  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
  Arm seems healthy, but a back problem has him on the shelf for a start or two
 02 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Still trucking along with the Stars and will wind up being one of the Southern League's top prospects
1  03 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Having better luck than Prince so far after their tandem promotions
1  04 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  Proving that indeed, he is human after all
2  05 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  After a rough start, Super Dave is getting untracked in Huntsville
 06 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Allowing a bunch of hits lately, largely because he is concentrating on certain things each game
 07 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Arm is back to full velocity, but isn't having quite the success he had when he wasn't throwing at all
 08 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  It'll take a while before Corey starts to hit in AA like he did in A+
 09 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Still can't get the bat going in Huntsville though his glovework is still topnotch
 10 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Had some arm stiffness last week, but he'll be ok
 11 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Except for some minor control problems, Diggins has been on fire since being acquired
 12 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Jason is drawing more walks than he has in the past
2  13 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Seems to be getting more comfortable as he goes along
1  14 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Soon will be passed by Hardy, Bill's future almost certainly lies at second base
2  16 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  Jeff has made one of the larger jumps among the ranks of Brewers prospects this season
1  17 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  The Brewers are very high on Daryl's offensive capabilities despite his batting average struggles
1  18 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Luis needs to work on consistency next season in his return to Huntsville
 19 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  At some point next season, both JM and Mieses will both be pitching at the same time... can you imagine?
 20 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  I'll take the batting average drop off for the major gain in plate discipline any day of the week from a guy who just turned 19
 21 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  A big question going into next season is where to put Francisco, back in Ogden, or Beloit
1  22 Stewart, Paul   A   MR 41 R R
  Hasn't been dominating quite like he did early and often in June and July
1  23 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  Made his most promising outing to date last week, and now Eric needs to build on that
 24 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  We're still waiting to see Kade's powerful stroke come to fruition with the Mavericks
1  25 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 40 R R
  Hitting generally better after a midseason slump
4  26 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  Should be part of a nice little prospect rotation in Indianapolis next season
1  27 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Will repeat Huntsville in '03 for sure
4  28 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  If Calvin finishes with anything under a 4.00 ERA, this season will be a major success
 29 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  If Jose ever amounts to anything in the bigs, at least the Brewers will have some arbitration leverage because of this season
5  30 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Back down to Huntsville after largely struggling in AAA
4  31 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  Despite his lack of bat work in AA, still has enough time to develop into a Jim Rushford type
1  32 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  A lot of hits given up, but Khalid has the framework to become a very successful pitcher
3  33 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  Oddly enough, Matt will probably get his first taste of AAA ball next season after skipping right past it this season
1  34 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  Will most likely finish off the season in the rotation, but his future there isn't nearly as bright as it has been
1  35 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Jon might well see some extended spring training time before making his 2003 debut
1  36 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  I still like him a lot as a closer prospect, but the whole starting thing isn't working too well
 37 Ramirez, Manny   A   1B 37 R R
  The big thing Manny needs to work on this offseason is his defense
 38 Mendez, Mario   A   RF 38 S R
  I am still holding out hope that Mario's first couple weeks in Ogden weren't a fluke
 39 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  As long as he's still a catcher, Froilan has value to the Brewers
3  40 Melo, Manuel   A   CF 38 R R
  Needs to take a long look at how Kennard Bibbs operates at the plate
1  41 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 39 L R
  Should be ready to rejoin Beloit for the last few weeks of the season
3  42 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  Carlos has been stellar for the Baby Brewers and should be in Ogden next season
1  43 Osting, Jimmy   A   SP 42 R L
  Will go back to Indy to rehab before making his Brewers debut
new  44 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  Would do himself well to follow in Krynzel's footsteps in High Desert and start taking some more walks
4  45 Walker, Edwin   A   SP 36 R L
  Didn't pitch much in the month before he went on the DL, so it might just be a little tweak
new  46 Zoccolillo, Peter   AAA   RF 42 L R
  There are some definite Jim Rushford comparisons here
1  47 Stavros, Tony   A   CL 39 R R
  Has been absolutely amazing all season, and hopefully will follow Mike Adams up the line
2  48 Bibbs, Kennard   A   RF 39 L L
  Plays extraordinary defense in center, and along with his ability to draw walks, KB should move up quickly
new  49 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Still surprising that he signed, and Steve is producing early on
 50 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  Callix keeps on smacking the ball around, though defensive consistency is an issue

Players removed this week: Mike Adams... Gabriel Mendoza...
