Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 06/04/2006

  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 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Needs just 54 at-bats with Milwaukee to graduate off the Power 50, but with J.J. Hardy coming back in a week, will he ever get them? Hopefully this will be Corey's last go-around on the Power 50
2  02 Gallardo, Yovani   A   SP 33 R R
  Just pitching ridiculously well right now for Brevard... Yo seems to be the current heir apparent to the #1 spot on the Power 50
 03 Cruz, Nelson   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Can't argue with a 922 OPS, but his age and strikeout rate will probably keep him out of the #1 spot when the opportunity arises
2  04 Braun, Ryan   MLB   OF 36 R R
  Just about leads Brevard in OPS and leads Brevard in errors - neither is a surprise
2  05 Jackson, Zach   MLB   MR 36 L L
  Zach Jack is the next person to get his shot on the Milwaukee staff even though he doesn't yet seem ready to pitch with the Brewers - good luck, Zach
2  06 Inman, Will   MLB   SP 32 R R
  Will's shoulder is barking a little bit, but it is nothing to be concerned about... yet
2  07 Escobar, Alcides   MLB   SS 33 R R
  I don't want to jinx this, but Alcides has just 3 errors in 18 games played this year
2  08 Rogers, Mark   A   SP 33 R R
  Pitching generally better over his last 5-6 starts, Rogers has the WHIP under 2 for the first time in awhile
2  09 Salome, Angel   A   OF 33 R R
  Still killing the ball in West Virginia - all that's holding Angel back is his defense
3  10 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 38 L L
  Not to sound overly dramatic, but the next couple months could determine Dave's future with the Brewers
1  11 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  As it is his last option year, Dennis needs to take a keen interest in making sure he's around the plate, bad umpires or not
3  12 Fermaint, Charlie   A   CF 34 R R
  I was surprised to see Charlie assigned to Brevard to begin the year, a little surprised to see him hit so well from the beginning, so will the Brewers surprise me again and promote Charlie to Huntsville to give the Stars a boost?
4  13 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  If Manny stays healthy and pitches well, I'm guessing that the Brewers will give him around another 4-6 starts in Brevard before a return to Huntsville
4  14 Pascual, Rolando   A   RHP 30 R R
  One of the things I most look forward to about the start of short-season ball this year is the start of Pascual's career as a Brewer
1  15 Iribarren, Hernan   MLB   2B 35 L R
  Not only busted for a corked bat, but busted right in front of Reid Nichols - ouch
4  16 Dillard, Tim   A   MR 36 R R
  The reigning Minor League Pitcher of the Year has turned the sinkerball magic up a notch during the last month, cutting his ERA by about 1.50
2  17 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Second on the Huntsville team in walks, which is a good thing when you're only hitting .247
5  18 Gwynn Jr, Tony   MLB   OF 37 L R
  Hitting unbelievably well right now - eventually, it could make sense to have Gwynn rot on the bench instead of Hart
7  19 Villanueva, Carlos   MLB   MR 36 R R
  Brief cup of coffee turned out well for Carlos... The fight to get back to Milwaukee resumes in Huntsville, where he's in a good battle with Tim Dillard at the top of the rotation
4  20 Wahpepah, Josh   A   MR 35 R R
  After starting out the year red-hot, Wahpepah has had a number of weird, short outings recently - hopefully everything is OK with the arm
6  21 Rottino, Vinny   MLB   UT 39 R R
  Hitting pretty well for the Sounds, but the Brewers fixation on keeping 13 pitchers is squashing Vinny's immediate chances of joining the big club
1  22 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  What's worse? Being injured or being called out by Gord Ash in the press about your injury?
13  23 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
  Solid 723 OPS with the Stars despite not hitting for average... Lou is setting himself back on course to at least get a shot at a Milwaukee roster spot in the next few years
1  24 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 37 L R
  Demoted, and still not hitting - what happened?
7  25 Cain, Lorenzo   MLB   CF 33 R R
  Production has dropped off quite a bit since last we talked, but there's no need for panic
4  26 Mercedes, Roque   A   SP 33 R R
  Will Roque redeem himself after a subpar 2005? Will my fascination with him ever end?
