      Julio Borbon, Ozzie Martinez impress Orioles' Showalter

      Orioles outfielder Julio Borbon and shortstop Ozzie Martinez are two players from minor-league camp who made a positive impression on manager Buck Showalter this spring, masnsports.com reports. Both players excel defensively, and Showalter called Borbon the type of player the team covets for its minor-league system. He was 5 for 18 with two stolen bases this spring, while Martinez was 6 for 14 with two doubles.

      Orioles happy to land Julio Borbon

      The Orioles selected outfielder Julio Borbon from the Cubs organization in the minor-league portion fo the Rule 5 draft Thursday and think he can immediately fill a need for him, according to MLB.com. "Borbon, believe it or not, is a left-handed-hitting outfielder that fills a need that we were looking for in our big league team," executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said. "He's had some good contribution in the major leagues, getting on base with his bat, playing defense and also with his legs." Borbon had just begun his fourth season with the Rangers when the Cubs claimed him off waivers in April. He hit .202 with a homer and seven steals in 104 at-bats between the two teams. "Sometimes just a change of scenery, new environment, new atmosphere, sometimes guys flourish when they kind of get that second opportunity," director of minor-league operations Kent Qualls said. "So we are excited to bring him into spring training and let our staff work with him and see what we got."

      Julio Borbon not much to see

      I'm not sure what's with all the enthusiasm over Julio Borbon. The way Fantasy owners are flocking to his player page, you'd think the Cubs had just pulled off the coup of the century. He once looked like he'd be a useful steals specialist for the Rangers but was never able to hit enough to stick in that role. I don't see why that would change with his new team. Theo Epstein has never shown much fondness for steals specialists (see Campana, Tony). Borbon isn't an upgrade over David DeJesus or Nate Schierholtz, so I don't think steady at-bats are in his future. You can leave him for the deepest of NL-only Rotisserie leagues.
