The Rangers are looking for a “pitcher with options” in any trade for outfielder Julio Borbon, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. The Rangers are expected to trade the 27-year-old in the next few days, but one source said they are seeking a high return.
The Rangers had expressed confidence in being able to find a trade for Borbon that would bring back at least some value. However, as Evan Grant of the Dallas News notes, it's not clear how ready Borbon would be to help a team if he’s received in a trade or claimed. The outfielder has just one at-bat this season and has been at home since being designated for assignment.
