BA Hot List Predictions

With the second Baseball America Hot List set to come out soon, I thought I'd take a stab at predicting 2 players that will appear on the list.

1. Trevor Cahill
Cahill is having a ridiculous season thus far, with a 31% strike out rate, a meager 3% walk rate, and a ground ball rate sitting at 67%, making him one of the most impressive pitchers in the minors right now, even when compared to his teammate Brett Anderson. Trevor recently went 6 innings against San Jose, giving up 2 hits while striking out 9 and walking only 2.

2. Cale Iorg
(Before looking at Iorg's numbers, keep in mind that he spent the last 2 years in Portugal as a missionary, NOT playing baseball)
Since April 12th, Iorg is 12 for 20, with a home run in 3 straight games, 3 walks, and 1 strike out. He's also scored 8 runs in that same time period, with 6 RBI.

Other possible list appearances may include Steve Pearce, Gorkys Hernandez, and Deolis Guerra.
