Cubs Designate Julio Borbon For Assignment

The Cubs have designated outfielder Julio Borbon for assignment, tweets Carrie Muskat of A corresponding roster move will come tomorrow.

Borbon was picked up off of waivers from the Rangers back in April. After 117 plate appearances this year, his triple-slash line stands at .192/.276/.260. He has also stolen seven bases. The 27-year-old Borbon was a trade candidate back when he was designated by Texas, and ultimately was claimed by the team that then had the second-highest waiver priority. After his poor run in Chicago, however, it seems unlikely that he'll draw as much interest this time around.
