Roberto Ramos is a Mexican born player. Roberto Ramos CRUSHED a home run last night in México. pic.twitter.com/EMoGTlLTcE— Colorado Rockies (@Rockies) March 10, 2019
At 6-5 and 220 pounds, Ramos' raw power is a sight to behold. Pair that with the high altitude of Mexico and Colorado, and you have a potentially special player on your hands.
Ramos split last season between High-A and Double-A, piling up a .269 average and 32 home runs with the Lancaster JetHawks and the Hartford Yard Goats.

Given the revolving door that has been the Rockies' first base position over the last few years, Ramos could be headed to the bigs sooner rather than later.
With prospects like Ramos coming down the pike, the Rockies seem destined to have a whole new generation of mashers to take aim at the deepest parts of Coors Field.
