Toby's Power 50
  Power 50 Notes
last updated: 07/20/2006

  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 
1  01 Gallardo, Yovani   A   SP 33 R R
  For Yo, the #1 spot on the Power 50 was about as inevitable as another one of his dominant starts... Gallardo really doesn't have any major things he needs to work on before he gets to the bigs - as long as he stays healthy (fingers crossed), it is probably we'll see him towards the end of next year with the big club
1  02 Hart, Corey   A   OF 37 R R
  Nothing against you Corey, but could you please get off of my Power 50? (You need 21 more ABs)
 03 Cruz, Nelson   MLB   RF 39 R R
  Yet more of the same for Nelson, who'll be within range of 30 doubles and 30 jacks at the end of the year
 04 Braun, Ryan   MLB   OF 35 R R
  Has picked up the pace nicely in AA after scuffling around directly after his promotion... Still needs defensive work
1  05 Inman, Will   MLB   SP 32 R R
  Seven, count 'em, seven earned runs allowed in 56 innings pitched this year - remarkable
1  06 Jackson, Zach   MLB   MR 36 L L
  Pitched alright in his seven-start callup to Milwaukee, but it is clear Zach Jack needs to work on his breaking stuff before taking anohter shot at it
2  07 Salome, Angel   A   OF 33 R R
  Defense has been better this year and the bat has been as solid as ever - can't ask for much more out of the kid
 08 Rogers, Mark   A   SP 33 R R
  Just placed on the DL with a hopefully insignificant shoulder problem... Has been up and down all year, as usual
new  09 Jeffress, Jeremy   A   MR 32 R R
  A number one pick, a high school right-handed pitcher, a big fastball, a great athelete, an inconsistent but potentially plus slider - where have I heard this before?
2  10 Fermaint, Charlie   A   CF 34 R R
  Once Charlie figures out how to hit breaking balls, he'll be a force to be reckoned with
8  11 Villanueva, Carlos   MLB   MR 35 R R
  Non-descript AA campaign turned into a pretty nice little 3-start stint in Milwaukee and Carlos looks like he has what it takes to get back to Milwaukee - he really impressed me
5  12 Escobar, Alcides   MLB   SS 32 R R
  Wake me up when Alcides' OBP gets back over .300... At least the defense is getting a lot more consistent
2  13 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
  Being converted into a reliever for the time being in Nashville, and honestly, that'll be his ticket to the big leagues for the time being
1  14 Iribarren, Hernan   MLB   2B 35 L R
  Hernan's been playing much better since his corked bat incident - turns out cork don't help no Hurricane
2  15 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  Vintage Manny on the mound until he was pulled from his last start after two innings... can only hope it is nothing serious
new  16 Gillespie, Cole   MLB   LF 35 R R
  3rd-rounder is a prime candidate to get fast-tracked... Cole has solid tools across the board, but will any develop into something more so he can make an impact at the big-league level some day?
3  17 Pascual, Rolando   A   RHP 30 R R
  It might be better if you just don't look at the stats on this one for awhile and just about how good Rolando *could be*
2  18 Dillard, Tim   A   MR 36 R R
  Probably the least-exciting prospect in the system because all Tim does is pitch well with decent stuff - nothing spectacular, just a good baseball player
1  19 Gwynn Jr, Tony   MLB   OF 37 L R
  Congrats to Tony on his first big league promotion and hit
3  20 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  Has kept the average up in the respectable range recently and has continued to show flashes of good power
11  21 Krynzel, Dave   MLB   CF 37 L L
  Has twice the tools of Gwynn or Moss, but just can't put it together for the Brewers - I have a feeling Dave will be with a different organization come next year
new  22 Brewer, Brent   A   SS 31 R R
  A terrific name for a second rounder; Won't stick in the infield for very long and has the tools to play in the outfield anyway
2  23 Cain, Lorenzo   MLB   CF 33 R R
  Doing a little bit of everything right this year... Lorenzo is well on his way towards making himself a legit corner OF prospect
4  24 Hammond, Steve   MLB   SP 37 L L
  Has been very, very good since taking his rightful place in the Stars' rotation a few weeks ago
4  25 Rottino, Vinny   MLB   UT 39 R R
