this season Heliot Ramos was compared to Jo Adell by some. So far this season Adell looks like the better prospect. Is Ramos still highly thought of by scouts?
(cracker73 from Heliot Ramos)
I'll link to this very ten pack for the second time in this chat, but I think David Lee did a great job of summing Ramos up at this point:

I don't think the comparisons to Adell were really in earnest, but they were the most tools-laden hitters out of the draft at that point, so I get why they were made. Ramos is definitely still well-liked, but he was always considered fairly raw. (Craig Goldstein)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Who else was considered for #69?
(Eric from Vegas)
I think the other candidates in that range would have been Heliot Ramos, Kilome, Alcantara, Seth Romero, maybe Seuly Matias (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us 3 guys on the back half of the list you could see moving into the top 25 for next year's list?
(Otilio G. from Atlanta)
Other than Robert, I'll throw in Heliot Ramos, Taylor Trammell, and the Jesus Lizard. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do prospects with boring names like Ian Anderson get overlooked? What do you expect of Ian Anderson?
(Jacob from DC)
I haven't been able to say Heliot Ramos without hearing the "Stelio Kantos" song from American Dad in my head for months. You might be onto something. I like Ian Anderson, but have him a bit behind the other Braves arms because he's been used lightly and needs a bit more refinement than the names ahead of him. Could be a bit of a cold weather prep arm bias. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-01-23 23:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite breakout prospect candidates this year?
(Chris from Dallas)
He already sort of started to, but in terms of ceiling dudes Heliot Ramos is going to fly up ranks this year. Brent Rooker from last summer's draft, too.

Far as some lower ceiling dudes I like on this planet, he's basically fully cooked and should compete for a gig as soon as spring training, and I think Brian Anderson's going to gain some fans this year - unheralded rise through the ranks, but kid can hit and as some pop. Sort of like folks started getting wise to Matt Chapman during the years last year, think Anderson's got a shot to be that guy in 2018. Jeimer Candelario will be in the thick of that race, too. Ronald Guzman's a guy I didn't get a very good eval on back in the day, but I've come around on him as a nice little undervalued asset that can make his managers some money as soon as this year. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-11-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Heliot Ramos is a top 100 prospect?
(Eric Rodriguez from Puerto Rico)
Yep. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-10-17 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is it me, or does it feel like a foregone conclusion that the Giants will find a way to trade for Giancarlo Stanton? Any idea what package would get it done, maybe something like Chris Shaw, Tyler Beede, Heliot Ramos, Austin Slater, and Steven Okert?
(matzabal from CO)
Haha, I'm not so sure it's foregone, but they're an easy spot to visualize him landing. I think a lot of previously rebuilding teams are probably in the running for him, since slotting him in the OF is a good way to suddenly create a good offense. Odds on, I'd say the Giants make a strong, if not the strongest run.

I don't think it's going to be a bunch of prospects for him kind of deal though. My guess is that some team is going to have to take on salary and give up probably their top prospect, especially since Jeter is going to want his GM to make an initial statement. I think I'd need Arroyo in there as well as Beede and Shaw. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-09-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Keston Hiura or Heliot Ramos?
(JR from New Hampshire)
My two personal favorite (not most highly-ranked) guys from the last draft class. Hiura is the better prospect for now, but the Ramos reports have been eye-catching. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
