There are three NRI outfielders coming to camp and two of them are among the Giants most exciting young players. Heliot Ramos, 17 years old and just out of high school in Puerto Rico, was the team’s 1st-round draft pick in 2017 (#19 overall). He’s right-handed and listed as a centerfielder but most people think he’ll be a power hitter and wind up at a corner spot. FanGraphs lists him as the no. 3 prospect in the organization. Here’s FZ:
“He was probably among our top prospects as hurt by anyone by the lost season because he was on a path to potentially playing in the big leagues in 2020,” president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said during a Zoom call with reporters on Friday. “I just know he’s motivated and how highly we all think of him from an organizational standpoint. It’s going to be fun to see him out there.”
Ramos will be 22 in September.
Hunter Bishop was also a 1st-rounder, this time the #10 pick in 2019. The lefty hitter is from San Carlos and like Barry Bonds went to Serra HS and Arizona State. He’s a high-OBP guy. FanGraphs rates him the no. 4 prospect in the system. He’ll be 23 in June.
The third guy came over from Tampa Bay in a trade in 2019. The Giants gave up a young LHP named Jacob Lopez for Joe McCarthy. McCarthy made his debut with the team last year but unfortunately went 0-for-10. He’s a lefty hitter from Pennsylvania who played college ball at Virginia. He has the most experience of the three, playing over 400 games in the minors (1691 PA) and compiling a .261/.376/.406 slash line. He turns 27 next week.
