Focus Area
Fastball:Ramirez was running his fastball up to 96 mph.
Curve:Ramirez threw his curve in the mid-to-upper 70s and it has the makings of a big league pitch.
Changeup:His changeup was in the upper 70s-low 80s. It's a work in progress but has the chance to be usable.
Control:His command is fringy-average right now with his secondary stuff, but showed above-average command with his fastball, which is important for a young pitcher.
Poise:Ramirez has a laid back demeanor on the mound, but gets fiery at times when the situation calls for it.
Physical Description:Ramirez has a terrific, projectable pitchers body.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Ramirez has a plus fastball with excellent command of the pitch.
Weaknesses:His secondary stuff lags behind the fastball. He doesn't command his curve or changeup consistently.
Summary:Ramirez's projectable body and live arm, combined with excellent fastball command should enter him into early round consideration. With his secondary stuff behind the heater, he might be a half-step behind some of the other exciting high school arms in this draft class.
