4/18/12: Ramsey was a stalwart for three years at Florida State, topping the Seminoles in batting (.364), RBIs (67) and slugging (.580) as a junior in 2011, while sharing the club lead in homers (10). All that did was earn the unheralded outfielder a chance to become a 22nd-round afterthought of the Minnesota Twins in last year’s draft. One summer in the Cape Cod League, though, did wonders to change the perception of Ramsey and open the eyes of scouts to the notion that he may be a legitimate major-league prospect, after all, and he entered the 2012 season with a new-found appreciation of his game from the scouting community. Not only was he a favorite to be the first college senior drafted, but he was a candidate to be taken as early as the first round. Ramsey turned the Cape on its ear last summer, playing for Yarmouth-Dennis. He hit a robust .314 with six homers, while leading the league with a .571 slugging percentage. If nothing else, he proved to scouts that he was badly undervalued in the 2011 draft, that given a chance to hit with wood on a big stage against some of the nation’s elite college talent he could hold more than hold his own, and even thrive—no matter if his style and approach may be a little unorthodox. At 6 feet and 190 pounds, Ramsey isn’t built like your typical power hitter, and yet he displayed significant pop in his compact lefthanded swing and drove balls hard to all fields. In addition to his half-dozen regular-season homers, he went deep in the Cape all-star game with a long blast over the right-field wall at Boston’s Fenway Park before the watchful eyes of more than 100 once-doubting scouts, and may have hit the longest home run of the summer with a deep blast into the trees beyond the right-field wall at Yarmouth-Dennis. He rarely got cheated at the plate all summer, and barreled up more than his share of balls. Not only did the undersized Ramsey hit with raw power that scouts didn’t previously believe he had, but all the other components of his underappreciated game suddenly came into focus. He made a strong impression with his speed, strength, athleticism and ability to hold down center field in a pinch, to say nothing of winning over every coach in the league with his confident approach and infectious, scrappy energy. Ramsey, whose father Craig was captain of the 1980 Florida State team that reached the College World Series, has done nothing this spring but build on his new-found reputation. Through mid-April, he led the Seminoles with nine home runs (three times the number of his closest pursuer), and was second on the team in batting (.380) and RBIs (33). He also had drawn 30 walks vs. 23 strikeouts, and was the biggest reason why Florida State had ascended to No. 1 in the national ranking. Though his hitting style and throwing action are hardly convention, and are somewhat akin to the somewhat unorthodox style of Philadelphia Phillies all-star Hunter Pence, scouts no longer have become consumed by his approach when assessing Ramsey’s potential long-term value, but rather have become preoccupied with his performance.
