Description: Former Texas outfielder Julio Borbon will join the Chicago Cubs.
Insight: The Cubs claimed him off waivers. Borbon has a decent set of wheels (40 steals in 216 career games) but he probably won't play enough to warrant fantasy consideration.

Description: Julio Borbon has been sent down to Triple-A.
Insight: The Rangers were hoping that Borbon would assert himself and become a candidate for the starting centerfield job but instead he's headed to the minors. Borbon hit .250 in 25 games for Texas this spring. What's surprising is that Craig Gentry, who had an even worse spring than Borbon (.139 in 17 games), somehow made the team instead of Borbon.

Insight: Borbon was supposed to be a solid source of runs and steals this season but has struggled a bit, batting only .270. Stash him on your DL until he gets back in action and hope that the hamstring injury does not limit his speed game.

Description: Julio Borbon continues to struggle defensively this spring. SOURCE: CBSSports.com
Insight: Borbon has some real talent and great speed, but can't seem to get his game together. He's been misplaying balls all spring, and right now its his inability to play defense that may continue to frustrate owners hoping to see the former first round pick take the next step this season.
