Get To Know A Prospect: Milton Ramos

Milton Ramos was drafted in the 2014 draft in the third round. The 19 year-old short stop was the Mets second pick (thanks to Curtis Granderson). In limited AB’s this year due to being drafter this year, he had 166 AB with a .241 BA, .299 OBP, .355 SLG. In his 40 hits he had 9 doubles, 5 triples and no homers. He can also play second base, last year he split time about 60/40 between two favoring shortstop.

The short story from scouts is his defense is great! His hitting is quite the opposite.

The Mets future at shortstop and second base doesn’t rest on Milton Ramos, like it did back when they drafted Reese Havens. The Mets have Ahmed Rosario for short, and Dilson Herrera for second, (but prospects break your heart, shout have traded for Tulo, extend Murphy, yadda yadda yadda).

Milton Ramos is deep down the prospects charts, which is fine. He has a lot of time to work on his craft and hopefully with good coaching he can develop a respectable bat to go with his glove. Hitting prospects at short are always valuable.
