Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 05/01/2002

  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
  Nuke is quickly learning that the Milwaukee offense won't help him out much
 02 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Had his best pro outing last week - 7 innings allowing only 2 hits and 1 walk while K'ing 7
 03 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Taking walks a lot more regular basis than last season and his contact skills aren't taking a hit because of it
 04 Hall, Billy   MLB   3B 40 R R
  First week he was drawing walks, second week he was in a slump and last week he was hitting the ball hard
 05 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Needs to start fine tuning his stuff and develop consistancy for the next jump up
 06 Belcher, Jason   A   RF 38 L R
  Not really playing defense or hitting well so far this season
 07 Guerrero, Cristian   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Having hot and cold spells at the plate but that is to be expected
 08 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Still hitting the tar off of the ball
 09 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Everytime he makes contact the ball could go out of the park
5  10 Melian, Jackson   MLB   CF 39 R R
  The single biggest surprise over the first month of the season, hands down
 11 Gold, J.M.   A   SP 39 R R
  Just a few short weeks from returning to the mound and reclaiming his place as a top prospect
 12 Yeatman, Matt   A   MR 37 R R
  Has really matured since being drafted and is having a heck of an early season
 13 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  If Corey puts another couple weeks together like his last one (.391/.462/.826) he could find himself in Huntsville sooner than later
4  14 Mieses, Jose   A   SP 42 R R
  Remember last season at this time when he was on the fast track to Milwaukee?
1  15 Clark, D.J.   A   LF 40 L R
  Struggling pretty badly at the plate although he always seems to get clutch hits
3  17 Villanueva, Froilan   A   C 41 R R
  This kid can flat out hit - watch out Sean Burroughs
2  18 Scott, Bill   A   1B 40 R R
  Bill should be getting regular playing time in Huntsville and not starting every couple of days
1  19 Martinez, Luis   MLB   SP 40 L L
  I really don't know what you do with Luis at this point
1  20 Steitz, Jon   A   MR 39 R R
  Had his first good start in Beloit over the weekend but he needs to string a few together to make me a believer
 21 Johnson, Kade   A   C 41 R R
  Huntsville's catching situation begs for Kade to come to it
 22 Sanchez, Alex   MLB   CF 43 L L
  Fans will start rampaging if he keeps stealing time from Ochoa
 23 Deardorff, Jeff   A   LF 41 R R
  Please Jeff, please take a walk
3  24 Alfonzo, Elie   A   C 40 R R
  Probably should be getting more than a 50/50 split with Brian Foster behind the plate
 25 Oakes, Gerry   A   SP 37 R R
  Having just turned 20 on Monday, Gerry will be given every chance to succeed in Beloit this season
2  26 Childers, Matt   A   MR 41 R R
  Would someone please tell me why the Brewers are so enamored with this Childers?
6  27 Randolph, Jaisen   A   CF 41 S R
  One more centerfielder who is hitting well for the Brewers' system
 28 Richardson, Judd   A   SP 39 L R
  Has showed middling command of late
1  29 Parker, Matt   A   SP 41 R R
  Had a much better week and that is hopefully a sign of things to come
1  30 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Just kind of lackluster so far
2  31 Santana, Ralph   A   2B 38 S R
  Just kind of lackluster so far
6  32 Artman, Dane   A   SP 37 L L
  Got hit in the face by a ball in the dugout and will miss some time because of that
1  33 Soriano, Carlos   A   RF 41 R R
  Hint hint: High Desert needs another outfielder now that Hammond went on the DL
 34 Maysonet, Roberto   A   SP 40 R R
  If he only knew where the ball was going he would be dangerous
 35 Carrow, Tommy   A   CF 38 R R
  Played in one game the past week, no kidding
 36 Poe, Ryan   A   SP 42 R R
  Huntsville anxiously awaits the return of Poe
 37 Nielsen, Brian   A   MR 38 L L
  Old enough where he probably should be in High Desert by the end of the season
 38 Henderson, Eric   A   MR 40 L L
  This huge lefty will likely battle some inconsistancy early on but has the skills to still be a very decent pitcher
 39 Plasencia, Francisco   A   CF 35 L L
  I am already getting impatient for the short season leagues to start so this guy can play
3  40 Knox, Ryan   A   CF 42 R R
  Every day Ryan is stuck in High Desert the more ridiculous it gets
 41 Castillo, Geraldo   A   MR 37 R R
  Big control pitcher who is waiting for his shot in Beloit
 42 Cesar, Dionys   A   UT 43 L R
  Not quite as much a cult favorite as Marcos Scutaro but almost nearly as good
4  43 Scarborough, Steve   A   SS 41 R R
  Check out Steve's offensive numbers - pretty impressive continuation from last season
1  44 Gordon, Justin   A   MR 40 L L
  Justin is going to have to earn his way back up the Power 50 with more weeks like last one
5  45 Barnwell, Chris   A   IF 40 R R
  Finally breaking out of his slump
2  46 Hinton, Travis   AA   1B 39 L L
  One of the numerous glut of corner outfield/first base types throughout the system getting hurt by a lack of regular playing time
1  47 West, Todd   AAA   2B 40 R R
  I could mention it's been 2 weeks since Todd has had an extra base hit in the Coors Field of the Cal League but I won't
 48 Cordero, Victor   A   MR 41 R R
  Victor is counting the months until he gets out of the pitcher's hell known as High Desert
new  49 Pember, David   A   SP 41 S R
  Longtime #51 finally cracks the top 50
new  50 Ebert, Derrin   A   MR 43 R L
  Seems like he has been around for forever and a day but he is still only 25

Players removed this week: Derry Hammond... Mike Penney...
