Cardinals prospect OF James Ramsey was 3-for-6 with two doubles and two runs scored on Tuesday for Double-A Springfield.

Ramsey, the No. 23 overall pick in the 2012 draft, has opened the 2014 season on a tear, batting .476 through his first six games. Last season the 24-year-old spent time at three different levels and batted .265/.373/.440 with 16 doubles, 16 home runs and a 121/65 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 112 games. Ramsey might have a chance to reach the major leagues later this season, but he has both Oscar Taveras and Stephen Piscotty ahead of him on the organizational depth chart.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have a deal in place with 2012 first-round OF James Ramsey.

Ramsey is a college senior, so he was fully expected to sign. Financials of his deal aren't available, but the Cards should be able to lock him up for well under the recommended slot for the No. 23 overall pick of $1.775 million.

Cardinals selected Florida State OF James Ramsey with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

A 22nd-round pick in 2011, Ramsey elected to return to Florida State for his senior year of college. Billed as a "hard worker" and "leader," Ramsey may be knocked as a low-upside pick, but truly does boast above-average intangibles to go along with a plus glove and speed. He won't hit for power, but his well-rounded game could have him in the big leagues sooner rather than later.
