At 5-foot-11 and 210 pounds, Ramirez turns off scouts with his soft body. But he has hit with authority everywhere he's played, and his defense gets solid reviews. Ramirez was a 34th-round draft pick by the Angels last year after hitting .386/.471/.660 with a wood bat for Chandler-Gilbert (Ariz.) CC. He turned them down and spent the summer in the Northwoods League, leading the league with 10 home runs and earning league MVP honors. While coach Pat Murphy used two catchers last season, Ramirez came in and made a seamless transition, quickly learning the new staff and starting every game this season. He calls his own games and worked with two of the best college pitchers in the country this year. While he's a good receiver, his arm is average at best. The wear and tear of catching didn't slow him down at the plate, as Ramirez hit .344/.449/.693 with 17 home runs during the regular season. He also has the swagger and leadership you look for in a catcher, getting respect from opposing coaches who say he's the kind of player you hate on another team but would love to have on your own team.
