Ramos, who was born in Colombia and moved to the U.S. when he was 6, fits the mold of a glove-first international shortstop. In a class that's weak up the middle, Ramos is far and away the best defensive shortstop in the class. He has special hands and is a magician with his glove. He has first-step quickness and lateral range to both sides, and his physical attributes play up due to strong instincts and baseball intelligence. His arm is a 55 on the 20-80 scouting scale and plays up because of his quick transfer and release. He has a loose arm and throws accurately from many different angles. His swing lacks strength at a lean, lanky 5-foot-11, 158 pounds. He has bat speed and contact ability in his aggressive up-the-middle approach, though he projects as a below-average hitter who could improve if he gets stronger. The Florida International commit has plus speed that plays out of the box and on the bases. Ramos has drawn comparisons to Alcides Escobar for his body and skill set. Scouts do have questions about Ramos' maturity.
