Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 05/03/2003

  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
  New reports on Nelson's injury are better than before, and he may be back by the end of June
 02 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Minor hip injury has kept JJ out a bit, and thats the only thing that has slowed him down
 03 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  ERA getting better, though not by pitching getting better; I guess learning how to work out of jams is a good skill to learn, and Mike is learning all about it
 04 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  Is it wrong to complain that Prince only has 5 HR and is only second on the team in extra base hits?
 05 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Only a few days away from making a bullpen appearence
 06 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Manny keeps hacking away at that ERA
 07 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Bat continues to heat up, though Corey still needs to make better contact
 08 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Walking more often again, which is a key to Dave's future success
 09 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  As long as he keeps having success as a starter, the somewhat inevitable switch to closer will be held off
 10 Ford, Matt   A   MR 38 S L
  Matt has been the surprise of the Brewers' staff this early season
 11 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Well, Luis had to allow some earned runs eventually
 12 Cruz, Enrique   A   SS 38 R R
  I originally had an expletive-laden diatribe on the lack of Cruz' play time, but I realized this was a family web site, so I'll just wait until next week
 13 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Old habits die hard, but it is getting difficult to justify Jason this high up
 14 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  We can't have the nice things: Kade has a high ankle sprain that will keep him sidelined for a bit
2  15 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  Only player in baseball to lead his league in hits, home runs, and triples
 16 Liriano, Pedro   A   SP 39 R R
  Might be on the verge of a breakout game, like Mike Jones' last effort
1  17 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Back from his nagging ankle injury
3  18 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  Still awaiting results of Carp's MRI, so hopefully no news is good news
 19 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Had a good game on Friday... Yay
1  20 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Now comes the real test as J.M. moves into the rotation
2  21 Wilhelmsen, Tom   A   MR 35 R R
  It just keeps getting better and better for Tom... heck, maybe they should have started him in Huntsville, too
2  22 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  It is difficult to have a breakout season when you aren't playing
1  23 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  Joined the MRI party last Friday, and we're waiting on his results, too
1  24 Zoccolillo, Peter   AAA   RF 42 L R
  Pete finally has more walks than HBPs, and his OBP continues to be a light in the dark Indy lineup
3  25 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Hamstring injury could lead the Brewers to giving him some long rehab time in Arizona to work on hitting
 26 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  Remember the video game Megaman? Think that was based off of a young Eric Thomas?
3  27 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  After Adams' blow-up this last week, Matt could move into more of an end-of-the-game role for awhile
1  28 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  4 HR allowed in 18 IP? Eek
 29 Morris, Chris   A   CF 40 S R
  Not quite on pace to break the Brewers' minor league stolen base record (92), but he's close (85)
1  30 Lawrence, Joe   A   C 42 R R
  See-saw batting average back on the rise again
1  31 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Not hitting under .200 anymore, that's a plus
1  32 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  How much does the Indianapolis staff need Dave right now?
1  33 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  In a pretty bad hitting slump, but he'll pull out of it
2  34 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  Luis Pena but not Carlos in Beloit? You're killing me, new Brewers regime
6  35 Raburn, Johnny   A   IF 40 S R
  The campaign starts here: "Raburn In Huntsville By June"
2  36 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  Froilan continues to play well in Nelson's absence
 37 Stavros, Tony   A   CL 39 R R
  That one bad appearence cotinues to haunt Stavros' stat line, but the secondary stats aren't generally doing too well, either
2  38 Gemoll, Brandon   A   1B 39 L L
  C'mon, they released Bill Scott because of you... where's the raking?
4  39 Hall, Dan   A   SP 40 R R
  The rock of the High Desert rotation
5  40 Veras, Wilton   A   3B 41 R R
  Errors aren't helping Wilton's cause
2  41 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Demotion to Huntsville might be in order if the offense doesn't pick up real, real soon
 42 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  I keep forgetting that Francisco isn't even 19 yet, but three years of short-season ball is still three years of short-season ball
1  43 Esparragoza, Pedro   A   C 37 R R
  Big boost in batting average continues on, and if Petey can develop some offensive game, he'll be in the big leagues sooner than later
2  44 Foster, Brian   A   C 38 R R
  The all-or-nothing swing is what is holding him back: 13 extra base hits and 32 strike outs in 95 at-bats
4  45 Hall, Bo   MLB   MR 39 R R
  Closing is the next best thing to starting, so Bo will stick around a little longer on the Power 50
1  46 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  As highly as he was originally ranked, Jon's Power 50 train is quickly losing steam
new  47 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  Reports out of Beloit have been glowing about Sarfate's stuff so far in 2003
 48 Vanden Berg, John   A   C 39 R R
  K/BB ratio reverting back to Ogden form, which wasn't all that hot
new  49 Mendoza, Gabriel   A   MR 37 L L
  Lighting up Midwest League batters and providing a nice tag-team with Bo Hall at the end of the pen
new  50 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  Cutting way down on strikeouts this year, which will greatly improve his chances of making it if it continues on

Players removed this week: Pasqual Coco... Shane Nance... Mike Nicolas...
