    RHP Mike Ekstrom might have the best combination of stuff and command of any pitcher in San Diego, normally a hotbed of talent, but he's just 6-feet tall and that may suppress his draft standing. The Oregon State transfer pitched well when Point Loma Nazarene faced D-I opponents and he led his team to a berth in the NAIA World Series, going 11-4, 1.80 with 117 strikeouts in 120 innings. He throws three pitches for strikes--an 89-91 mph fastball that touches 93, a power slider in the low 80s and a newly developed changeup.
