Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 02/14/2002

  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
  With his shoulder problems hopefully behind him he should be set to take off
 02 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Earned high praise by making it onto the Baseball America Top 100 prospects list
 03 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Really needs to work the plate more and develop more on-base skill to take it to the next level
 04 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Early concentrations on working the count have produced results
1  05 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  3rd best pitching prospect will have his breaking ball challenged in High Desert
1  06 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  His one major flaw is his defense and that does need to get worked out
2  07 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Showed major tools in the big league camp and may be finally poised for a breakout season
 08 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  His glove is virtually major-league ready but his bat still needs a bit of work
2  09 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  Continued health problems are taking their toll on his prospect status
5  10 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  His power could blossom in High Desert this season with 30 HR a reasonable guess
1  11 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  Might potentially bump Jenkins over from left to right in a year or so
1  12 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Would be much more valuable at third base so it is a little surprising the Brewers didn't even try him there
 13 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  This will be a make or break season for JM - we'll see if he has gotten his stuff all the way back
7  14 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Won a spot in the Beloit rotation after a very impressive spring
1  15 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Athletic enough for the outfield but can be dazzling at first base too
6  16 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Has some critics to answer to after last season's debacle but he has the skills to do it
1  17 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  The top lefty in the system just needs to develop some focus on the mound and the sky is the limit
new  19 Melian, Jackson   MLB   CF 39 R R
  One of the great "tools" prospects of recent years comes to Huntsville to try to put it to together
1  20 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Just can't keep healthy and his future as an everyday catcher is in doubt - a fulltime move to leftfield might be in the works
8  21 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  It would be helpful for his development if Belcher were put at High Desert but that won't happen for now
1  22 Sanchez, Alex   MLB   CF 43 L L
  Had a stellar spring training and has the makings of a decent backup outfielder
7  23 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  The move away from third base has really helped him offensively but if he wants to be more valuable he should try going back
1  24 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  Maybe the most difficult person to project in the entire system
3  25 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  A nice surprise to find him on Beloit's roster to begin the season
2  26 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  Falling off of the map after a bad season so he needs to get going in the right direction pretty soon
9  27 Parker, Matt   A   SP 41 R R
  Floundering early in the bullpen in AA
3  28 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  Let the comparisons to Jeff Pickler begin
12  29 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 40 R R
  If Eli could just draw some more walks he would be a much bigger prospect
4  30 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 39 L R
  Healthy again and could be a fast mover with a good start
16  31 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Busted out last season and put himself smack dab in the middle of the radar
3  32 Soriano, Carlos   A   RF 41 R R
  Busted out last season and put himself smack dab in the middle of the radar
5  33 Maysonet, Roberto   A   SP 39 R R
  Superlive arm but he needs to develop some poise and control
new  34 Barnwell, Chris   A   IF 40 R R
  A very hardnosed ballplayer who is a good leader for a young Beloit roster
18  35 Randolph, Jaisen   A   CF 40 S R
  Chad Green with the ability to take a walk
9  36 Poe, Ryan   A   SP 42 R R
  Should begin throwing excercises shortly and be back on the mound by summer
new  37 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  Young lanky speedster might have a chance to make a splash in Beloit by the end of the season
5  38 Carrow, Tommy   A   CF 38 R R
  Got shafted out of a spot in Beloit to open the season
13  39 Nielsen, Brian   A   MR 38 L L
  The 3rd best lefty in the system and one more guy that needs to step up to give depth at the position
3  40 Gordon, Justin   A   MR 40 L L
  Might want to just forget about High Desert before all is said and done
new  41 Henderson, Eric   A   MR 40 L L
  After missing more than a year with shoulder surgery, Dean Taylor's 3rd-ever pick could be a nice surprise
new  42 Castillo, Geraldo   A   MR 37 R R
  Displayed superlative control in Ogden last season but will have to wait for Beloit
7  43 Cesar, Dionys   A   UT 43 L R
  Probably deserves a shot in Milwaukee sometime this season
new  44 Hinton, Travis   AA   1B 39 L L
  Has a good chunk of raw power but might sturggle to hit for average at times
3  45 Penney, Mike   A   MR 42 R R
  Being on the disabled list is not a good way to start the year for the ex-top 10 prospect
6  46 Hammond, Derry   A   RF 40 R R
  16 strikeouts and 3 hits in first 30 at bats spells disaster
1  47 Cordero, Victor   A   MR 41 R R
  Holding up well through his first handfull of appearences with the Mavs
9  48 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  A hitting machine early in the season
new  49 West, Todd   AAA   2B 40 R R
  Move to second base hurts his prospect status evn more but on the bright side he hit a home run
new  50 Osting, Jimmy   A   SP 42 R L
  Just turned 25 and was the Braves' 8th best prospect not 2 years ago
