Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 09/25/2002

  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
  Struggling a bit with control on rehab, but the back is fine and Nick should see Milwaukee by season's end
 02 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  If Ben had 45 more innings pitched, he'd lead the Southern League in ERA
 03 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Needs 4 more doubles (as of Monday) to break Darrell Nicholas' Brewers minor league doubles record of 47, set in 1997
 04 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  Wildly up and down week for Prince, and the errors are beginning to pile up
 05 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  The least overmatched of the trio promoted from High Desert, though Super Dave is struggling a bit
1  06 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Back into a groove after a couple of dominant outings
1  07 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Has gone from working on his fastball to getting tattooed by opposing hitters
 08 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Corey has finally hit the wall this season, it appears
 09 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  It looks like Billy Hall's SS position will be safe in Indianapolis in 2003, at least initially
1  10 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  With Diggins gunning it like he is, the Brewers should not even begin thinking of pulling him from the rotation into the pen
1  11 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Arm appears to be wearing down a bit, so thankfully it's almost the end of the season
 12 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Should be fun to see Jason's bat at work in High Desert next season, if the Brewers play there
3  13 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  With the Stars slipping out of playoff contention, it may be time to promote Jeff to AAA
1  14 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Be warned: the offensive going might be ugly next season in Beloit
1  15 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Haven't addressed his defense much, but I will say that 37 errors is atrocious
1  16 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  Assuming he's healed for the instructional league, DJ should see most of his field time in left field
1  17 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Would be nice if Luis could finish the season strong and get the ERA under 5
 19 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Well, at least he isn't racking up those grueling innings
 20 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Nothing to jump up and down about here, but he's done very well for himself in Beloit
2  21 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  Two impressive relief outings have earned Mega a place back in the Ogden rotation
 22 Stewart, Paul   A   MR 41 R R
  ERA continues to go the wrong way some more, but Paul's probably earned himself a place on the 40-man
1  23 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Hey, I'm just happy to see Kade out there, playing
3  24 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  Dominated the Arizona League, but can't make heads of the Pioneer League
1  25 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  Home run totals are a bit worrisome, especially in the Southern League
2  26 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  Arguably the ace of the Ogden staff this season
2  27 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 40 R R
  Will the Brewers try Elie in Indianapolis next season?
1  28 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Had that good two week stretch, but all we get of Cristian's total package is glimpses
 29 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  The Brewers should start a support group for injured pitchers
2  30 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  As long as the hits come down, Khalid should dominate in Beloit next year
 31 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  Keeps showing glimpses of what he is capable of, but you have to wonder if Bill is still a little injured
2  32 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Back with Huntsville, and butchering balls in the field pretty regularly
 33 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  Having control problems so far in the bigs, and just needs to settle down a little
 34 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  Makes promising starts every so often just to make you stay interested
 35 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Hasn't made one of those promising starts in awhile
1  36 Ramirez, Manny   A   1B 37 R R
  Would do best being the everyday catcher, but the Brewers won't let that happen
2  37 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  Offensive slump appears to be coming to an end
2  38 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  Looks to have been booted from the rotation, and would do well to stay out of Beloit to begin next season
3  39 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  Seems to get more impressive with each start; could skip past Ogden into Beloit
1  40 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 39 L R
  Might be promoted to Ogden to help the staff there with the playoff run
3  41 Mendez, Mario   A   RF 38 S R
  Is still doing just enough to tease, but Mario's been generally stinky since week 3
2  42 Melo, Manuel   A   CF 38 R R
  Will move up the ladder due to his speed alone, though his game needs a ton of work
 43 Osting, Jimmy   A   SP 42 R L
  Kind of an ugly first major league start, but he didn't allow any runs
 44 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  It might help Ralph's consistency if he adds some muscle to his upper body this offseason
1  45 Zoccolillo, Peter   AAA   RF 42 L R
  Has been a very valuable veteran member of a young AA club
1  46 Walker, Edwin   A   SP 36 R L
  Still trying to get some word on Edwin's injury
 47 Stavros, Tony   A   CL 39 R R
  Lost for only the second time all season last week
1  48 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Rate of strikeouts isn't encouraging, but the rate of walks is very nice to look at
1  49 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  Should be reteamed with SS Murray in 2003 in Beloit
new  50 Hall, Bo   MLB   MR 39 R R
  Bo has worked his way back into the rotation and is among the league leaders in ERA
