Dodgers News: Two Prospects Take Home Final Weekly Honors at AFL

The Dodgers prospects showed out once again as the final week of the Arizona Fall League comes to a close. In recognition of their efforts, pitcher Emmet Sheehan and outfielder Jose Ramos were rewarded with the hitter and pitcher of the week honors for their respective positions (via MLB).

Sheehan checks in as the Dodgers No. 22 prospect after appearing in 20 games in his second season in the minor leagues. Sheehan finishes with a 7-2 record and a 2.91 ERA.

Sheehan averages a fastball of 95-97 MPH but has thrown as hard as 99 MPH. Sheehan’s abilities give him a shot of being a starter for the Dodgers, but with the development of his breaking ball still coming into place, it is speculated that the Dodgers would keep him in a bullpen role.

In his third season in the minors, the Dodgers No. 8 prospect Ramos had his best season since being a part of the Dodgers farm system. On the season Ramos launched 25 home runs with 97 RBIs on a .249 batting average.

In his previous two seasons, Ramos totaled 13 home runs and 86 RBIs combined. Ramos, who is now 21 years old, has gained 50 pounds and two inches since signing with the Dodgers minor league teams and has been compared to Dodgers prospect Andy Pages for his strides in his game.

What Ramos lacks in speed, he clearly makes up for his power. Ramos makes plays in the outfield recording 20 assists in his first 112 starts.

  1. Kinda the wrong time to be touting Ramos since we just left him off the 40 man roster.
