TigsTown Power Rankings (6/10)

Which Tigers minor leaguers are doing the best? The TigsTown Power Rankings let you know which players are performing well in the farm system. Two Toledo teammates battle for the top spot while a few players pitch their way on to the list for the first time.

In this week's edition of the TigsTown Power Rankings a Toledo hitter makes a big case to be placed at the top spot on the list over a teammate who has held the spot for weeks.

ANALYSIS: Jordan Lennerton stays in the top spot this week but it was a narrow finish as the first baseman didn't have an overly impressive week. He did manage to get on base frequently and drive in a few runs, but previous laurels are the prevailing reason Lennerton remains number one.

ANALYSIS: Nick Castellanos made a huge jump this week, moving up four spots to the number two slot on this list. Castellanos had a tremendous week, pounding three more home runs and driving in six runs over the last seven days. He's reached in his last 10 games and is now the number one contender for the top spot.

ANALYSIS: After moving up a few spots over the past two weeks Devon Travis fell a spot this week. Although he has still been hitting the ball consistently Travis hasn't done much in the way of driving in runs. He did go 5-for-13 against Lansing over a four game series but only drove in one run in the stretch.

ANALYSIS: Hernan Perez continues to jump up the list with strong performances at the plate, moving up three spots this week. While Perez hasn't done much in the way of generating RBIs he has hit the ball consistently well as of late, tallying at least one hit in his last seven games.

ANALYSIS: Bruce Rondon struggled a bit over the last week, dropping him a few spots to number five on this week's list. The righty struggled in his appearance against Columbus last week, giving up an earned run and walking four hitters over ? innings.

ANALYSIS: Matt Hoffman is making his debut in the Power Rankings this week at the sixth spot and has been a pretty solid reliever for Toledo so far. Hoffman only had two outings last week but made the most of both of them, earning a win and pitching two scoreless innings.

ANALYSIS: Harold Castro moves up a few spots this week mostly because of the momentum he's created over the past few days. Castro has driven in four runs in his last two games, which are also the only two games he played in this week.

ANALYSIS: Kyle Ryan is debuting on this list in the eighth spot after a very strong outing last week against Tampa. Ryan has been the workhorse for the Flying Tigers so far this season but has shown some inconsistency in his starts. His walks are starting to trend downward in each start, a good sign that Ryan is working on improving his command.

ANALYSIS: Kyle Lobstein fell a spot this week after taking a tough loss against New Hampshire in which the entire team struggled. Lobstein did a solid job of striking out hitters in that game but also allowed too many walks.

ANALYSIS: Warwick Saupold took the biggest drop of the week, falling five spots to the tenth and final spot on this list. Saupold struggled in his start against Portland, allowing six earned runs over six innings of work. Saupold has shown a tendency to bounce back after shaky starts, though, so don't be surprised to see the righty move up next week.
