TigsTown Power Rankings: 11th Edition

Humberto Sanchez has been atop the Power Rankings all season long, and has continued to impress since his promotion to Toledo. But the pitcher that took his rotation slot in Erie has been enjoying success since his promotion as well.

Note: The rankings are reflective of the how player has been playing as of late, and are not meant to replace the TigsTown Top 50 rankings. This list includes all players in the minor leagues, but not all are technically prospects. We'll include any standout performances as they warrant inclusion, but it's unlikely someone like Chad Durbin will find himself on the list.

Stats Updated as of 6/24

Rank Name Team Comments Last Week's Rank
1 Jair Jurrjens ERI Jurrjens takes over the top slot with the help of 7 shutout innings – Jurrjens seems unfazed by the jump up in competition; another potential Tiger starter in a year or two 2
2 Humberto Sanchez TOL lost his top slot to Jurrjens but no fault of his own; he gave up four runs over 2 starts, including 13 more strike outs 1
3 Anthony Claggett WMI makes a big jump up with his miniscule ERA, only made 1 appearance in the AS Break shortened week, but in that inning, he struck out the side 7
4 Ramon Garcia WMI The ‘Caps ace fell a slot, but only because he didn't get a chance to make a start with the team only getting three games in 3
5 Kevin Ardoin LAK Ardoin came just two outs short of a CG, but still picked up a win while allowing just 1 run 13
6 Jeff Larish LAK still the odds-on favorite to be the first position player promotion, esp with the players brought in behind him - ripped 3 doubles and took 4 walks on the week 4
7 Burke Badenhop WMI remains unhittable, yet again didn't allow a run over 3 innings, including 4 K's 10
8 Mike Hollimon WMI in just 2 games, Hollimon ripped four extra base hits, vaulting him up the list – if Larish isn't the first position player to get bumped, it could be Hollimon N/A
9 Orlando Perdomo WMI made just 1 appearance but picked up a save – has been remarkably consistent for the ‘Caps all year long 11
10 Andrew Kown LAK Kown put together a strong start for the L-Tigers giving up just 2 runs 12
11 Dallas Trahern LAK after a rocky start, Trahern has been remarkably consistent – take out his first 4 starts at the start of the year, and he's got a 3.03 ERA 16
12 Clete Thomas LAK The centerfielder ripped three extra base hits as he begins to rebound after some struggles in late May 20
13 Chris Spurling TOL the reliever is hoping to make his case to get back to the bigs, and he can't do much more than he is – he did give up one run the past week, but that makes the first one since the first week of May 14
14 Josh Phelps TOL blasted a couple of home runs and drove in four more for the ‘Hens 15
15 P.J. Finigan LAK still having a great season, despite taking his first L of the year after starting the season 7-0 8
16 Kody Kirkland ERI still a low average and not a lot of patience, but ripped two more homers for the ‘Wolves; 60% of his hits have been for extra bases 17
17 Luke French WMI one run allowed over 7 innings gets French into the top 20 after being on the outside looking in last week N/A
18 Kevin Whelan LAK picked up 3 saves without allowing a run as he's returning to his early season form N/A
19 Cameron Maybin WMI Maybin had a very rough week with just 3 hits; but after being a mainstay on the list when healthy, he gets a pass and stays on (for this week) 9
20 Mike Rabelo ERI 3 doubles, a homer, 7-16 for the week; Rabelo might have a shot at the big leagues yet N/A