  I'm still confused as to why the Brewers haven't hung with Vinny more behind the plate - his value would increase exponentially if he could develop into even an average catcher
4  26 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Back off the DL as of this writing and I can only hope that the case will be the same next time we talk
2  27 Garrison, Steve   MLB   SP 33 L L
  Seemingly getting better with each start and has put himself at least a year ahead of most high school pitchers drafted in his class
5  28 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
  If Lou can't get the batting average up by the end of the year, it'll be interesting to see if the Brewers will move him up next year anyway - they would really like to have someone in house to have a chance to replace Damien Miller
9  29 Wahpepah, Josh   A   MR 35 R R
  Has been very inconsistent lately, often leaving before the fifth and walking a bad number of guys in those starts... Josh doesn't have the electric stuff to get away with that, so hopefully it is a passing thing
3  30 Hinton, Robert   A   MR 35 R R
  After a brief ERA hiccup, Rob is back on track and striking out legions of opposing hitters in a single toss
7  31 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 36 L R
  .229/.337/.347 in AA - your guess is as good as mine as to why
2  32 Brantley, Michael   MLB   OF 32 L L
  After the season the Brewers need to hook Mike up with a GNC credit card and tell him to go to town - even he could even develop average power he'd be a stud at the plate
new  33 Bouchie, Andy   A   C 34 R R
  What is this? A third catching prospect on the Power 50?
8  34 Mercedes, Roque   A   SP 33 R R
  Pitched well enough in extended spring training to get to Helena but has been exactly "effective" there
 35 Gamel, Mat   A   1B 34 L R
  Eventually either one or both of either Braun or Gamel will be moved off of third and right now, if just one of them were to be moved, it would be Mat
5  36 Demaria, Chris   A   MR 39 R R
  May yet get another shot this year as the Brewers bullpen continues to shoot the team in the foot
4  37 Romero, Jose   DSL   MR 21 R R
  Jose K. has been mowing 'em down in his stateside debut this year, thankfully helping my wild guess to be accurate
6  38 Holmberg, Kenny   A   2B 36 R R
  Batting average has taken a bit of a nosedive since his return from the DL - this must be sort of a dissapointing year for Kenny, as I'm sure he had hoped to be in Brevard by now
1  39 Katin, Brendan   A   OF 36 R R
  Brendan continues to be solid and carry a big stick in the middle of the Brevard batting order
6  40 Chavez, Ozzie   A   IF 36 S R
  Promoted to Nashville after Barnwell was promoted to Milwaukee, and hasn't fared particularly well while there
new  41 Crew, Ryan   A   UT 36 R R
  Ryan is quickly developing into a nice little utility prospect and has a perfect name to match
new  42 Anundsen, Evan   A   SP 31 R R
  Nice potential fastball and curve combo for the inexperienced fourth round pick
new  43 Hill, Shane   A   MR 31 R R
  My Steve Garrison of this draft - the lanky righty has a pretty delivery and the makings of a very nice looking curve
8  44 Roberts, Kevin   MLB   MR 35 R R
  Seems to pitch a lot better when coming out of the pen - maybe the Brewers should just stick with that idea for awhile
new  45 Anderson, Drew   A   OF 38 L R
  Quietly putting together another solid campaign, but a campaign where no one thing sticks out
6  46 Ford, Darren   MLB   CF 34 R R
  On pace for around 160 K's and 60 stolen bases, which is Darren's version of "all or nothing"
8  47 Stetter, Mitch   A   MR 38 L L
  Might challenge Brian Shouse next spring if the two are both still around Brewers camp
new  48 Errecart, Chris   A   1B 34 R L
  Intriguing college-drafted power prospect who is already seeing a lot of time at first base in Helena
new  49 Parillo, Brandon   A   MR 34 L L
  The lefty ground-ball machine is back to pitching well in Helena after getting lit up early this year in West Virginia
new  50 Ramirez, Luis   A   SP 31 L L
  World, meet Luis Ramirez, an 18 year old 6'3, 170 pound dominator of rookie-ball hitters

Players removed this week: John Alonso... Chris Barnwell... Zach Braddock... Callix Crabbe... Adam Heether... Freddy Parejo... Wily Peralta... Mike Ramlow... Steve Sollmann... Joe Thatcher... Alec Zumwalt...
