The Twins signed Wilson Ramos as a non-drafted free agent on July 7, 2004. Through three stops in the Twins organization, Wilson has posted a .288/.344/.434 hitting line with 24 HR's and 146 RBI in 898 AB's. Besides provide run production at the plate, Ramos has been a standout defender behind the plate and has drawn comparisons to Ivan Rodriguez. He followed up a great 2008 season with a strong winter campaign hitting .323 with 7 doubles and 4 home runs in 48 games. Perhaps Ramos' biggest flaw is that his plate discipline has been pretty bad thus far in his career. He's struck out 178 times compared to only 68 walks (2.6 K/BB ratio). Ramos should continue to be moved along steadily throughout the system and could make it to the majors in late 2010 as a September callup. Ramos played 126 games last season which is pretty high for a catcher. Although he didn't catch all 126 games, he did DH a fair amount as well. He's a great hitter and should be in the lineup everyday possible.
