Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 09/18/2002

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
  Got roughed up in his first Indy rehab appearance
2  02 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Struck out 7 batters in a row last time out, with no walks all game, which we'd like to see more of
 03 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Off to a slow start in Huntsville and there's no doubt we'll see him there again next season
2  04 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Should put up some impressive stats next season with the Mavs
1  05 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  Continued mashing after his promotion to Beloit, though he had his first career injury last night
1  06 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Might have a shot at reaches Beloit by season's end himself
2  07 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Despite getting passed by Hendrickson and Parra, still has the most pure talent of any pitcher in the minors
 08 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Adjusting to Southern League pitching pretty well early on, but the defense at third still needs some fine-tuning
 09 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  JJ's advanced learning curve may finally be beginning to wear him out a little bit
 10 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Hopefully this ERA guru can follow Hendrickson's successes in High Desert next season
 11 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Not too shabby as far as a guy's first two AA starts are concerned
 12 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Is pretty much going to have to be in High Desert next season, catching or not
 13 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Things are still progressively getting worse for Billy both at the plate and in the field
 15 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Won't be the fast mover Hardy was this season, Josh seems to be much more of a project
 16 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  Slated to be Huntsville's starting leftfielder next season
 17 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  A couple fantastic starts, a couple horrible starts, another year in Huntsville
3  18 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  Has earned a promotion, but the Stars need him for their playoff run
1  19 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  This will be mentioned often, but the Brewers need to consider moving JM into the bullpen
2  20 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Walking like a madman, and I'll take a slight drop in batting average for more patience shown at the plate
2  21 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  Still hasn't quite adjusted to the Pioneer League pitching
2  22 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  Like Murray, Eric will be a big project instead of a fast mover early on
2  23 Stewart, Paul   A   MR 41 R R
  Finger blister is healed and he should be back dealing for the Stars
3  24 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  It will be interesting to see where Kade winds up next season
2  25 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Batting average is in the tank, but at least he's playing everyday again
 26 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 40 R R
  If Elie ever learned how to take a walk, he'd be dangerous
3  27 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  Losing batting average and playing time
2  28 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Has been red-hot for a couple of weeks now
1  29 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  Here's to hoping we see Jose sometime in 2003
4  30 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  Next season will be a real test of his pitching abilities when he goes to AAA
1  31 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  Needs to allow fewer base hits, but otherwise, he's doing everything right
3  32 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  Cal has been on a slide a little bit, but he's so young, I'm not worried
4  33 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  Well, maybe that move to the rotation wasn't such a good idea
3  34 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  On the bright side, Jon still has more strikeouts than walks
2  35 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  I'm still surprised we ever saw Gerry in Beloit this season
4  36 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  Surprise call-up to the bigs is well deserved after last month's performance
4  37 Ramirez, Manny   A   1B 37 R R
  Should remain in High Desert next season, and should garner some more respect
2  38 Mendez, Mario   A   RF 38 S R
  Remember when he was hitting .455?
2  39 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  OBP is perilously close to being under .300
2  40 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 39 L R
  Is in quite the extended rehab assignment
2  41 Walker, Edwin   A   SP 36 R L
  Hopefully, Ed has shown enough in rookie ball that Ogden will be forthcoming next season
 42 Osting, Jimmy   A   SP 42 R L
  Realized he was hurt all the sudden when he got to Milwaukee
3  43 Melo, Manuel   A   CF 38 R R
  As a potential leadoff hitter, Manuel needs to be drawing more walks and making better contact
new  45 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  Take out his first two starts and his ERA is 2.47
4  46 Bibbs, Kennard   A   RF 39 L L
  Can be a very pesky hitter, but Beloit's pitching environment will test his bat
new  47 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  The Brewers are incredibly high on this undrafted free agent, and the stats give merit to that
new  48 Stavros, Tony   A   CL 39 R R
  This undrafted free agent makes his Power 50 debut after allowing no earned runs in July
 49 Mendoza, Gabriel   A   MR 37 L L
  Could jump right to Beloit next season
new  50 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  2002's Ralph Santana isn't quite as quick, but has a more powerful batting stroke
