    Dykstra has a 6-foot-3, 190-pound pitcher's frame and a long trail in the game already. The younger brother of 2008 Padres first-round pick Allan Dykstra, Jimmy Dykstra attended Rancho Bernardo High in San Diego, then went to Yavapai (Ariz.) JC and then spent a season at Louisiana State before winding up at NAIA Cal State San Marcos, where he got plenty of innings. He touched 94 mph early this year but usually works at 90-93, and he showed the ability to command his fastball to both sides of the plate. His aggressive approach and fringy secondary stuff makes him a good fit in a professional bullpen. His offspeed stuff has improved this year--his split-finger and breaking ball are both serviceable.
