Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 08/05/2005

  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 
1  01 Fielder, Prince   A   1B 35 L R
  No big competition for the #1 spot on the Power 50 this time around, nor will there be next time unless Robby Deevers really starts mashing
1  02 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  First #2 not named J.J., Prince, or Rickie in almost 2 years
3  03 Eveland, Dana   MLB   SP 36 L L
  "That kid's body resembles David Wells" - no it doesn't, shut up
1  04 Capellan, Jose   MLB   CL 38 R R
  Will be called up by the end of the season without a doubt in order to get him an early leg-up on being the Crew's 2006 set-up guy
4  05 Cruz, Nelson   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Good enough to move Corey Hart back to left field is good enough for me
2  06 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Krynzel is the third youngest guy on the AAA team (Hart and Fielder are younger), and is struggling a bit... I wish we had many more guys as talented as Dave and in AAA
 07 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Recently suspended for intentionally throwing at a batter; How about bringing him up the next time we play the Cubs?
2  08 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  Inexplicably still in AA... I don't get it either, folks
3  09 Gallardo, Yovani   A   SP 33 R R
  Has walked a few more guys than you'd like, but that's about the only negative thing you can say about Yo this year
6  10 Braun, Ryan   MLB   OF 36 R R
  Seven errors in his first 24 A-ball games, but as expected, Braun is hitting
4  11 Iribarren, Hernan   MLB   2B 35 L R
  Just named the best defensive second baseman in the Sally League, adding to the Hurricane's ever-growing awards list
1  12 Rogers, Mark   A   SP 33 R R
  Second finger blister of the year is an annoyance right now, but is something to watch down the road
2  13 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Shut down for the year with shoulder problems
3  14 Salome, Angel   A   OF 33 R R
  Really uneven defensively with Helena though his bat got him promoted to West Viriginia anyway
4  15 Inman, Will   MLB   SP 32 R R
  Except for one head-scratchingly bad outing where Will gave up 4 jacks in one inning, he's been remarkably good so far
2  16 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  After mashing AA pitching, Brad has fallen back into bad habits and isn't earning his way back to AAA
3  17 Taubenheim, Ty   A   SP 37 R R
  Ty just keeps rolling right along in AA and keeps getting better with each outing
3  18 Mercedes, Roque   A   SP 33 R R
  Finally, a break-through outing for young Roque, but I'll admit those stats don't look too pretty aside from the K's
4  19 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Moss has settled into a rather boring groove at the plate
4  20 Wahpepah, Josh   A   MR 35 R R
  Josh might be getting a bit tired - 110 IP with a month left in your first season of full season ball is a lot of work
1  21 Pena, Luis   A   CL 36 R R
  I wonder if the Brewers regret adding Pena to the 40-man roster now?
3  22 Gwynn Jr, Tony   MLB   OF 37 L R
  Becoming as streaky as Krynzel at the plate without Dave's upside
3  23 Cruz, Enrique   A   SS 38 R R
  Like Sarfate, another head-scratching non-promotion
3  24 Escobar, Alcides   MLB   SS 33 R R
  About where Billy Hall was defensively when he was playing in low-A ball
3  25 Heether, Adam   MLB   IF 37 R R
  It'll be interesting to see what the Brewers do with Adam because he and Braun will be on the level as soon as the beginning of next season
8  26 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
  As mediocre as he's been this year, if he can turn it around, Cap'n Lou still has no one blocking him on his path to the bigs
4  27 Villanueva, Carlos   MLB   MR 36 R R
  I get nervous about "crafty" A-ball pitchers
1  28 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Who will be more famous, Mike Jones the pitcher or Mike Jones the rapper?
3  29 Dillard, Tim   A   MR 36 R R
  I am very surprised the Brewers haven't moved Dillard out of the rotation or promoted him to the AA bullpen because he's had way more innings that he has had in the past
8  30 Garrison, Steve   MLB   SP 33 L L
  My favorite player from the '05 draft is off to an excellent start with the Baby Brewers
5  31 Stetter, Mitch   A   MR 38 L L
  Pitching well enough to have earned a September call-up
9  32 Fermaint, Charlie   A   CF 34 R R
  Destroying baseballs since the beginning of the season, Charlie might be making a case for being fast-tracked a little bit
 33 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  May need to repeat AA at the start of 2006, but Callix should be in AAA, and doing well there, by this time next year
1  34 Ford, Darren   MLB   CF 34 R R
  Cooled off after a hot start, Darren will go back to playing everyday due to Fermaint's promotion
5  35 Anderson, Ryan   A   SP 40 L L
  I will have little patience for Ryan's left arm - if he's injured for much longer, he's off the Power 50
2  36 Housman, Jeff   A   MR 38 L L
  See Carlos Villanueva's comment, and Housman is the reason for why I worry about his future
 37 Rottino, Vinny   MLB   UT 39 R R
  Vinny may have to work more on his defense than his bat from this point on - catching could have been a direct ticket to the bigs, but being a utility player is another matter
2  38 Barnes, Justin   A   MR 37 R R
  Welcome to the Ty Taubenheim of '06
3  39 Richardson, Grant   A   1B 36 R R
  Steady and consistent with the Power, it looks like we have another Travis Hinton on our hands
1  40 Woolard, Glenn   A   SP 38 R R
  Has gone from the cusp of AAA to the cusp of being with another team next year
4  41 Rasheed, Hasan   A   LF 35 L L
  Hasan has cut down on the strikeouts quite a bit, and that's a good sign for a slap hitter
5  42 Hinton, Robert   A   MR 35 R R
  If Hinton keeps striking guys out at this pace, he'll quickly turn himself into a bona fide relief prospect
5  43 Roberts, Kevin   MLB   MR 35 R R
  Dominated Rookie-ball hitters, so now the future relief ace is taking his show to West Viriginia
new  44 Brantley, Michael   MLB   OF 32 L L
  Mickey's son has shown impressive plate discipline in his Arizona League stint, striking out only 8 times in 100 AB's in Maryvale
new  45 Hammond, Steve   MLB   SP 37 L L
  The Brewers seem intent on fast-tracking the college lefty, though it isn't clear whether they want him as a starter or a reliever
2  46 Anderson, Drew   A   OF 38 L R
  In addition to the lack of power, strikeouts have been piling up
new  47 Jimenez, Jose   A   3B 32 R R
  This baby Brewer is punishing the ball about as well as you can in the AZL and should be someone to look for in the coming years
2  48 Periard, Alex   A   SP 32 L R
  Pitching to contact, just getting contacted pretty hard right now
new  49 Parillo, Brandon   A   MR 34 L L
  Besides some off-the-field shenanigans, Brandon has been steller in his rookie league experience
new  50 Katin, Brendan   A   OF 36 R R
  Big corner outfielder is about to turn into the new, more highly powered, Drew Anderson

Players removed this week: Josh Baker... Kennard Bibbs... Jorge De La Rosa... Jerome Gamble... Rickie Weeks...
