Prospect Focus: 2014 1B Eric Ramirez

Eric Ramirez of Rio Mesa HS in Oxnard, Calif. had a spectacular season while playing first base for the Spartans.

Listed at 6'0" 200 pounds, the left handed hitting first baseman put on a show this past weekend at an MLB scouting event at JSerra High School.

Scouts were aware of his smooth, effortless swing which led him to a .359 batting average, but it was his glove work that opened eyes.

"His defense is outstanding and plays up," said one AL scout. "His bat plays already, but I wasn't aware how good he is defensively."

Below is a video of Ramirez taking batting practice at the event.
