Ramos signed with Chicago out of Cuba during the 2018-19 international signing period. A power-hitting third baseman, he’s played his way to Double-A by age 20. The right-handed hitter spent most of the year with High-A Winston-Salem, posting a .275/.350/.471 line with 19 home runs and a strong 16.4% strikeout rate. Baseball America considers him the #3 prospect in a generally weak Chicago farm system.
Rodriguez is a native of the Dominican Republic. Also a member of the 2018-19 international class, he played most of the season as a 21-year-old with Double-A Birmingham. In 484 plate appearances, the right-handed hitter put up a .280/.340/.430 line with 11 home runs and a meager 13.6% strikeout rate. He also swiped 40 bases and played mostly middle infield. BA considers him the #5 prospect in the Sox’s system, suggesting he’s likely to be a utility infielder.
