Farm Futures: This Week's Risers
Farm Futures: This Week's Risers

This article is part of our Farm Futures series.

I have been chipping away at updating the top 400, and wanted to highlight some players in the 85-150 range who have climbed the rankings due to demonstrating potential skills growth early in the year. All of these players should be rostered in serious dynasty leagues, so this may not be very actionable for some of you, but I will be continuing to update the top 400 over the rest of the week and into next week, so keep an eye on the arrows for big risers who may still be out there in RDI-sized dynasty leagues.

Heliot Ramos, OF, Giants

The selling point when the Giants selected Ramos with the No. 17 pick in the 2017 draft was that he had mammoth raw power and had a shot to stick in center field. He has less of a chance to stick in center field now, although that's his current position, but the power that was his calling card as an amateur has really blossomed this year in the California League. Ramos showed he could hit for power as a 17-year-old in the AZL after he was drafted, but he is doing things this year to better stabilize that power that he did not do in past seasons.
