The Brewer power ranking is a composite score that considers on the field as well as off the field activities.  Do we really need a Brewer player power ranking?  Of course we do.

1: Yovani Gallardo

Yovani makes it two weeks in a row and deservingly so, Gallardo is king of the rankings.

2: Ryan Braun’s thumb

There is so much mystery around Braun’s thumb and how this will impact the right fielder’s season.

3: Khris Davis  

Note to over reactors, Davis is going to have bad series (see: Braves) and very good series (see: Red Sox) and many in between. Can’t we all chill and let Davis get some playing time?

4: Kyle Lohse, Matt Garza, Marco Estrada, Wily Peralta

In addition to Gallardo, the starters completed one of the greatest first weeks of starting pitching in Brewer history.

5: Carlos Gomez

Hitting .320 with 2 home runs and 7 stolen bases; picking up right where he left off in 2013.

6: Jonathan Lucroy

Lucroy is hitting .364 because of course he is.

7: Aramis Ramirez

Still hitting .440 and I stand by my “if he keeps this up he will win MVP” stance.

8: Mark Reynolds

In 12 plate appearances Reynolds has 7 strike outs and 1 home run. Not sure if this is good or bad, just know it’s EXACTLY as advertised.

9: Francisco Rodriguez

As the closer 2 for 2 so far, okay this is working so far.

10: Brandon Kintzler

Looking good out of the pen, it’s nice to have a guy like Kintzler.
