Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 01/24/2002

  Brought to you by
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
  Pretty much every superlative that could be used to describe him has.. question is.. where will he start 2002?
 02 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Absolutely fluid delivery and control.. but he needs to develop his secondary pitches more
 03 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Adapted well in High Desert after a post-promotion slump but still needs a lot of plate discipline work
2  04 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  If he starts strong in AA following his good AFL campaign Billy should see AAA pretty quickly
1  05 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Needs to get a full healthy season under his belt to prove his worth
1  06 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Getting to work with Mike Caldwell next season should skyrocket Ben's worth
2  07 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  Needs to show he can rebound from a lost 2001 season
 08 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Will be the latest in a line of exciting Beloit shortstops
 09 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Adding power to his swing is a must as he starts getting to the high minors
1  10 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Pure ability and smarts overshadows ugly rookie season
4  11 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 36 L R
  Arguably the most potentially powerful bat in the system
 12 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  Hopefully will break past the Barker-Jacobsen rut our firstbasemen seem to get into
3  13 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Finally a clean bill of health for the 2002 season
4  14 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Big and powerfull guy who needs to keep taking walks
1  15 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  Could hit 35 home runs if he stays in High Desert all season
 16 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  The Brewers need a lefty pitcher to step up this season and Luis could be the guy
4  17 Randolph, Jaisen   A   CF 40 S R
  Could be a cheap and valuable utilityman in Milwaukee over the next few years
1  18 Parker, Matt   A   SP 41 R R
  Escaped from High Desert but narrowly missed Caldwell in Huntsville
1  19 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Make or break year for Kade in Huntsville.. he needs to get his swing shorter and his body healthy
2  21 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Will probably have to work out of the bullpen in Beloit
2  22 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  Maybe a major diamond in the rough waiting to break out
1  23 Sanchez, Alex   MLB   CF 43 L L
  Should graduate off of the Power 50 this season at some point
3  24 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  Took a big step back in 2001 but he is still young enough to bounce back
5  25 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  The enigma of the system
 26 Nielsen, Brian   A   MR 38 L L
  With a dearth of lefties scheduled for Beloit he could muscle his way in as a 12th pitcher there
2  27 Poe, Ryan   A   SP 42 R R
  Very much looking forward to his return sometime in June or July
1  28 Pena, Elvis   A   2B 45 S R
  Has the tools enough to be a major leaguer but needs to put things together at AAA first
 29 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  Might turn out to be Beloit's everyday catcher
1  30 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  His bat took off in 2001 but his ability to take a walk remained grounded.. could be switched back to 3rd base
1  31 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  Gets a chance to really prove himself as Beloit's everyday two-bagger this summer
1  32 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  With his relative age and ability he could be fasttracked to Huntsville by the end of the season
4  33 Carrow, Tommy   A   CF 38 R R
  The Tommy Carrow fanclub starts right here right now
 34 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 39 L R
  Elbow injury cut short his 2001 season but he should be healthy enough for Beloit by early summer
 35 Soriano, Carlos   A   RF 41 R R
  A ton of tools but a bit old to be a big prospect
 36 Cesar, Dionys   A   UT 43 L R
  One more useful middle infielder the Brewers have for depth at AAA
2  37 Gordon, Justin   A   MR 40 L L
  Learning control is a must at High Desert
 38 Maysonet, Roberto   A   SP 39 R R
  Has an uberlive arm but at times couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with his fastball
1  39 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Defensive specialist is earmarked for the secondbase job at Huntsville
3  40 Hammond, Derry   A   RF 40 R R
  Another guy that will really benefit from the launching pad that is High Desert
6  41 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 40 R R
  Shows big flashes of power in winter ball enough to put him back on the map
1  42 Penney, Mike   A   MR 42 R R
  Needs a big rebound from a very so-so 2001 campaign
1  43 Smart, Pete   A   SP 42 L L
  Lefty starter could well reach Indianapolis by the end of the season
 44 Moreira, Greg   A   SP 36 R R
  High-upside high school pitcher could do some damage in rookie ball this season
 45 Saenz, Chris   A   SP 38 R R
  Pitched himself into a spot with Beloit with a very good pro debut
 46 Cordero, Victor   A   MR 41 R R
  Brings the cheese but serves the longball
3  47 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  The Brewers are really beginning to pump out SS prospects and Chavez is a young and exciting one
1  48 Valera, Jose   A   MR 37 R R
  Absolutely dominated the Dominican league last summer and will get his chance in the states in 2002
new  49 Gittings, Chris   A   MR 37 R R
  Midround pick in 2001 who showed a knack for control and strikeouts
new  50 Melo, Manuel   A   CF 38 R R
  Speed demon who could work his way into prospectdom very soon
