Last Week's Rank |

1 | T.J. Beam | TRE | Extended his streak to 13 straight games without giving up an earned run and he hasn't given up a HR in 16 straight appearances. | 1 |

2 | Brett Gardner | TAM | Hit just .259 last week but still leads the system with a .362 batting average. Has nearly as many walks as the next two highest totals on the Tampa team. | 2 |

3 | Cody Ehlers | TAM | Hit .348 last week with a HR & 8 RBI. Leads the farm system in HRs (9) and RBI (40). | 3 |

4 | Jose Tabata | CHA | Second in farm system with a .345 average, second in doubles (14), and he's still hitting .477 with runners in scoring position. | 4 |

5 | Austin Jackson | CHA | An 0-8 in the extra inning game last week destroyed his .300 average, hit just .194 for the week. | 5 |

6 | Charlie Manning | TRE | Promoted to AAA after tossing two more scoreless innings last week. He's not only just getting lefties out either. | 6 |

7 | Elvys Quezada | TAM | After not giving up an earned run in Charleston, he's tossed five shutout innings with Tampa. | 12 |

8 | Gerardo Casdiego | TAM | Has a 0.82 ERA in his last ten games and leads the farm system with ten saves. | 10 |

9 | Phil Hughes | TRE | Four starts into his time at the AA level and he hasn't had a Hughes-like performance yet. | 9 |

10 | Justin Christian | TRE | Hit .316 last week and he's 24-26 in stolen bases this year, but his extra-base hits are down in 2006. | 8 |

11 | Steven White | TRE | His control has gotten better over the last two starts, walking just three in his last 14 innings pitched. | 13 |

12 | J. Brent Cox | TRE | Has a 1.17 ERA in his last six games, but his strikeout ratio has been cut in half during that time. | 17 |

13 | Darrell Rasner | COL | Bounced back from his worst outing of the year with six scoreless innings. | 18 |

14 | Bronson Sardinha | TRE | Finally showing some pop, smacking two doubles, a triple, and two home runs last week. Hitting .351 in his last 23 games. | 21 |

15 | Phil Coke | TAM | Keeps putting up quality start after quality start and finally picked up his first win of the year last week. | 15 |

16 | Cory Stuart | CHA | Struck out a career-high 8 batters in five shutout innings in one appearance last week. Piggy-back is preventing him from piling up numbers. | NR |

17 | Shelley Duncan | TRE | Still leads the system in doubles, but a 1-22 performance last week has his average back down in the low .200's. | 14 |

18 | Edgar Soto | CHA | Five shutout innings in his last game offset a brutal two innings (6 ER) earlier in the week. | 16 |

19 | Jeff Kennard | TRE | Promoted to AA after not allowing an earned run in his last six games with the Tampa Yankees. | 22 |

20 | Bryan Rueger | CHA | Still hasn't given up an earned run this year and only a limited number of innings keeps him this low. | 24 |

21 | Reegie Corona | CHA | Possibly headed to the DL after getting 14 hits last week!! Hitting .444 at home, Corona needs to prove he can hit on the road. | NR |

22 | Jason Jones | TAM | Moved into the rotation, and after struggling in his first start last week, tossed six shutout innings in his last start. | 23 |

23 | Jim Conroy | CHA | Ouch! A 12.00 ERA in two games last week destroyed his solid numbers this year. | 19 |

24 | Bryan Villalona | CHA | Like Coke, Villalona keeps putting together solid starts. Has a 2.63 ERA in his last six games. | 26 |

25 | Abel Gomez | CHA | Walked five more batters in his last appearance. Using smoke-and-mirrors to post a 1.89 ERA so far. | 28 |

26 | Eduardo Nunez | CHA | Demoted to Charleston despite driving in runs at an incredible rate, but a .184 average isn't getting the job done. | 20 |

27 | Eric Wordekemper | CHA | Tossed four innings of scoreless relief last week and yes, he unbelievably walked two batters in one game. | NR |

28 | Kevin Thompson | COL | Only played in one game last week before going on the DL. He was just hitting .263 in his previous 10 games. | 25 |

29 | Ben Jones | CHA | Struggled in Tampa but looks like a world-beater in Charleston. Hit 2 HRs & 10 RBI last week. | NR |

30 | Randy Ruiz | TRE | Former Royals prospect had 9 hits - 4 doubles, HR - and 4 RBI last week. Has helped solidify inconsistent Trenton offense. | NR |
