Third-round pick: SS Josh Rutledge, Alabama

The Rockies shored up their position player prospects further in the third round, selecting shortstop Josh Rutledge from the University of Alabama.

During his junior season, Rutledge has hit .365, slugged .540 (with 10 homers) and had a .405 OBP.  He stole 15 bases in 18 attempts.  He did strike out 43 times against just 14 walks.  This looks like another solid pick to me.
