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 
1  01 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  The Brewers' minor league Pitcher Of The Year should be one of the many arms in major league camp next spring
1  02 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Can't wait to see him go as those doubles (49) starting turning into more homers (20)
2  03 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Mike's velocity was back to normal by the end of the season, so hopefully next season it can stay up to begin the season
 04 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Plate discipline went through a lapse after the promotion to Huntsville
1  05 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  Struggles in Beloit ended pretty much any thought that Prince would be jumped to High Desert for next season
4  06 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Corey came on very strong at the end of the season and ended up with respectable numbers
1  07 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  As bad as the numbers looked, JJ will still be looked at in major league camp next spring
1  08 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Could have had half the ERA he put up if the Brewers hadn't told him to work on specific things in-game
 09 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Started the season in advanced-A ball and is now in the rotation for the Crew... not bad at all
1  10 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Once the walks come down, Matt has the stuff to be a top tier prospect
1  11 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  No one's blocking Jeff at third next season in Indianapolis, or for that matter in Milwaukee
1  12 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  I have a feeling, I really do: next season will be Jason's breakout campaign
1  13 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Struggled for most of the season at the plate and in the field, but Josh has the tools to succeed
1  14 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Move to the bullpen is very likely eventually, but Luis will probably be back in the Huntsville rotation in 2003
1  15 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  Second on the High Desert team in homers despite missing most of the last two months of the season
1  16 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Did almost nothing well in Indianapolis and Billy needs to prove himself next season
3  17 Stewart, Paul   A   MR 41 R R
  One of those guys you can really see the Brewers forgetting to add to the 40-man
4  18 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  Definitely not getting overworked in his time with the Brewers: 17 days, 4.2 innings pitched
1  19 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Also definitely not overworked: just over 100 innings pitched in the past 3 years combined
1  20 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Made admirable progress during his second season in the states
3  21 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  There was some late-season drop-off, but this is next season's Matt Yeatman
2  23 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Kade should finally be ready for that jump to AA
1  24 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  Much like Steitz last season, there's something to build off of, and we'll see how that goes
1  25 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 40 R R
  Just won't make it to Milwaukee with the lack of plate discipline he has displayed
2  26 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  Consistently around the plate all season, just need to see those hits allowed come down
 27 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  Had tons of problems at the plate in Ogden, but he'll be back next season to try it again
2  28 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Maybe Cris just needs a change of scenery
 29 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  Going into the season, we were hoping that Mieses would be in the Milwaukee rotation by this point
1  30 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Steve has mastered that AA thing, so it's back to AAA for 2003
1  31 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  One of the big disappointments of the 2002, let's hope he can get and stay healthy for 2003
new  32 Morris, Chris   A   CF 40 S R
  Way too old for the league, Chris should be right behind wherever Krynzel is next season
 33 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  After imploding as a starter, Matt really turned a corner this season as a reliever
4  34 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  About as consistent as you can get for the vast majority of the season
6  35 Zoccolillo, Peter   AAA   RF 42 L R
  A 900+ OPS in the Southern League is ridiculously good
2  36 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Instructional league, spring training, extended spring training, then let's see him pitch in Ogden
1  37 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  Will go back to High Desert, where he failed an early season test, next season
3  38 Ramirez, Manny   A   1B 37 R R
  If he can play catcher and can hit, why don't the Brewers think more of him?
new  39 Raburn, Johnny   A   IF 40 S R
  An unspectacular debut for the former Angels speedster
3  40 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  Had a couple decent starts mixed in with bad ones to end the season, so there's still hope
3  41 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Yah, it was only 8 AB, but the kid slugged 1.000 in Ogden to finish the season... we believe in you, Steve
3  42 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  See Steitz
3  43 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 39 L R
  Probably back in Beloit to start next season... Judd is better than he has been pitching
new  44 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  Did just about everything right statistically, but we'll see if the tools project as he moves up the ladder
new  45 Stavros, Tony   A   CL 39 R R
  How can you argue with what Tony accomplished in Beloit? Like Mike Adams, hopefully the success will continue
2  46 Breslow, Craig   A   MR 39 L L
  It's the rare middle reliever that is 4th on his team in innings pitched and leads the team in ERA
4  47 Melo, Manuel   A   CF 38 R R
  If the Brewers could team Melo up with Kenard Bibbs, they'd have a heck of a player
new  48 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  The Brewers really like this guy, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him in big league camp in spring
1  49 Hall, Dan   A   SP 40 R R
  It's still a mystery why Dan was in Beloit this season anyway, but he was even more dominant than last season
new  50 Hall, Bo   MLB   MR 39 R R
  He and Ballouli were almost like old veterans in the Ogden rotation: just stable, stable, stable

Players removed this week: Stephen Hunt... Nick Neugebauer... Jimmy Osting...
