Heliot Ramos started Saturday night’s Sacramento River Cats game, but was pulled in the top of the 4th inning. An hour later, his agent broke the news. Heliot Ramos was headed to the Major Leagues.
It took only two games into the Major League season, and less than five games into the Triple-A season, for Ramos to get the call. Ramos is the #5 ranked overall prospect in the Giants system by GiantFutures before the season, and other rankers had him anywhere between #3 and #6.
Ramos started his Triple-A season on Tuesday, hitting a home run in his first at-bat. Across 3 and a fraction games played, Ramos was batting 3-for-13 (.231) with a home run and double, with four walks against four strikeouts. In 2021, Ramos split his time between Double-A Richmond (62 games, .237/.323/.432 batting line) and Sacramento (54 games, .272/.323/.399).
No corresponding roster move was available. Ramos is already on the 40-man roster, so the team would just be needing to make a move on the 28-man active roster.
