Nick Tepesch Purchased, Borbon Gone

  • P Nick Tepesch purchased from AAA

Well, the Julio Borbon era ends in Texas.  I have to say I figured it would end differently.  I figure we’d work out a trade with someone.  We may yet, but a DFA was a bit of a surprise.   He had a great spring, and I hope he ends up somewhere and does well.  Always liked the guy, feel bad, but he got buried behind a lot of other guys.   We always talk about how David Murphy has never gotten playing time.  Borbon did get playing time – twice, and didn’t capture it.  Still, you feel like he could now.   It just won’t be here.  See ya later Julio.
