On Monday, San Francisco Giants rookie outfielder Heliot Ramos was named Pacific Coast League Player of the Week.

Ramos, who is currently on a rehab assignment with San Francisco’s AAA affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats, batted .483 with four home runs and 10 RBI from July 3rd through July 9th.

The 23-year-old is working his way back from a right oblique strain that has kept him sidelined since late April. According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Ramos is on track to return around July 18.

Ramos played in all seven games during a week that started with the series finale against the Reno Aces as well as the full series against the Salt Lake Bees, recording hits in each of the first six games while going 14-for-29 (.483) with eight runs scored, four doubles, one triple, four homers and 10 RBI.

Starting with the finale against Reno in which he went 2-for-3, Ramos recorded hits in six straight games (a new season high) which included five multi-hit efforts led by a 4-for-5 performance on July 7. Two of those hits left the yard, the sixth multi-homer game by a River Cat this season, and he also scored three runs while driving in four. It was his second consecutive four-RBI game, the 11th River Cat (since 2005) to achieve feat.

Even more, that contest was the middle of a three-game homer streak for Ramos, as he became the sixth River Cat this season to do so when he slugged all four of his home runs from July 6-8. Though he went hitless in the finale against the Bees, he ended that six-game series batting 12-for-26 (.462) with eight runs scored, three doubles, one triple, four homers and 10 RBI.

Just as impressively, Ramos logged a triple-slash line of .500/1.103/1.603 over the course those seven games, with nine of his 14 total hits going for extra bases. Thanks to his 10 RBI in his last seven games, Ramos has nearly matched his RBI total over the 17 games of the season when he drove in 12.

This current rehab stint has helped Ramos raise his season average from a season-low .262 following Sacramento’s contest on May 5 all the way to .330 (31-for-94), which is the highest it has been since his eighth game of the season.

Release from the Sacramento River Cats – July 10, 2023

Heliot Ramos, San Francisco’s 18th-ranked prospect, is looking to join a Giants team currently in the mix for a National League playoff spot, just 2.5 games back of the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West standings.

Over just 18 career appearances at the MLB level, the 23-year-old is batting .152 over 46 at-bats.
