Fantasy Tip: For now, the light-hitting Julio Borbon figures to get the bulk of the starts in center field for the Cubs. He offers solid defense and good speed on the bases but not much else, so he should only be considered in deep NL-only leagues.

Rangers | Julio Borbon to waivers

The Texas Rangers couldn't find a trade partner for OF Julio Borbon, so they were forced to place him on outright waivers.

Fantasy Tip: If no one claims him, he can be sent to the minors, but given the interest in the speedy but offensively frustrating fly-catcher, that's unlikely to happen. Landing in the right spot for a playing-time opening will make him an intriguing, low-risk grab in deep formats.
