Borbon was assigned to Double-A Bowie, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports. Borbon has spent most of the 2016 campaign at Bowie, where he owns a line of .275/.336/.362. However, he made two brief stints with Baltimore over the course of the season. During his limited action with the big club, he went 4-for-13 with three strikeouts over six games.
Borbon was designated for assignment Sunday, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports. Borbon's stint with the club was short-lived, as he was recalled Saturday as a late replacement for Adam Jones, who continues to deal with a hamstring injury. Rather than keep Borbon around another day, the club decided they were satisfied with the remaining members of their bench, and instead opted to bolster the depth of their bullpen.
Borbon has been recalled from Double-A Bowie and is in the lineup Saturday against the Yankees, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports. With Adam Jones battling a strained hamstring, Borbon will come up to add depth to the outfield for the time being. The 30-year-old has appeared in only five games for Baltimore on the year, spending the bulk of the year at Double-A, where he holds a .275/.336/.362 slash line. Borbon will bat ninth in the order and man center field Saturday. In a corresponding move, Mike Wright was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk to clear a spot on the 25-man roster.
Borbon will report to Double-A Bowie after getting outrighted Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Borbon was DFA'd on Tuesday after spending a week with the Orioles. The outfielder will be taken off the 40-man roster and go back to Bowie, where he has spent 83 games this season, before his contract was selected by Baltimore. The 30-year-old could get another chance with the club later on this season, but didn't get much time on the field during his brief time in the big leagues.
Borbon was designated for assignment on Tuesday. With Ubaldo Jimenez returning from the paternity list on Tuesday, the Orioles needed to clear a roster spot and opted to do so by DFA'ing Borbon. Borbon's primary value to the Orioles was as a left-handed outfielder, but Hyun-Soo Kim's return nullified his role almost entirely. Borbon will now be subject to waivers, but he could return to the Orioles' organization if he goes unclaimed.
