  Power 50
+/- Rank  Name  Level  Pos  Age 
1  01 Braun, Ryan   MLB   OF 36 R R
  1 error and a .366 batting average. Ready? Yes, yes he is.
1  02 Gallardo, Yovani   A   SP 33 R R
  Dethroned! Hitters are easier to project than pitcher---No hard feelings, though, you
 03 Inman, Will   MLB   SP 32 R R
 04 Salome, Angel   A   OF 33 R R
  Angel finally took the field this week and everyone
 05 Gillespie, Cole   MLB   LF 35 R R
2  06 Parra, Manny   A   MR 37 L L
  A dominant Parra would look great in the Milwaukee pen during the playoff run
6  07 Cain, Lorenzo   MLB   CF 33 R R
  Cold since the end of last season, but still has the same 5 tool potential that helped him dominate the Sally league, so no reason to get worried yet.
1  08 Jeffress, Jeremy   A   MR 32 R R
  Just because Mike Jones and Mark Rogers got hurt, doesn
10  09 Gwynn Jr, Tony   MLB   OF 37 L R
  TGJ is off to a fantastic start in the Majors, but still showing the lack of power that worries many Brewer fans.
1  10 Fermaint, Charlie   A   CF 34 R R
  Brevard is murderous on hitters, and it really wasn
5  11 Jackson, Zach   MLB   MR 36 L L
  K rate up, walk rate down. Both good signs that Zach Jack intends to have a role with the big club this year.
4  12 Brewer, Brent   A   SS 31 R R
1  13 Sarfate, Dennis   MLB   MR 38 R R
1  14 Escobar, Alcides   MLB   SS 32 R R
  Recorded his first extra base hit a day ago---not walking or striking out either. Alcides has learned to slap the ball around, but isn
2  15 Dillard, Tim   A   MR 36 R R
  Not striking out anyone or limiting base runners can lead to bad things. Tim
9  16 Hinton, Robert   A   MR 35 R R
  Currently holding opponents to a .114 batting average---has the potential to be an excellent MLB reliever.
3  17 Rottino, Vinny   MLB   UT 39 R R
4  18 Iribarren, Hernan   MLB   2B 35 L R
  Hernan started off very cold last season as well, but picked it up once he stopped using a corked bat.
2  19 Gamel, Mat   A   1B 34 L R
7  20 Thatcher, Joe   A   MR 38 L L
11  21 Rogers, Mark   A   SP 33 R R
11  22 Ford, Darren   MLB   CF 34 R R
  Batting .362, but striking out just as much as last year.
5  23 Hammond, Steve   MLB   SP 37 L L
  Proved that he
1  24 Garrison, Steve   MLB   SP 33 L L
  Perhaps the least heralded pitching prospect the Brewers have, Steve continues to impress in BC.
14  25 Errecart, Chris   A   1B 34 R L
  The fact that Chris is batting .372 in Space Coast stadium stands as a testament to how remarkable the last month has been.
2  26 Brantley, Michael   MLB   OF 32 L L
  Mike Brantley must have been on the treadmill all winter, because he did not show this kind of speed last season.
16  27 Perez, Yohannis   A   SS 37 R R
new  28 Braddock, Zach   A   MR 32 L L
13  29 Chapman, Steve   A   1B 34 L L
  After three years in rookie ball, Steve is finally in A ball (ignore those 17 ab
5  30 Palmisano, Lou   A   C 37 R R
5  31 Anderson, Drew   A   OF 38 L R
13  32 Ramirez, Luis   A   SP 31 L L
  Turns 19 tomorrow, which makes his success even more impressive.
4  33 Anundsen, Evan   A   SP 31 R R
  High expectations come with high picks, so Evan will be watched closely when the season kicks off in the summer.
 34 Seidel, R.J.   A   MR 32 R R
  Seidel has plenty of talent to quickly rise up the list.
13  35 Pascual, Rolando   A   RHP 30 R R
  Sure would like to see more success this year from the giant righty, but patience is key with incredibly young pitchers.
7  36 Moss, Steve   A   CF 35 R R
  If Steve has finally put it together, then several long time followers will probably die from joy.
1  37 Nelson, Brad   A   1B 36 L R
  Brad will have to be re-added to the 40 man at seasons end to remain with the organization, so this really is his last chance to prove himself.
3  38 Katin, Brendan   A   OF 36 R R
  Other than his batting average, Brendan
8  39 Jones, Mike   A   MR 36 R R
  Hey, a healthy Mike Jones has been the long term goal, so we shouldn
10  40 Bray, Steve   A   MR 38 R R
  Steve was crazy good last year, but at 26 he
13  41 Bell, Michael   A   2B 34 R R
  Middle infielders with power are a rare commodity, and Mike has the potential to be a good utility man in the majors.
4  42 Bouchie, Andy   A   C 34 R R
  Andy showed great plate discipline in Helena last year, a quality that seems pretty rare in catchers.
new  43 Periard, Alex   A   SP 32 L R
new  44 Salas, Marino   MLB   CL 38 R R
  Newcomer Salas pitcher well in the Eastern league last year and hasn
1  45 Zumwalt, Alec   A   MR 38 R R
  It seems like Alec
4  46 Lluberes, Rafael   A   MR 35 L L
  Rafael doesn
4  47 Wahpepah, Josh   A   MR 35 R R
  Wahpepah seemed to run out of steam at about 100 innings the last couple of years, so a permanent move to the pen should help him succeed.
new  48 Sollmann, Steve   A   UT 37 R R
  Much like Jason Belcher in the past, Steve just keeps hitting and moving up, hoping that his bat can make up for the fact that he plays offense heavy positions.
 49 Welch, David   A   SP 36 L L
  David Welch is on fire in BC, and pitched great in WV last year, so could rise quickly with continued success.
18  50 Mercedes, Roque   A   SP 33 R R

Players removed this week: Callix Crabbe... Ryan Crew... Fredy De La Cruz... Brandon Parillo...
