In this week's edition of the TigsTown Power Rankings a couple of recently-promoted players slipped down the rankings a little bit, with one dropping out of the top 10 all together. One Lakeland player took a spot in the top 10 over another while a pitcher took the top spot this week.

1. LHP Jose Alvarez
Team W/L ERA SO BB WHIP
ANALYSIS: Jose Alvarez had one start for Toledo this week but it was enough to put him at the top of this list. The lefty went seven innings and struck out 11 Rochester batters while giving up two earned runs. The runs could've been more costly but the Mud Hens put up 12 runs on Rochester pitching. Alvarez is in the top five in the International League with most of the major pitching stats and has one of the best strikeout-to-walk ratios in all of Triple-A. If he continues to pitch this well Alvarez could get the call-up to come out of the bullpen if a reliever gets injured in Detroit.
