Position: OF

Height/Weight: 6'0”/195 lbs

Bats/Throws: L/R

Age: 22

College: Florida State

Year: SR

 

Despite the fact he isn’t a physical specimen, Ramsey has above-average raw power to all fields due to a compact left-handed swing. He employs a patient approach at the plate that gives him the ability to hit for both average and power, and makes him a constant on-base threat.

In the outfield, Ramsey has above-average speed and range, and may be able to remain in center field. He has slightly above-average arm strength with good carry on his throws that should offer enough versatility to handle all three outfield positions.

Ramsey receives the highest grades for his leadership ability on the field, as he’s the first player in 33 years to be officially named the captain of the Seminoles baseball team. He has all the ingredients to succeed at the next level, and is advanced enough to reach the major leagues by mid-to-late 2014.

Analysis: A 22nd-round pick after his junior season at Florida State, has upped his stock considerably. Ramsey, a character guy, should fit in nicely eventually in the Cardinals' clubhouse and an aging outfield.
