Borbon sent down…McCarthy on the 60-day DL
The Rangers have sent outfielder Julio Borbon back to Triple A Oklahoma in order to activate pitcher Dustin Nippert off the disabled list. They have also made room for Nippert on the 40-man roster by putting Brandon McCarthy on the 60-day disabled list.
Borbon was 1-for-5 in his stay with the Rangers. His departure leaves the Rangers with just three players on the bench and an eight-man bullpen that right now includes Derek Holland.
McCarthy is on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his right shoulder blade and is not expected back until August. He has just begun a throwing program.
