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.
 
4/2/2012 9:44:00 PM
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.

Description: Texas put center fielder Julio Borbon on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with inflammation in his left hamstring. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
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 was pulled from yesterday's game in the first inning after another defensive miscue. SOURCE: MLB
Insight: He has been a mess in the field this spring. Even though the Rangers started the spring by making him their CF, they are considering giving the job to David Murphy. They will decide in the coming days.

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.

Description: Rangers OF Julio Borbon has had a strong spring offensively; however, his defense is what could keep him from being Texas' everyday CF. SOURCE: ESPN.com
Insight: If Borbon does win the starting CF job for the Rangers he could easily post 30+ stolen bases.

Description: Julio Borbon is set as the Rangers' CF. SOURCE: RANGERS BLOG
Insight: He could get a little more rope than last season if he gets off to a slow start. He is a good value pick right now after all the hype wore off last season. He still has the potential to steal a lot of bases as he gathers more MLB experience.

Description: Julio Borbon stole his 12th base of the season last night.
Insight: Borbon has the speed to steal plenty of bases and has hit well enough in the past four months after struggling at the start of the year. However, the Rangers haven't let him run much from the bottom of the order. Expect more steals next year.
