Dike is a 6-4, 218 lb senior left handed pitcher from Nebraska. He ran the 60 in 7.31 and threw 81 mph from first base during infield drills. Dike pitched 3 effective innings at the showcase, throwing a 76-80 mph fastball, 61-63 mph curveball and 71 mph change up. He did a good job of mixing up his pitches, changing speeds and getting hitters to put the ball in play. Dike lacks a swing and miss pitch right now until he can develop more power and velocity on his pitches but can be effective as a big lefty with some pitching knowledge. Dike also showed some ability with the bat. He has a no load, no stride approach at the plate which doesn’t suit a power hitter will but generates good bat speed and has some loft in his swing. He could really come on with some adjustments offensively.

Ian Dike is a 2006 LHP/1B from Lincoln, Nebraska, with a thick, strong build at 6'3", 205 pounds. He pitches from a high 3/4 arm slot, with excellent arm action and a short back side that hides the ball well from hitters. He has a very controlled delivery with a consistent release point. He topped out at 81mph with slight arm side run on his fastball. He also throws a cutter that has more movement at 78-79. He throws a 1-7 curveball (63-67 mph) that has a sharp bite at times, and has a hard change (73-74 mph) with sinking action. At the plate, he has a short, compact swing with excellent bat speed. He has good bat control and hit hard line drives to all fields with big time power. Defensively, he has quick feet, and lots of range around the bag. In the games he also made two outstanding defensive plays. He has good arm strength (84 mph) with accuracy and carry. He has a great passion for the game, and it shows on the field. Ian has a great baseball body, and projects in a big way. He is a good student and will probably be a draftable player in 2006.
