Jason Cole over at Lonestardugout.com has this press release from the Univerity of Tennessee:
"Julio Borbon was called up to the Major Leagues by the Texas Rangers Monday. A standout centerfielder for the Volunteers from 2005-07, Borbon was drafted 35th overall by the Rangers in the 2007 MLB Draft and has been starring this summer for the Class AAA Oklahoma City Redhawks of the Pacific Coast League.
“This is a very important day for me and my family,” Borbon said. “It is so exciting and satisfying to see my dream come true. To think that just two years ago I was at Tennessee and now I’m experiencing this lifelong dream—it’s hard to describe how I’m feeling right now. I owe thanks to so many people for helping to guide me along the way.” Borbon ranked sixth in the PCL in hits, tied for sixth in triples (5), eighth in runs, tied for ninth in stolen bases and was 25th in batting average.
Texas Rangers Director of Player Development Scott Servais had an opportunity to personally evaluate Borbon and other Texas prospects during a visit to Oklahoma City last week. After being notified of his promotion, Borbon flew to Dallas on Monday and is unsure of when he’ll see his first action with the Rangers.
“I’ll be ready whenever they need me,” Borbon said.
