Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 06/05/2003

  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 
1  01 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  He must be healthy again: second multi-homer game of the year the other day reinforces new found power for J.J.
1  02 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 36 L R
  It's almost a sure thing Brad will be back before the end of June, and he needs to get back into a groove pretty quickly
 03 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Despite some more good performances, Mike still can't quite gain that BB/K seperation we're looking for
 04 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  Is there any way to force opposing pitchers to pitch to Prince on a regular basis? Pitching around kids like this in the Midwest League is uncalled for
1  05 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 37 L L
  I'm willing to wager that Dave will reach a 1:1 ratio between walks and strikeouts before he steals bases at a 67% rate
1  06 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Still looking for that ERA to drop below 3 and those hits to come down a bit
 07 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Will be back (again) in the Huntsville rotation in about two weeks after some rehab outings in Arizona
 08 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  A few more defense gaffes recently, but the batting average is creeping closer to .300
 09 Ford, Matt   A   MR 38 S L
  How many of you out there want to see Matt Ford take a few turns in the rotation in replacement of Glendon Rusch? Me too
1  10 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Effective Wildness 101: While Luis has given up 32 walks in 73 innings, Southern League batters can't get a handle on the pitches they swing at, as witnessed by their .213 average off the big lefty
1  11 Petty, Chad   A   SP 37 L L
  Chad probably wants a do-over after his first appearence for the Mavericks: 4 hits, 1 walk, 4 runs, only out on a pickoff by the catcher
 12 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Encouraging news on Diggins leads the Power 50 to believe Ben could be back not too long after the All-Star break
 13 Cruz, Enrique   A   SS 37 R R
  Exactly how low does Clayton's batting average have to fall before Enrique stops riding the bench full time?
 14 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  DJ hasn't homered in more than 3 weeks, yet he still leads the system in home runs, with 12
 15 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Batting average is "up" to .154, which puts him "behind" Mike Kremblas by 27 average points - now there is a race to watch out for
1  16 Wilhelmsen, Tom   A   MR 35 R R
  Second in the system in wins, with 5
1  17 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  OK, Jason's been healthy for long enough that the Brewers should at least try to see if he has anything left as a catcher
1  18 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  First, Krynzel had to watch his tail because of Moss, so now does Moss have to watch his tail because of Gwynn and Fermaint? That's a long conga line of center fielders
1  19 Liriano, Pedro   A   SP 39 R R
  How in the world Liriano still has an ERA below 3 I'll never know
 20 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Billy was over .250 for a day! I'm not lying!
 21 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Have to wonder if something is still wrong with Ozzie... he shouldn't be having these problems in the Cal League
 22 Zoccolillo, Peter   AAA   RF 42 L R
  How about naming Zocco captain of the Indy squad?
 23 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  Might end up making some rehab starts with Helena before returning to Beloit
 24 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  A Brewerfan exclusive: Khalid may have the most attractive girlfriend of any Brewer minor leaguer
new  25 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
  After initially scratching my head at Louis's 3rd round selection, I've warmed up quite a bit to the young catcher
1  26 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Beginning rehab assignment down in Arizona and might be back with High Desert in a month
1  27 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Back to playing every day again, albeit it's in Arizona and Beloit
 28 Childers, Matt   A   MR 40 R R
  I'll use this space to note that Matt's older brother Jason may be becoming worthy of a Milwaukee call-up in the near future
 29 Varner, Noochie   MLB   RF 38 R R
  Like Petty, we'll spot Noochie a 2-21 start to his Brewers career and call it a re-do
 30 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  Hot/cold, hot/cold, hot/cold, and now hot again
4  31 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  Not good news: Mega might be getting an MRI on his pitching arm sometime in the next week and looks iffy for an action this year
1  32 Morris, Chris   A   CF 40 S R
  Quickly becoming a Cal League fast center fielder version of Jeremy Giambi
1  33 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  I feel bad every time I have to move Dave down a notch on here, but such is life
 34 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  Batting average is about 30 points higher than it was this time last week and that walk total keeps climbing, too
 35 Raburn, Johnny   A   IF 40 S R
  Effort to prove the Brewers wrong about Cal League placement not going so well lately
 36 Barnes, Justin   A   MR 37 R R
  Assuming 11th rounder Heether signs, Justin might be playing more than just third in Helena
4  37 Lawrence, Joe   A   C 42 R R
  One of these years, one of the 6-year free agents will stick
1  38 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  Just in case anyone was wondering, yes, Froilan is still a catching prospect, too
1  39 Eveland, Dana   MLB   SP 36 L L
  Without any real high draft picks being college pitchers, Eveland should have a spot in the Helena rotation
2  40 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  The Brewers are enamored with Sarfate, and if he keeps pitching like he is, it's no wonder why
2  41 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  With short-season ball less than 2 weeks away, Carlos better be in Helena or I'll... do something or another
2  42 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  2 errors this past week doubled his error total this year, a marked improvement over last season
2  43 Parker, Matt   A   SP 40 R R
  Matt may never get enough innings to qualify for the pitching leader boards, but we'll appreciate his 1.94 ERA anyway
4  44 Stavros, Tony   A   CL 39 R R
  Maybe the Brewers should consider trying Tony in the rotation full time
4  45 Gemoll, Brandon   A   1B 39 L L
  OBP is surprisingly low, and really needs to come up a bit as the summer moves on
3  46 Esparragoza, Pedro   A   C 37 R R
  Might fall victim to the 42 new catchers the Brewers just drafted
1  47 Housman, Jeff   A   MR 38 L L
  This is getting ridiculous... seriously, where is this coming from?
1  48 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  Stock just dropped a ton after the drafting of Gwynn and Fermaint
 49 Mannon, Adam   A   RF 35 R R
  The new Stephen Hunt, sans-retirement?
 50 Hall, Bo   MLB   MR 39 R R
  Bo hangs on to the final spot for another, though it looks like Josh Alliston is taking over the closer's spot
