SF Giants Prospects Weekly Rundown: Triple-A
Heliot Ramos: 4 G, 18 AB, .278 AVG, .833 OPS, 1 3B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 3 K, 1 SB
Bryce Johnson: 4 G, 11 AB, .364 AVG, 1.053 OPS, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 SB
Jaylin Davis: 4 G, 13 AB, .000 AVG, .063 OPS, 0 HR, 0 RBI, 1 BB, 7 K
It took him 21 games but top prospect Heliot Ramos has finally hit his first home run in Triple-A. After starting off poorly in the level, Heliot has found his footing, batting .267 with a .730 OPS while being almost six years younger than the average competition. Speaking of him being younger than the competition, GPT caught onto this earlier in the year, noting nearly 99% of Ramos’ plate appearance in his career came against pitchers that are older than him. Out of nearly 1500 plate appearances in his professional career, only 17 have been against pitchers that are younger than him. Incredible.
After struggling mightily over the months of June and July where he only hit .235 with a .690 OPS across 46 games, Bryce Johnson has faired much better in August as he’s hitting .357 with a 1.097 OPS and five extra-base hits across 10 games. The speedy outfielder has managed to get his batting average back on track with a .281 clip and has a solid .802 OPS. With good depth in the outfield at the moment, however, Johnson’s path to the big leagues is most likely as a defense-first option.
In his past five games, Jaylin Davis has been held hitless in 21 plate appearances with seven strikeouts. It could be an indication that there is a small chance that Davis could make an impact in the big leagues as the Giants are locked in a tight NL West race with the Dodgers. However, he’s seeing time in the dirt in practice and there is a possibility that he could see time at first base as the season winds down.
