Isotopes First Baseman Roberto Ramos has been added not only to the Pacific Coast League roster for this week's Triple-A All-Star Game, but also the Home Run Derby. An Accelerated A California League All-Star a year ago, Ramos won the Cal League Home Run Derby in 2018.
Ramos replaced Kevin Cron of Reno, who was recalled by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
A native of Hermosillo, Mexico, who was a 16th-round draft choice of the Rockies in 2014 out of College of the Canyons (Calif.), Ramos went into Sunday having hit .379 with 25 RBI and eight home runs since June 1, and hitting .308 with 18 home runs for the season.
