Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 09/01/2005

We're having some technical difficulties updating to the newest version of the Power 50, so when we get the kinks worked, the new Power 50 will be up. Thanks for your patience!    
  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
  917 OPS after his first 30 AB's - hey, not bad
 02 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  First base base, third base, left field, right field, center field, what's next? Rover?
 03 Eveland, Dana   MLB   SP 36 L L
  Won't be used in the starting rotation in Milwaukee this year to keep a cap on his innings
 04 Capellan, Jose   MLB   CL 38 R R
  So far, so good for Jose in his stint in the Brewers' bullpen
 05 Cruz, Nelson   MLB   RF 39 R R
  A .293 batting average, 32 doubles, 26 home runs, and 18 stolen bases for Nelson between AA and AAA - I think he's earned his promotion, Doug
2  06 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  Free from AA at last, Dennis pitched 5 good innings in his AAA debut, something he should have been doing a month and a half ago
1  07 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Hitting the ball much better when he's in the #2 hole in the lineup
1  08 Gallardo, Yovani   A   SP 33 R R
  Just not one bad thing one could say about Yo's season
2  09 Hendrickson, Ben   MLB   SP 38 R R
  Might not get called up after a rough ending to the year has seen his ERA climb about 5.00
 10 Braun, Ryan   MLB   OF 36 R R
  Promoted from West Virginia to Brevard in the middle of August, but was shut down soon thereafter with an elbow strain, though it is nothing serious
 11 Iribarren, Hernan   MLB   2B 35 L R
  In danger of not hitting .300 for the first time in his career
3  12 Inman, Will   MLB   SP 32 R R
  Inman has been so good so often for Helena he's essentially their ace going into the playoffs
1  13 Rogers, Mark   A   SP 33 R R
  Just have to scratch your head and wonder why Rogers can't string together any more than one decent outing in a row
1  14 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Manny could be moved to the pen or piggybacked in the rotation when he returns next year to give his shoulder a little less stress
1  15 Salome, Angel   A   OF 33 R R
  Batting average has just been about cut in half since Angel's promotion to West Virginia
 16 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Somewhat odd that Nelson hasn't been promoted back to Nashville with their need for bats at the moment
 17 Taubenheim, Ty   A   SP 37 R R
  Ty has tailed off dramatically at season's end, probably due to the greatly increased number of innings pitched
1  18 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Steve has almost officially made it through the entire season without a long-term injury - yay!
1  19 Wahpepah, Josh   A   MR 35 R R
  As alluded to in the last Power 50, Josh has been virtually shut down since his innings pitched passed 100
3  20 Cruz, Enrique   A   SS 38 R R
  An almost MVP-like season at the plate, an almost position-changing-like season in the field
1  21 Gwynn Jr, Tony   MLB   OF 37 L R
  For all the grief I give him, I will give TGJ credit for walking 73 times this year
3  22 Heether, Adam   MLB   IF 37 R R
  Adam is really giving the Brewers something to consider at third base other than Ryan Braun
4  23 Villanueva, Carlos   MLB   MR 36 R R
  Splendid with Brevard, but the going gets much tougher from here on out for pitchers of the non-hard-throwing variety
6  24 Mercedes, Roque   A   SP 33 R R
  Not a pretty year, but what's that line about caterpillars and butterflies?
4  25 Pena, Luis   A   CL 36 R R
  Kind of a "meh" season for Luis, who may have to repeat in Brevard for awhile next year
3  26 Dillard, Tim   A   MR 36 R R
  The most surprising statistic in the Brewers' minor leagues this year may well be Dillard's 180 innings pitched
3  27 Escobar, Alcides   MLB   SS 33 R R
  I don't care how good you could be defensively when 45 errors are within your grasp (although he probably won't quite catch that one, either)
 28 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Encouraging comments about Mike's recovery in the Fan Forum, which is something we've been waiting to read for awhile
1  29 Garrison, Steve   MLB   SP 33 L L
  Definately earned a promotion to Helena for next year, and with a good spring, could slip into West Virginia
1  30 Stetter, Mitch   A   MR 38 L L
  Likely will be called up in September because he has to be added to the 40-man roster in the offseason anyway
1  31 Fermaint, Charlie   A   CF 34 R R
  Cooled off considerably with West Virginia, but the experience will do him well for next season
6  32 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
  The Cap'n has officially been demoted to Sgt.
 33 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  We'll give him a pass this year with the bat, but the bat must come alive in 2006
3  34 Rottino, Vinny   MLB   UT 39 R R
  Promoted to AAA after a nice tear in his final few weeks with the Stars
6  35 Rasheed, Hasan   A   LF 35 L L
  If he keeps getting on base at a .400 pace, Hasan will be in Milwaukee in no time
2  36 Ford, Darren   MLB   CF 34 R R
  Tailed way off in over the past 3-4 weeks
7  37 Brantley, Michael   MLB   OF 32 L L
  Phenomenal plate discipline early on in Michael's career
4  38 Hinton, Robert   A   MR 35 R R
  Robert continues to immaculately fill the Hinton void that occured when Travis left
6  39 Hammond, Steve   MLB   SP 37 L L
  At the pace he's bring promoted, Steve might be in Milwaukee be later on this evening
new  40 Rodriguez, Guilder   A   IF 36 S R
  Many were surprised when Guilder was promoted to AA from West Virginia, and many more are surprised at the season he quietly put up with the Stars, including an OBP of almost .400
5  41 Housman, Jeff   A   MR 38 L L
  Just a really bad year, and taken off the 40-man roster to boot
4  42 Barnes, Justin   A   MR 37 R R
  Has started 2 games now for the Power, something I think he should be doing more of
4  43 Richardson, Grant   A   1B 36 R R
  Rock steady in the middle of the order most of the year
new  44 Cain, Lorenzo   MLB   CF 33 R R
  Lorenzo is center fielder #9 on the Power 50 and the freshly minted Arizona League MVP
2  45 Roberts, Kevin   MLB   MR 35 R R
  Has not fared as well with the Power as he did with the H-Brewers, but really, who has?
new  46 Stanczyk, Ben   A   MR 37 R R
  The Waukesha-born Stanczyk has been nothing short of stellar all season at the end of the bullpen for the Power
7  47 Woolard, Glenn   A   SP 38 R R
  It may be a wise career move for Glenn to ask the Brewers to put him in the bullpen next year
new  48 Chapman, Steve   A   1B 34 L L
  I'm think about starting a spinoff off of the Power 50 called The Centerfield 10, at the bottom of which would be Steve Chapman (although to be on the list at all is a great accomplishment)
2  49 Jimenez, Jose   A   3B 32 R R
  Promoted to the H-Brewers for their playoff run, Jose is off to a fine start in his minor league journey
1  50 Parillo, Brandon   A   MR 34 L L
  I hope the Brewers don't intend to keep Parillo in the bullpen
