Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 06/19/2003

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 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Usually testing an organization's patience is a bad thing, but JJ has to be testing the philosophy of keeping the AA team together with his amazing season
 02 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 36 L R
  Lack of extra base hits or not, Nelly has struck out all of two times in 50 AB, which could be a sign of a forthcoming ridiculous offensive outburst
 03 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Wins and losses are not an especially important statistic; that said, is sure makes you feel good when a guy like Mike goes out there and battles for the win each time, as his 6-2 record shows
1  04 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  OBP finally finishes a Power 50 week over .400, and the walks and hits just keep coming
1  05 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  Jeff Eure has now caught up to Prince in doubles, triples, and home runs, and the batting average is about to dip into the .270's
 06 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  After scuffling around for a few starts, Manny has been lighting it up as of late and could be promoted to High Desert sooner than later
 07 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  The arm is at about 95% and a plane ticket back to Huntsville will be forthcoming shortly
 08 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Corey has been walking quite a bit more recently, something he needs to build on in addition to making better, consistent contact
 09 Ford, Matt   A   MR 38 S L
  The Power 50 has its fingers crossed that by this time next week, Matt will be in the Milwaukee rotation
 10 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Ben Sheets does indeed have company for worst hitting pitcher in the organization: Luis has 22 plate appearences, featuring 16 strikeouts
 11 Petty, Chad   A   SP 37 L L
  Peripheral numbers aren't too bad for Chad, but the stat that matters, a 9.53 ERA, needs a little work
 12 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Latest word on the Diggins injury is that no one knows if he should have surgery or not... not a good omen
 13 Cruz, Enrique   A   SS 38 R R
  I'd hope that Helms' day-to-day status at third would maybe allow Enrique some more playing time, but it's more likely he'll just have a new friend on the bench for a couple of days
1  14 Wilhelmsen, Tom   A   MR 36 R R
  Tom hit 97 MPH on the gun at the Midwest League All-Star Game, both raising some eyebrows and his status on the Power 50
1  15 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  DJ is still keeping that OBP up through walks, but that's about all he's doing at the plate
1  16 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Steve's stolen bases, or lack thereof, are not quite what we expected, but we'll blame it on his still-recovering ankle
1  17 Liriano, Pedro   A   SP 39 R R
  Only averaging 5.1 innings per start due to throwing way too many balls, something that needs to be addressed
2  18 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Back down batting .159, ever in search of the streak that will get him to the Mendoza line
1  19 Zoccolillo, Peter   AAA   RF 42 L R
  Leads the organization in doubles, with 18
1  20 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Jason just keeps on slapping the ball around for the Mavericks, though they need him to boost the power up some more
 21 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  Billy has gotten a lot of flack over the past season, but he is hitting almost .260 now with Indy, so maybe his star isn't totally faded
 22 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Three triples and five caught stealings in 90 AB? Weird
 23 Carpenter, Calvin   A   SP 37 R R
  Still in Beloit, hanging out around the field, waiting for something to happen... ah, the life of a pitcher on the DL
 24 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  Coming back soon to a Beloit pitching staff that is fuller than Jeffrey Hammonds' bank account
 25 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
  Hitless in first professional game, so he's lucky to still be in the Power 50
3  26 Varner, Noochie   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Wasn't Noochie hitting under .200 this time last week? Holy batting average climb
1  27 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  The High Desert staff needs him back, but does J.M. really want to go there?
1  28 Murray, Josh   A   3B 35 R R
  Josh still being in Arizona instead of with the Helena club is not a good sign for him
1  29 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  Still plugging away with no real role in the Huntsville bullpen
 30 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  Have to wonder if he's jealous with Brian Adams' name
 31 Morris, Chris   A   CF 40 S R
  Chris just can't seem to keep that OBP up to where it should be, it's always either not enough hits or not enough walks
1  32 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  I felt bad about knocking Dave down a spot last week, so here he is moving up one for no real reason
1  33 Thomas, Eric M.   A   SP 38 R R
  Officially placed on the Arizona roster, which means injury problems are persisting
 34 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  Batting average has stalled on its ride back to respectability, but .236 is still a heckuva lot better than .185
2  35 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  Like Parra, probably should be on the lookout for that ticket to High Desert
1  36 Raburn, Johnny   A   IF 40 S R
  Johnny has been on a power binge lately, as he now as 5, count 'em, extra base hits on the year
1  37 Barnes, Justin   A   MR 37 R R
  Hit the first home run of the year for the Helena club, so Justin is off to a good start with the Brewers
1  38 Eveland, Dana   MLB   SP 36 L L
  Five strikeouts and only an infield hit allowed over two innings in first pro appearence, not too bad at all
1  39 Ramirez, Carlos   A   SP 35 L L
  Not only made the Helena club, he's in the gosh darn rotation
2  40 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  It'll be interesting to see which High Desert utility guy gets promoted to Huntsville first, and it may well be Froilan
 41 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  Needs to keep going with walking, because Ralph will need that skill when the batting average dives next season with Huntsville
 42 Fermaint, Charlie   A   CF 34 R R
  I don't get why the Arizona League starts later than the Pioneer League... let the kids play!
2  43 Housman, Jeff   A   MR 38 L L
  The memories of that horrendous 2002 Ogden campaign are now completely wiped away from memory
1  44 Parker, Matt   A   SP 41 R R
  With Jeff Robinson possibly out with an injury and Derrek Lee staring down a promotion, hopefully we'll see Matt back in the rotation soon
1  45 Gemoll, Brandon   A   1B 39 L L
  Maybe the decrease in plate discipline and increase in power in Brandon's game have to do with who is coming up behind him at first
3  46 Vanden Berg, John   A   C 39 R R
  John Vanden Berg leading the Beloit Snappers in batting average? It's true
 47 Esparragoza, Pedro   A   C 37 R R
  Offense has returned back to the ugly levels it was at most of last season... c'mon, OPS over 600
 48 Mannon, Adam   A   RF 36 R R
  The Arizona club might be a little offensively challenged, so they're going to look to Adam for a boost
new  49 Septimo, Agustin   A   UT 35 S R
  Emerging Latin prospect has the tools to be a dynamite SS, and the Brewers are showing confidence in him by skipping him past the Arizona League
 50 Miller, Ryan   A   MR 41 R R
  I only meant to have Ryan on here for a week, but he benefits from my laziness in trying to find someone else
