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 37 L R
  Brad might be the next Maverick to hit a home run, and he won't be back until June sometime
 02 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Hopefully JJ will be back in the lineup fulltime within the next few days
 03 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  21 inning scoreless streak is a vast improvement over earlier outings and that's why he's still #3 and Prince is #4
 04 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  I keep making the mistake of looking in the High Desert page on Brewerfan for Fielder's stats; Is this a premonition or my insanity?
 05 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Pitched two scoreless innings in his first game back and pitching coach Stan Kyles said that he could have pitched better
 06 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  The ERA is under 3.00 and keeps dropping; Next stop, league leaderboard
1  07 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Please keep Dave away from Alex Sanchez and his baserunning vibes
1  08 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Defense is back on the upswing, and he's only on pace to get 35 errors
 09 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  On the DL with a "tired arm," but at least it isn't asleep
 10 Ford, Matt   A   MR 38 S L
  Only coming in in blowout situations, but he's quickly becoming one of the bullpen leaders in innings pitched
 11 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Numbers coming around to near-human levels
 12 Cruz, Enrique   A   SS 38 R R
  The Brewers even let Enrique start a game... wow
1  13 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Kade has made himself into a real live catching prospect, so don't dissapoint Brewer fans everywhere, Mr. Johnson... no pressure
1  14 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  3 walks in first 11 AA at-bats is a good sign, even with only 1 hit
2  15 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Maybe Jason can use Kade Johnson as motivation and get back behind the dish
 16 Liriano, Pedro   A   SP 39 R R
  Putting up a hard thrower's secondary numbers, but he's not one of those guys, so you'd like to see those walks go down a bit and have him pitch to contact a little more
 17 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Scuffling at the plate after his hot start, but hey, he's 19, we'll give him a break
1  18 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Batting average over .250? Holy crap!
2  19 Wilhelmsen, Tom   A   MR 36 R R
  Tom is giving Mr. Parra a run for his money for the label of best Beloit pitching prospect
2  20 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  MRI results were good and Calvin will likely just need to go through some shoulder strengthening
1  21 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Ozzie is back this weekend!
2  22 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Back on the DL with who-knows-what and might be another potential 40-man removal
1  23 Zoccolillo, Peter   AAA   RF 42 L R
  Zoccolillo and Rushford on the same team - now that's an untoolsy-productive-corner-OF-lover's dream
1  24 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  On the Beloit DL, though, like Carpenter, the shoulder injury isn't that serious and he'll be back before you know it
 25 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Back to it in Beloit, so let's hope that bat heats up
 26 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  At this point, I'll take either Eric Thomas in Beloit
 27 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  It sucks when you give up 1 run in 4 innings pitched and your ERA goes up
 28 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  Mike has some work to do if he wants to get promoted 2 times again this season
 29 Morris, Chris   A   CF 40 S R
  The Brewers haven't really had a huge stolen base guy in the system in the past few years, so it's kind of mind boggling to see a player half way to 50 in the middle of May
2  30 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  Sometimes, you don't have to do anything to get into the top 30
1  31 Lawrence, Joe   A   C 42 R R
  Plate discipline is good, but batting average still matters
1  32 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  Let's hope the batting average toilet has been reached, because all the secondary stats are still looking mighty good
2  33 Raburn, Johnny   A   IF 40 S R
  Maybe Johnny's promotion to Huntsville is contingent on him getting a double
 34 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  If Carlos knew how big of a fan I was, he'd probably be scared
2  35 Stavros, Tony   A   CL 39 R R
  Tony erased his one horrendous relief outing with a strong starting performance and is now third on the team in ERA
 36 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  Froilan is quietly sneaking back into prospectdom
1  37 Gemoll, Brandon   A   1B 39 L L
  More extra base hits than Nelson and Fielder combined! - who is the king of the mountain now?
1  38 Hall, Dan   A   SP 40 R R
  Dan is about to the point where he needs to be rescued from Cal League ball; if the Southern League is good enough for Mike Jones...
1  39 Veras, Wilton   A   3B 41 R R
  Who knew Wes Helms' major league OPS would be over 100 points higher than Wilton's AAA OPS 100+ AB into the season?
3  40 Esparragoza, Pedro   A   C 37 R R
  Here's to hoping that Pete can finish with more extra base hits than stolen bases
 41 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  The errors are down at SS, but he'd look very nice next to Hardy in Huntsville
2  42 Foster, Brian   A   C 38 R R
  It'll be interesting to see if Brian maintains any sort of walk rate now that the protection he had (Clark and Johnson) has gone elsewhere
2  43 Hall, Bo   MLB   MR 39 R R
  I'm resigned to the fact that this Hall won't be seeing any rotation time in the near future, so rare back and give it to 'em, Bo
2  44 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  Move Kenard Bibbs up the High Desert and give Plasencia a chance in Beloit - placate me, Doug and Reid
2  45 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  Walks allowed are turning a little bit stinky, but as long as the ERA stays down, we'll take it for now
 46 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Still no word on his arm injury, but we're half way through May, so it can't be too good
3  47 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  If Ralph continues to develop offensively, the tag team of him and Chavez should be the best middle infield combo in the system
1  48 Mendoza, Gabriel   A   MR 37 L L
  The next Luis Martinez?
1  49 Vanden Berg, John   A   C 39 R R
  Losing playing time to Esparragoza even though John has the better stick of the two, he's not quite coming through
new  50 Breslow, Craig   A   MR 39 L L
  It's not often a player stays behind in extended spring training because of an illness, but Craig did, persevered, and is throwing darts for the Snappers finally
