Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 Slight knee bend, mild load, some noise; mild leverage, some stiffness, above-average bat speed, average bat control; consistent hard contact to opposite field, question how tools play vs. MLB-caliber stuff; max effort swing causes lack of balance, pulls head, projects fringe-average hit utility
Power 30 Doubles more than homers, body hasn’t translated to HR power, mild leverage limits loft, swing geared to line-drive contact over power, projects to well below-average game power
Baserunning/Speed 50 Clocked 4:15-4:20, deceptive quickness, history of leg injuries, physicality knocks grade down to average
Glove 50 Surprising agility given frame, makes the routine plays, average glove skills; fringe-average range, acceptable in both corners; projects to average defensive utility in a corner
Arm 40 Lacks arm strength for RF, better fit in left, throws have below-average carry and velocity

Ramirez was inconsistent in these viewings, flashing plus hit skills in some at-bats, but looking lost and producing weak choppers in others. His ability to create hard line drive contact is his strength, but the lack of power in his profile leaves his offensive projection on the fringy side, and I’m not confident he will consistently barrel up pitches against better arsenals because of the lack of athleticism in his stroke. It’s difficult to envision him as anything more than a potential reserve, and a lack of defensive versatility in the outfield gives him a very small window for logging consistent time on a big-league roster.
