Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 07/31/2004

  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 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  No one would have bet on Prince having the same number of stolen bases as double play ground outs (nine apiece)
 02 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  If you're desperate for some Hardy action, check out his cousin John, playing for Batavia in the Phillies' organization
 03 Weeks, Rickie   A   2B 37 R R
  A lot of people would be a lot less worried about Rickie is he weren't stuck with a batting average in the .250-.260 range
 04 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Drawing quite a few walks recently - trying to appease the BB:AB ratio gods?
 05 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Getting a little bit better every outing - while you'd like for a young pitcher to dominate out of the gate, good progress is all you can really ask for
 06 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  I hope that Brad can finish the season strong instead of continuing the slow slide he's been on for the better part of two months now
 07 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  When Manny gets back from another stint on the DL within a few weeks, he's going to finish the season with Huntsville
 08 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
  Cap'n Lou is back in the middle of the Beloit lineup - will he be enough to push them into the playoffs?
 09 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  This week's version of streaKrynzel finds his OBP back down 38 points from where it was last time we talked
 10 Rogers, Mark   A   SP 34 R R
  So far, so good for the young righty - might see Helena if they make the playoffs
 11 De La Rosa, Jorge   MLB   MR 38 L L
  DLR continues to get hotter with each start, and with Milwaukee failing in the playoff race, we might yet see Jorge in Milwaukee this season
1  12 Eveland, Dana   MLB   SP 36 L L
  I hope that the Brewers find a good advanced-A affiliate so that they can send guys like Dana there once they get done with Beloit
1  13 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  A good reason not to trade Dan Kolb is so that Mike is able to watch and learn from one of the best closers out there right now
2  14 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  How about giving Mike a year off from pitching to get his arm and shoulder squared away?
1  15 Bennett, Jeff   A   MR 39 R R
  For the past month, Jeff has been trying to beat out ML hitters by throwing everything hard right through the zone, and it hasn't been working; good luck to Jeff, as this will be his last Power 50 week, barring injury or lack of work
1  16 Gallardo, Yovani   A   SP 33 R R
  You wish guys like Yo could pitch every day so you could their progress, but the Brewers are doing the right thing by holding them back early in their careers
2  17 Ford, Matt   A   MR 38 S L
  Matt may not have done enough this season to get himself out of AA
 18 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  It doesn't make any sense to demote him now, but it's becoming more and more clear that jumping Dennis from Beloit to Huntsville was a mistake
2  19 Housman, Jeff   A   MR 38 L L
  Not really sure what more the Brewers want Jeff to accomplish at AA
1  20 Gwynn Jr, Tony   MLB   OF 37 L R
  Is Junior prepared to go through the same thing next year when the Brewers promote him to AAA for no real good reason?
1  21 Moss, Steve   A   CF 36 R R
  Steve continues to hit the tar out of the ball, and sees his batting average climb farther and farther out of the gutter
2  22 Liriano, Pedro   A   SP 39 R R
  Has been getting spanked pretty regularly on the mound for about a month now
 23 Baker, Josh   A   MR 37 R R
  Seems to have turned it around in his last two appearences
 24 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Innings have been few and far between for Ben, so it looks like it'll be Arizona for the rest of the summer
1  25 Woolard, Glenn   A   SP 38 R R
  Glenn has just about crossed the line form borderline prospect to Major League prospect
2  26 Wahpepah, Josh   A   MR 35 R R
  Still only one home run allowed in 30 Pioneer League innings - very impressive
2  27 Saenz, Chris   A   SP 38 R R
  Young enough to start out in AA next season and still be on a good timeline for the bigs, despite the injury
2  28 Harper, Jesse   A   SP 39 R R
  More proof that it is possible to pitch well as a Maverick, Jesse was just promoted to Huntsville
2  29 Bruso, Greg   A   SP 39 R R
  Getting hammered pretty badly with the Mavs, not making the case for quickly getting promoted back to Huntsville like we all hoped
2  30 Wooley, Robbie   A   SP 35 R R
  Second in the Pioneer League in ERA, and still only one start
2  31 Vanden Berg, John   A   C 39 R R
  Has seen the batting average drop about 20 points during a slump at the plate
1  32 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  Finishing the season with an ERA below 6.00 would be wonderful
1  33 Gemoll, Brandon   A   1B 39 L L
  Yes, Brandon's BA is now 16 points higher than Jeff Liefer's
1  34 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  It's interesting that the Brewers haven't played Callix anywhere besides second base this season, because Callix isn't going to make it to bigs as a second baseman as long as Weeks is still playing there
 35 Fermaint, Charlie   A   CF 34 R R
  This is beginning to look like an acute case of Guerrero syndrome developing in Charlie - stop swinging at everything!
 36 Hinton, Travis   AA   1B 39 L L
  The Brewers seem content to let Travis finish the season off in High Desert, and hope that he'll be able to pick the pace back up in Huntsville next year
5  37 Barnes, Justin   A   MR 37 R R
  Must be very tempting to promote Justin up to Beloit to see if he can keep up the strikeout rate
1  38 Hawk, Tommy   A   SP 34 R R
  About to call this season a mulligan
1  39 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  It's going to be an interesting battle to watch next spring between Ozzie and Enrique Cruz for the Huntsville shortstop spot
7  40 Iribarren, Hernan   MLB   2B 35 L R
  Does anyone realize how hard it is to keep up a .447 average through 120+ AB and still find time to walk 15 times?
2  41 Novinsky, John   A   MR 40 R R
  Yet another Stars pitcher who has more than earned a promotion to Indianapolis
6  42 Stetter, Mitch   A   MR 39 L L
  Just promoted to High Desert after ripping through Midwest League hitters
2  43 Slack, Nick   A   CL 37 R R
  As long as Nick hasn't let this HD experience get him down, he should have a huge season when he's promoted to Huntsville
5  44 Salome, Angel   A   OF 33 R R
  Has anyone actually seen Salome? Does he really exist?
5  45 Opdyke, Bryan   A   C 35 L R
  Walking is great, but you also have to be able to hit and play defense
 46 Taubenheim, Ty   A   SP 37 R R
  Has really been hot for the past few weeks, striking out just about every other batter he faces
2  47 Lewis, Will   A   UT 38 R R
  Beloit manager Don Money had the epiphany of putting Will at DH for a few games when Rodriguez started at second
4  48 Rottino, Vinny   MLB   UT 39 R R
  I was going to take Vinny off, but then he was hitting about .300 again, so I couldn't
1  49 Mannon, Adam   A   RF 36 R R
  Walks are starting to pile up, though Adam can't seem to consistently take walks and consistently get hits at the same time
5  50 Heether, Adam   MLB   IF 38 R R
  Still showing enough power and walking skill to hold off those Helena guys from his Power 50 spot
