June Farm Report: Will Swanner, Josh Rutledge and Carl Thomore Featured

We had been aiming at releasing a full farm report in the first full week of each month. Given Matt Muzia's well-deserved vacation, my life getting a bit hectic, and the amateur draft last week, this month's edition is a bit delayed. It should leave you no less satisfied.

In this edition, there are three full length features with interviews, on Asheville catcher Will Swanner, Tulsa shortstop Josh Rutledge and Grand Junction outfielder Carl Thomore. Special thanks go out on this issue to RhodeIslandRoxFan, who attended several Drillers games, tracked down Josh Rutledge and put together that feature.

Also included is a list of the Rockies' draft choices last week, complete with all the twitter handles we could find, previews of the Rockies' two short-season teams, and a debut of the monthly splits stat corner for all members of the PuRPs list. The July farm report will utilize the new top 30 list as voted on earlier this month.

It's sixteen pages of Rockies prospect goodness. Start digesting today!
