Nice little profile on the Hooks' Mitch Einertson from his hometown paper.
“I've never felt like it was easy. You hit .400 in high school, but you come out here and everyone who was good around the world is who you're facing.”
But Ricky Bennett says this:
“He's still a young, developing player. He's continuing to make progress offensively and defensively. This is a really big year for Mitch in his second year at Corpus Christi. We're looking for him maybe to advance to Triple-A next year with the outfield talent we've got coming up behind him.”
Pointing out that Einertson is not only blocked by Lee, Bourn, and Pence, but also by Yordany and Bogusevic, it's not going to be an easy climb. That said, Einertson:
"I still feel like I'm in a good spot at my age. I still feel like (the Astros) like me, and they're giving me the opportunity to play."