4  27 Hinton, Robert   A   MR 35 R R
  Great peripherals, even if the ERA has been fluctuating... How about giving him a try in AA?
5  28 Hammond, Steve   MLB   SP 37 L L
  I am officially perplexed as to why Steve is not wearing a Huntsville jersey
9  29 Garrison, Steve   MLB   SP 33 L L
  Surprising call-up from Arizona has me pumped to see one of my favorite guys from last year's draft jump to A-ball as a 19-year-old
7  30 Brantley, Michael   MLB   OF 32 L L
  Hitting finally picking up, and Mike is still holding on to his pro career mark of more walks than strikeouts
3  31 Demaria, Chris   A   MR 39 R R
  I know it didn't look pretty during his run with Milwaukee, but Chris is actually a pretty good pitcher with a very good changeup
9  32 Holmberg, Kenny   A   2B 36 R R
  Still can't stay on the field, which may mean he'll be stuck in West Virginia all year
6  33 Romero, Jose   DSL   MR 22 R R
  Will be 20 when the season starts, so I hope he's pitching well enough right now to earn a spot with the Helena club
8  34 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Not losing any steam at the plate, Ozzie is second on the team in batting average
13  35 Gamel, Mat   A   1B 34 L R
  Can't field worth anything at the moment, but he sure can hit the ball a ton
8  36 Roberts, Kevin   MLB   MR 35 R R
  Up and down season continues... As a college guy, Kevin needs to get his problems getting A-ball guys out ironed out pretty soon
8  37 Heether, Adam   MLB   IF 37 R R
  Adam's offensive dropoff has been weird to watch, to say the least... He somehow needs to get it going again, and soon
5  38 Katin, Brendan   A   OF 36 R R
  Quietly having the best offensive season of anyone on the Brevard roster
7  39 Stetter, Mitch   A   MR 38 L L
  Still getting lots of short outings with Nashville, and still not pitching great... Will the Brewers ever let him stretch out a little bit?
new  40 Ford, Darren   MLB   CF 34 R R
  OBP finally coming up after figuring out walking is a nice way to get on base
new  41 Braddock, Zach   A   MR 32 L L
  Zach already has Tommy John surgery behind him, so at least the Brewers can concentrate on making sure his shoulder stays healthy
new  42 Thatcher, Joe   A   MR 38 L L
  Why, oh why, is Joe Thatcher still in West Virginia?
2  43 Parejo, Freddy   A   OF 35 R R
  Seems to play better when he's playing everyday in a consistent role - hopefully the Brewers can keep getting Freddy consistent ABs
6  44 Sollmann, Steve   A   UT 37 R R
  Deserves a mid-season promotion about as much as anyone else in the organization
new  45 Zumwalt, Alec   A   MR 38 R R
  With the Milwaukee bullpen in shambles, anyone from AAA could get a shot - if Alec keeps pitching well, there may well be room for him with the big club
new  46 Alonso, John   A   1B 33 R R
  With Grant Richardson likely done for the year, John becomes the Brewers best first base prospect not named Brad Nelson, and even that gap is closing
2  47 Peralta, Wily   A   SP 30 R R
  The Brewers actually raised some eyebrows with the amount of cash they signed Peralta for, which was high-round draft pick money - most people didn't think he was worth what he got, but we'll see
new  48 Ramlow, Mike   A   MR 33 L L
  Excellent community college season lead the Brewers to sign their 24th round pick from last year, a lanky 6'7 lefty
9  49 Crabbe, Callix   A   UT 36 S R
  I'm going to give Callix one more shot on the Power 50 to get that batting average back up to a respectable level
new  50 Barnwell, Chris   A   IF 40 R R
  How can you not like what Barny is doing for Nashville? He's taken over the everyday SS job, he's hitting well, and as always, he's a great guy in the clubhouse... He may or may not ever make it to the bigs, but he'll be around baseball as long as he wants to be

Players removed this week: Jose Capellan... Enrique Cruz... Dana Eveland... Ben Hendrickson... Wilfredo Laureano... Luis Pena... Vince Perkins...
