  Power 50 Notes

Nice batch of minor leaguers here - surely a few will make their mark in baseball history. Use the Internet to learn about the history of baseball, from baseball drafts to baseball drills.
  Power 50
+/- Rank  Name  Level  Pos  Age 
 01 Neugebauer, Nick   A   SP 39 R R
  Will begin that long-awaited rehab assignment this week in Indianapolis
 02 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Is the first farmhand to reach 100 games played at one position this season
 03 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Just promoted, let's hope Dave continues to draw walks in Huntsville
 04 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 39 R R
  18 scoreless innings in a row for Ben, now let's see those walks drop a bit
 05 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  In a dogfight with Hendrickson for #1 pitching prospect after Nuke graduates from the list
 06 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  My gosh, how tempted must the Brewers be to promote him?
 07 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  By unofficial count, has only had about six 3-ball counts so far in 14 innings of work
 08 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  In all likelihood, Corey will be in Huntsville by midweek
1  09 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Hitting the ball hard in Huntsville, but still could stand to draw a few more walks
1  10 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Only drops a spot because of Hardy's advances
new  11 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Rounds out the Brewers' strongest set of top 11 prospects in a long time
1  12 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 38 L R
  Still playing the outfield, and numbers keep inching upwards
1  13 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 40 R R
  With Hardy quickly establishing himself as Milwaukee's future at SS, a move to 2B could be in the works
 15 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Having loads of problems locating offspeed stuff with his bat
 16 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  It'll be interesting to see where, and at what position, DJ lands at next spring
1  17 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 40 L L
  Has been cuffed around his past few starts, but Luis has made definite strides
4  18 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Back to the drawing board for JM and the Brewers next spring
 19 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  Francisco is continuing to hit and draw walks in Maryvale
3  20 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  Mechanics are all out of whack thus far, so a trip to Arizona might not be a bad thing
 21 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  Looks to stick in the outfield now with Hart's impending promotion to Huntsville
1  22 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Ozzie's 11 sacrifice hits leads the organization
1  23 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  If the Brewers ever figure out how to give people consistent playing time, I'll be amazed
4  24 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  Possibly couldn't be in a worse organization to be in if he is limited to first base
 25 Stewart, Paul   A   MR 41 R R
  Will miss his next start with a finger blister, but nothing serious
2  26 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 41 R R
  Drawing a futile number of walks - not even a .300 batting average could make up for it
1  27 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  This should be the low-water mark for Kade, as he is playing full-time again
1  28 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  As the end of the season draws closer and closer, it's looking more like no Jose in 2002
1  29 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  There is so much potential here, it's hard to see why there aren't better results
 30 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Smacking the ball around well recently, though I'll hold off any optimism for the time being
2  31 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Everything has officially gone south for Jon... he needs to reexamine what got him drafted
1  32 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  Less runs need to score for the low number of guys Khalid is letting get on base
2  33 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  There were thoughts when he was drafted that Gerry might be a good closer prospect, and it may be time to revisit that
2  34 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  With his arm strength and decent bat, you almost want to try him out at third base
3  35 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  Cal and Parra will be one heck of a righty-lefty combo in Beloit next season
1  36 Mendez, Mario   A   RF 38 S R
  Mario has been in a horrible slump since about week 3 of the short season
3  37 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  Meanwhile, Froilan has been in a horrible slump since May
2  38 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 40 L R
  Brewers may play it safe and allow Judd to finish out the season in rookie ball
2  39 Walker, Edwin   A   SP 36 R L
  Finally back in action for the AZL Brewers
4  40 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  Has been just dominating as the Stars' closer for about a month now
4  41 Ramirez, Manny   A   1B 37 R R
  I have a bad feeling that Manny is going to be in Beloit next season
7  42 Osting, Jimmy   A   SP 42 R L
  Finally gets called up, and the Brewers promptly forget he's available to pitch
3  43 Maysonet, Roberto   A   SP 40 R R
  Has one of the most live arms in the system, but can't locate a pitch to save his life
3  44 Randolph, Jaisen   A   CF 41 S R
  Getting restarted back in High Desert, and he's now behind Krynzel in the CF pecking order
3  45 Miller, Ryan   A   MR 42 R R
  The Brewers refuse to move him back to the rotation, which is strange for a draft pick as high as Ryan
 46 Melo, Manuel   A   CF 38 R R
  Probably the best base-runner in the system, but Manny still needs to figure out how to get on base consistently
4  47 Parker, Matt   A   SP 41 R R
  Switch to the bullpen is now pretty permanent, and he got demoted after pitching very well lately, all of which is disgusting
1  48 McCormack, Taylor   A   3B 37 L L
  Would like to see Taylor play a bit more third base than he has been doing
1  49 Mendoza, Gabriel   A   MR 38 L L
  Kind of surprising Mendoza hasn't been given a chance to start yet in Arizona
new  50 Bibbs, Kennard   A   RF 39 L L
  Batting average is back up, and KB is easily winning the award for most pesky player in the system

Players removed this week: Brandon Gemoll... Ryan Poe...
