List Rules Vote up for the MLB pitcher that you think will be the next to throw a perfect game or a no-hitter.

There are so many dominant pitchers in the game of baseball today as evident by the average strikeout rate of many MLB batters going up and their batting average going down. So with Homer Bailey throwing his second no-hitter in two days I was wondering which MLB pitcher will be the next one to go nine without allowing a hit. If I were a betting man my money would be on Matt Harvey, Homer Bailey, Clayton Kershaw or Chris Sale, but as you know I'm a man of the people. So I want to know what the people of Ranker think, who do you think will be the next pitcher to go nine without allowing a hit, I put 20 pitchers that I think all have a chance of doing the unthinkable, but if you think I left someone out, add them in. Enjoy!
