Ramos played for the Las Lomas Potros travel ball club in Puerto Rico. He was committed to play baseball at Florida International University prior to signing his professional contract. Ramos was the Most Valuable Player of the 2016 Under Armour All-America Baseball Game, a showcase of high school juniors and seniors that was held at Wrigley Field on July 23, 2016. Ramos was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the first round of the 2017 MLB draft; he was selected 19th overall.[4][5][6][7]

Ramos began his career with the rookie-level Arizona League Giants, based at the team's minor league complex in Scottsdale, Arizona. He ranked among the league's batting leaders, including first with a .645 slugging percentage, 2nd with a .348 batting average, 8th with a .404 on-base percentage, 2nd with a 1.049 on base-plus-slugging percentage (OPS), and tied for 7th with 6 home runs. Following the season, Baseball America named Ramos a 2017 Rookie-Level Classification All-Star, becoming one of only three outfielders selected among players in four leagues: Arizona, Gulf Coast, Appalachian, and Pioneer. Among the Giants' 2017 draft class, Baseball America rated Ramos as the Best Power Hitter, Best Defensive Player, and Best Athlete, and as having the Best Pro Debut. Ramos participated in the Giants' Instructional League following the 2017 season. [8][9][10][11]
