  Power 50 Notes

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
  Considering his pace from earlier in the season, it'll be amazing if Prince manages not to strike out 100 times this year
 02 Weeks, Rickie   A   2B 37 R R
  Good to see that the Brewers won't be playing him in Milwaukee this year, but rather in the AFL, where he may actually learn something
 03 Hardy, J.J.   MLB   SS 37 R R
  Reports are that J.J. will be ready for spring training with time to spare
 04 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Shoulder getting a little better, which could guarantee him a promotion to Milwaukee after the AAA season is over
 05 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Back to Milwaukee next week because of the Capuano injury
 06 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 36 L R
  Like Rickie and Prince, has been much improved on defense this year
 07 Parra, Manny   A   MR 36 L L
  An inauspicious 1 inning, 2 earned run debut with the Stars, but it's nice just to see him pitch in AA
2  08 De La Rosa, Jorge   MLB   MR 38 L L
  Should get recalled to Milwaukee after the AAA season because he's been brilliant lately for the Indians
1  09 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
  Was fined and suspended for violating team curfew along with a few other teammates in an incident at 4 a.m. in Peoria that lead to Snapper pitcher Greg Kloosterman being stabbed... not smart, Lou
1  10 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 37 L L
  Going into the season, I gave Dave almost no shot at becoming the Brewers' CF as long as Podsednik was in the organization, but Dave's decent season combined with Po's bad season have seen the odds shift more in Krynzel's favor
 11 Eveland, Dana   MLB   SP 35 L L
  Not missing a step in the transition from Beloit to Huntsville
 12 Rogers, Mark   A   SP 33 R R
  May get bumped up to Helena to get one more start to cap off a pretty good pro debut
 13 Adams, Mike   MLB   CL 41 R R
  8.38 ERA in August is putting a damper on an otherwise fine rookie campaign
 14 Gallardo, Yovani   A   SP 33 R R
  Surprise promotion to Beloit didn't work out too well for Yo, but making it to Beloit in your first year as a pro is an accomplishment in itself
 15 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Won't really know where Mike stands until next spring, so here's to Mike's shoulder and to a long and healthy future
 16 Housman, Jeff   A   MR 38 L L
  One decent start and two bad starts for the Indians... just allowing too many baserunners
 17 Ford, Matt   A   MR 38 S L
  Removed from the 40-man roster, and then proceeded to have his best outing of the season
3  18 Woolard, Glenn   A   SP 38 R R
  Has made one of biggest jumps in terms of progress of any Brewer pitcher this season
1  19 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  That pesky control is still the thing keeping Dennis down
2  20 Liriano, Pedro   A   SP 39 R R
  Earned himself a promotion to Milwaukee after pitching very well out of the bullpen in AAA
2  21 Gwynn Jr, Tony   MLB   OF 37 L R
  The season is ending just as it began - a whole lot of "blah"
1  22 Baker, Josh   A   MR 37 R R
  The Brewers probably were hoping that Baker would have done a little better for himself in Helena so skipping Beloit would have been an option, but it looks like A-ball for Josh next season
3  23 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Steve never was able to get his season turned all the way around, and may be looking at yet another stint in Beloit
3  24 Wooley, Robbie   A   SP 34 R R
  Very effective for the H-Brewers, and seems to pitch better when he's pitching to contact rather than trying to strike opposing batters out
1  25 Wahpepah, Josh   A   MR 35 R R
  Hasn't pitched a whole lot at the end of the season... hopefully it isn't an injury related to those funky mechanics
1  26 Harper, Jesse   A   SP 38 R R
  Not officially on the AFL roster yet, but the Brewers won't rush his injury recovery to get him there
1  27 Diggins, Ben   A   MR 40 R R
  Seems like this is a broken record, but Ben will look towards spring training for a return to the mound
1  28 Vanden Berg, John   A   C 39 R R
  After sitting on the bench for half of the High Desert games, should be well rested for next season
4  29 Iribarren, Hernan   MLB   2B 35 L R
  The Hurricane was promoted to Beloit and has kept hitting (and kept hitting for some power), though the walk totals have come down
 30 Bruso, Greg   A   SP 39 R R
  Like Ballouli, Bruso has been giving up a lot of hits as a Maverick, but it isn't a sign that he's a bad pitcher, just that he's pitching in a horrible pitching environment
3  31 Saenz, Chris   A   SP 38 R R
  If/when Chris makes it back to the bigs in a few years, what percentage of Milwaukee fans will remember him from his 2004 start?
1  32 Ballouli, Khalid   A   SP 39 R R
  Only another start or two, and it's all over, Khalid
1  33 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  Quietly leading the charge of second basemen not named Rickie Weeks to Milwaukee
1  34 Hinton, Travis   AA   1B 38 L L
  Has done all that has been asked of him in High Desert (except maybe defnsively), but it is still hard to see where he fits in long-term with the Brewers
3  35 Gemoll, Brandon   A   1B 39 L L
  Needs to get that K:BB ratio back in order next season
 36 Fermaint, Charlie   A   CF 34 R R
  May have had the best game of any Brewer farmhand this season with a 2 HR, 8 RBI effort last week
1  37 Novinsky, John   A   MR 40 R R
  If Harper doesn't go to the Arizona Fall League, the honor will be passed to John, who deserves it
1  38 Barnes, Justin   A   MR 37 R R
  Also involved in the Peoria stabbing incident, and that's just after being with the Snapper for a few weeks... not good
 39 Hawk, Tommy   A   SP 34 R R
  Better lately, though Tommy faces un uphill climb to make an A-ball team out of spring next year
 40 Slack, Nick   A   CL 36 R R
  I heaped praise on Nick two weeks ago, and then he goes and has two of his worst weeks of the season
2  41 Salome, Angel   A   OF 33 R R
  Opposing baserunners had been showing Salome some respect earlier, though they are starting to run successfully against him now
1  42 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Will win the award for "System Enigma" hands down
1  43 Stetter, Mitch   A   MR 38 L L
  Whatever it was that was working in Beloit just isn't working now
1  44 Taubenheim, Ty   A   SP 36 R R
  Hulking Beloit closer probably would have been promoted to High Desert already if the Snappers would not have been in the playoff race
3  45 Cruz, Enrique   A   SS 37 R R
  We've seen a very good and a very bad Enrique Cruz this year... which one will show up long-term?
1  46 Rottino, Vinny   MLB   UT 39 R R
  Now leads all of organized baseball with RBI's (119), including MLB leader Miguel Tejada (who has 118)... almost a shoe-in for Huntsville next year
3  47 Lewis, Will   A   UT 38 R R
  Hamstring problems have benched Lewis and getting back onto the field with Iribarren on the team may be a difficult task
1  48 Costello, Ryan   A   SP 40 R L
  We've seen a pitcher come out of nowhere to have AA success before, so the big test will be next season, and few pitchers pass that test
1  49 Richardson, Grant   A   1B 36 R R
  Already has as many home runs with Beloit as he had in more than twice the number of games with Helena
new  50 Durost, Kenny   A   MR 38 R R
  Left the team for unknown reasons midway into the season, came back, and has enjoyed good success on the mound for the Snappers
