I was hoping Roger, the minor league expert could help me out here. I found this online and a friend of mine told me during spring training she heard Wilson ramos interviewed and he said his brother was practicing at some twins academy at Venezuela.
I found this on Gordo's blog :
Note and Quotes from spring training
1. I had a great conversation with Twins C Wilson Ramos. The young Venezulan is battling Drew Butera for the back up catchers job, behind Joe Mauer. Ramos played at AA-New Britain last year and is generally consider to be one of the top three prospects in the Twins Organization. Ramos is a strapping young man, and possesses great hitting skills. Many say he has to shore up his catching skills to be a bonifide major leaguer. But durring our conversation about how his spring was coming along he told me is one of 5 in his family, all boys and that his 16 year old brother is the best baseball prospect of all, even better than Wilson himself. I hope the Twins have a bead on the younger Ramos and get a chance to sign him when he becomes eligible. To early to tell on who is ahead in the battle between Ramos and Butera, but I am sure it will sort out as the spring progresses.
So what is the deal, does anyone know his name, what his position is, how highly regarded he is or anything? I was just curios. Thanks.
