Season in Review: After batting .325/.351/.448 during his 2011 professional debut in the rookie-level Arizona League, Ramirez continued to rake last season with a .354/.403/.462 slash line and 26/24 K/BB in 67 games for Low-A Lake County.
Scouting Report: At 5’9”, Ramirez doesn’t involve much projection. He's a switch hitter with a simple swing and direct path to the ball, lots of hard contact, strong top hand and bat-to-ball ability. He has the potential for a legitimate plus hit tool, and drives the ball despite his undersized frame. He can be overaggressive at the plate, however, and projects for below-average power.
Ramirez is a natural second baseman. Although his arm is his weakest tool, it is sufficient for the position. He has smooth, clean actions, and his above-average speed lends to similar range. He has a solid glove and hands, but is a second-base-only prospect. His value will always be tied to his hit tool.
