In a normal year in San Diego, Einertson's talents wouldn't stand out. He's a 5-foot-9, righthanded-hitting outfielder--hardly a profile that excites scouts. But it's not a normal year for the traditional hotbed and only one player, Matt Bush, ranks as a better prospect. Einertson is a gritty player with fine defensive instincts. He has an outstanding arm, and his fastball has been clocked at 92 mph, though he has little feel for pitching. Finding the right position has been a challenge, and most teams seem to think he could settle in at second base in pro ball. Einertson's bat is solid by high school standards, but he has holes in his swing and there are questions how he'll hit with wood. Along with Bush, he's a San Diego State recruit, but he's considered signable--especially if he's selected in the first five rounds.
