Drafted in the 6th round (211th overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2007 (signed for $1,497,500)
While Iorg was wrapping up his two-year Mormon mission in Lisbon, Portugal, his parents' home phone was ringing as scouts tried to gauge his interest in signing a pro baseball contract. Iorg posted a respectable .280 average with five homers and 15 stolen bases in 2005 as Alabama's everyday shortstop, but he has been abroad since then. The son of former big league infielder Garth and nephew of big league outfielder Dane, Cale had achieved assistant to the president status during his mission, a high-ranking position, but was scheduled to return to the U.S. July 14, which would give the team that drafts him a month to work him out and negotiate before the new signing deadline. Iorg hasn't played in two years, but as a freshman he showed outstanding feel for all phases of the game, a smooth swing and good actions up the middle. He wasn't going to sign for a pittance, but a team will take a chance on him later in the draft just to see what might happen this summer.
