May Farm Report: Tyler Matzek, Christian Friedrich and Trevor Story Make Big Statements

Our season minor league preview got such great reactions that I decided to push forward with the project, providing monthly reviews on Rockies' farm system. Such a project is quite time-consuming, so Matt Muzia of SB Nation Denver agreed to assist with the production and content. So while you are bored on a Rockies off-day, today is a good day to catch up on the brightest pebbles in the organization.

In this initial edition, you'll find two main features, focusing on the resurgence of Tyler Matzek and Christian Friedrich, and on the seriously exceptional April of Trevor Story.

We were fortunate enough to interview Christian Friedrich, Trevor Story, the Modesto Nuts' radio play-by-play man Alex Margulies, and the Asheville Tourists' radio play-by-play man Doug Maurer. We appreciate those four taking time out of their schedules to answer our questions.

Make sure to leave comments and constructive criticism on what you would like to see more from this feature. Oh...and I defy you not to fall in love with Trevor Story. Enjoy.
