VIDEO: Top White Sox Prospect Hits Home Run Off Scoreboard in Double-A
As the Chicago White Sox battle for an MLB playoff spot, they've been fairly impressed with how some of their top prospects have been progressing. A total of 12 prospects were promoted to Double-A Birmingham just over a week ago, including infielder Bryan Ramos.
While the 20-year-old could still use more consistency, Ramos' power was on display Thursday night against the Montgomery Biscuits. During the top of the fifth inning, Ramos hit a home run that went right off the middle of the massive scoreboard.
Fortunately, MLB Pipeline uploaded a video of the homer to their Twitter page for White Sox fans to check out.
Ramos' home run played a key role in Birmingham's 7-5 victory over Montgomery in the 11-inning affair. The White Sox's prospect finished the game with a solid stat line, tallying his HR, a double, an RBI and two walks in six plate appearances.
Only time will tell how long it'll take for Ramos to get even more comfortable in Double-A. So far, he has two HRs, five RBIs, two walks and seven strikeouts with a .222/.263/.472 slash line in eight games with the Barons.
One thing is for sure, though. If Ramos can keep hitting HRs off of scoreboards around the minors, he'll become a White Sox fan favorite in no time.
