Prospect Spotlight

Drafted as a 17-year-old in the 30th round by Philadelphia in 2018, Ramey signed for $125K. Still just 18 and entering his second summer in the GCL, Ramey may prove to be well worth the late round roll of the dice. The lanky right hander showed plenty of promise throwing the first four innings of a combined no-hitter on June 26th.

A lanky 6-foot-3, Ramey has plenty of projection remaining and time to fill out. His delivery is methodical and can give hitters a good look, but there’s deception in a funky low three-quarters release point.¬† The fastball sits in the 89-to-92 mph range, but lacks the long running action you’d expect from his lower slot. Ramey’s feel for spin is a separator, showing a pair of sharp breaking balls that flash big league potential. His 72-to-75 mph curveball is sharp and tunnels well off the fastball, with late drop right before the plate that could make it a 50-grade pitch in time. His low-80s slider also has sharp, tight break that plays well off the heater. Ramey flashed a handful of changeups, but like many young arms, his third speed is behind the fastball/breaking stuff.¬†Ramey has the stuff to stick as a starter with projection across the board and a more developed changeup.
