Pike, the ace for the Fire Frogs, is not playing far from home. The young right-handed starter graduated from nearby Winter Haven High School in 2012. Like his teammate, Alex Jackson, Pike was also drafted by the Seattle Mariners. Atlanta acquired Pike in a trade with Seattle on December 9, 2016.
Since being assigned to the Fire Frogs, Pike has shown glimpses of the making of a major league starter. Pike leads the team in strikeouts with 45, and he is among the leaders with a 2.29 ERA. This season, he has picked up three wins and conceded only one loss in seven starts.
