Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 03/15/2002

  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 Neugebauer, Nick   A   SP 39 R R
  Mixed results so far in Milwaukee but his arm is drawing rave reviews and comparisons to Josh Beckett
 02 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  As with all young pitchers Mike has to learn to be around the plate more and not give up so many walks
 03 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Cutting down on strikeouts is step one in the next phase of Dave's development
 04 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 39 R R
  A good week followed by a bad week but is still playing well overall
 05 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  High walk totals are kind of surprising but he is still keeping the ball down well
 06 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 37 L R
  Still not throwing out a good percentage of runners although his bat is heating up
 07 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Has played a bit of centerfield so far and if he shows he can play there is all the more valuable
 08 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Has made the Brewers look smart by hitting well so far after bypassing Beloit
3  09 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 36 L R
  Is just oozing power but needs to try and draw some more walks and cut down on bad swings
1  10 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  Still no word on Jose's return
2  11 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Should be back on the hill in High Desert in about a month
2  12 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Has made some big strides since last season and should move into the top 10 pretty soon
2  13 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  The big difference between Corey and Sexson is that Corey makes good contact, which he is doing thusfar
4  14 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  Slumping at the plate to begin the season although he still is drawing walks
4  15 Melian, Jackson   MLB   CF 39 R R
  Walked 8 times in 7 games last week and if he starts hitting for power Jackson could be dangerous
5  16 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  Would benefit greatly if he were allowed to play everyday instead of intermittently
1  18 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 39 L L
  Getting smoked in Huntsville but probably wouldn't be doing any better in High Desert bandbox
3  19 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Has been amazingly inconsistant pitch to pitch so far this spring and early season
1  20 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  If he just took a few more walks Florian could well be in the top 10
1  21 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Getting himself into playing shape down in Arizona and should arrive in Huntsville within a month
 22 Sanchez, Alex   MLB   CF 43 L L
  About a month or so away from graduating off of the Power 50
 23 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  Needs to develop some other tool besides power
 24 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  I'd get down on Matt for his bad start to the season but who knows what he will do next
 25 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  Needs to get more work in down in Beloit
 26 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  Uninspiring start to the season
2  27 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 40 R R
  As is the running theme, Eli would be a whole lot better if he drew walks
2  28 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 39 L R
  One good start and one bad start so far but I am really liked what I saw from Judd during spring
1  29 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  Having playing time taken away from him by Scott Candelaria is a travesty
3  30 Parker, Matt   A   SP 41 R R
  Still getting shellacked in Huntsville
 31 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Slow start to the season but that can be expected from a guy his age
 32 Soriano, Carlos   A   RF 41 R R
  Belongs in Beloit over Hector Garcia
2  33 Randolph, Jaisen   A   CF 40 S R
  Little speedster could be another CF weapon for the Brewers to use in the near future
1  34 Maysonet, Roberto   A   SP 39 R R
  Holding his ERA down well but all those walks will come back to get him eventually
3  35 Carrow, Tommy   A   CF 38 R R
  My good faith in the Brewers has been restored with the addition of Tommy to the Beloit roster
 36 Poe, Ryan   A   SP 42 R R
  About 2 months from returning to the mound for Huntsville
2  37 Nielsen, Brian   A   MR 38 L L
  If he keeps pitching solidly like he is he could pass Artman in no time
3  38 Henderson, Eric   A   MR 40 L L
  Kind of a forgotten commodity last season is beginning to prove he was worth a 3rd round selection
2  39 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  It would be nice to see him in Beloit this season
6  40 Barnwell, Chris   A   IF 40 R R
  Struggling at the plate so far this season and could lose his fulltime 3B job to Villanueva sooner or later
1  41 Castillo, Geraldo   A   MR 37 R R
  Could be the next pitcher called up to Beloit
1  42 Cesar, Dionys   A   UT 43 L R
  Just keeps chugging along in AAA and trying to get the Brewers' attention
new  43 Knox, Ryan   A   CF 42 R R
  Making the Brewers look silly for demoting him to High Desert
 44 Hinton, Travis   AA   1B 39 L L
  Has a good bat with decent power but needs some defensive work and might end up at first
5  45 Gordon, Justin   A   MR 40 L L
  Really stuggling with the confines in High Desert and it's not going to get easier as it gets warmer
3  46 West, Todd   AAA   2B 40 R R
  Hit almost .400 last week
1  47 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Just about the only good thing going for Huntsville in week 1 went south in week 2
1  48 Cordero, Victor   A   MR 41 R R
  Just needs to make it through the season in High Desert and then should thrive in Huntsville
4  49 Penney, Mike   A   MR 42 R R
  If he isn't back he will probably drop back off of the radar screen
4  50 Hammond, Derry   A   RF 40 R R
  Yikes: 24 strikeouts in 51 at-bats and Derry is losing playing time
