    South Carolina 2B Kevin Melillo, a former high school teammate of Brewers farmhand Rickie Weeks, out-homered Powell last season and could be an offensive second baseman down the road. He's battled a broken hamate this season and some scouts doubt his defensive tools, where he grades out no better than average.
