Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 04/24/2003

  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 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 36 L R
  Sore wrist turned into a broken wrist and Brad will be out til the after the All-Star break
1  02 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Now walking more than once every 5 AB, which proves what a little will and determination will do for a prospect
1  03 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Curveball has been on and off at Huntsville, which has added some walks to his stat line
1  04 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  Hits home runs when he wants to, walks when he wants to, drives in runs when he wants to
1  05 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Still has some elbow tightness that is keeping him out of the rotation, but he'll begin throwing out of the bullpen and getting into some games in a week's time
 06 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Second-highest ERA in the Beloit rotation, but that won't last
 07 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Hitting .300 all of the sudden, though that K/BB ratio needs some work
 08 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Another bat that was off to start is coming around slowly and the better stolen base ratio is nice to see
 09 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Slider has been showing steady improvement and that pitch teamed with his fastball could make him a dominant closer someday
 10 Ford, Matt   A   MR 38 S L
  You almost want to try Matt is some more pressure situations just to see how he reacts
1  11 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Tied with the longest 0.00 ERA streak (23 innings pitched) in the minors so far this year
1  12 Cruz, Enrique   A   SS 38 R R
  On pace to get a whopping 62 at-bats this season
 13 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Hitting everything in sight, now just needs to hit it a little farther
1  14 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Minor league-best 18 game hitting streak just keeps on a 'rollin
1  15 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  Very effectively uber-wild
 16 Liriano, Pedro   A   SP 39 R R
  Not allowing way too many runs, but the WHIP is nearing 2
 17 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  Leads the minor league in hits (though not batting average) with 35 base knocks
2  18 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Has been out of the lineup the past few days and it could be that foot/ankle problem acting up again
1  19 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Batting .172 is better than what he was batting last week, I guess
1  20 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Still awaiting word on Ozzie's return
1  21 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Had a great outing this past week and maybe, just maybe, might be ready to break out
1  22 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  A little over-matched right now in Beloit, and it will be interesting to see if the Brewers let him work through it or try someone else in his roster spot
4  23 Wilhelmsen, Tom   A   MR 35 R R
  The Brewers' surprising promotion of Wilhelmson to Beloit seems to be genious, as Tom is throwing by everyone already
1  24 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  6.00 ERA is an aberration, it'll be down in the 3-4 range before you know it
 25 Zoccolillo, Peter   AAA   RF 42 L R
  On pace to get hit with 40 pitches this season, and more importantly, OPS is trending upwards towards 900
2  26 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  I'm going to write a book entitled "Where's Mega?" and make people try to find a 6'9 baseball player on an empty field in Phoenix
1  27 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  As the Stars bats come around, Mike will get more save opportunities
new  28 Nicolas, Mike   A   MR 40 R R
  Mildly perplexing as to why the Padres waived him, but hey, I'll go with it
1  29 Morris, Chris   A   CF 40 S R
  Strikeouts and caught stealings both need to come way, way down
1  30 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  In a weird long-relief role right now, of which I don't understand the thinking behind
1  31 Lawrence, Joe   A   C 42 R R
  Has fallen into the same offensive hole as the rest of the Indy lineup
1  32 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  If Clark's performance in High Desert isn't worrying Cristian, it should be
1  33 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  Interesting stat: has averaged a .280 opponents' batting average as a minor league pro
1  34 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  If he keeps hitting like he does, he could be in for a long run up the Power 50
2  35 Veras, Wilton   A   3B 41 R R
  Well, he's only struck out twice in 49 at-bats
2  36 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  I would buy season tickets if they promoted Carlos to Beloit tomorrow
1  37 Stavros, Tony   A   CL 39 R R
  Front of the line for "Worst Pitching Line Of The Year": 1.2 innings pitched, 10 hits, 7 runs, all earned
1  38 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  Getting the bulk of the time at first base in Nelson's absence, but doesn't have the stick to stay there
2  39 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Sub-300 OPS? Egads
1  40 Gemoll, Brandon   A   1B 39 L L
  Hitting some doubles and drawing some walks but needs to do even more of both to be effective
3  41 Raburn, Johnny   A   IF 40 S R
  As Chris Barnwell's BA slides in Huntsville, the notion of Raburn in High Desert continues to get more ridiculous
2  42 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  If Moss' injury lingers, Francisco could be his replacement
 43 Hall, Dan   A   SP 40 R R
  4.26 ERA for the Mavs is Hall Of Fame material
3  44 Esparragoza, Pedro   A   C 37 R R
  Petey can hit! Who knew?
3  45 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  If the arm injury remains not serious, Jon will probably be back around the second week of May
3  46 Foster, Brian   A   C 38 R R
  22 strikeouts doesn't bode well for things to come in Huntsville
3  47 Nance, Shane   A   MR 42 L L
  Getting hit hard with the Crew and may be back in Indy before the month is through
2  48 Vanden Berg, John   A   C 39 R R
  Nice to see Vandy holding his own in terms of plate discipline
3  49 Hall, Bo   MLB   MR 39 R R
  Losing his Power 50 steam as a middle reliever in Beloit
2  50 Coco, Pasqual   A   SP 42 R R
  He's pitching better than Jamey Wright
