Rangers claim pitcher…Cubs beat Orioles to Borbon

The Rangers have claimed pitcher LHP Charlie Leesman on release waivers from the White Sox. He has 5 days to accept or decline the assignment or become a free agent. He was pitching for White Sox in extended spring after having surgery for torn ACL in left knee last fall. He would go on the 40-man roster if he accepts assignment.

The Cubs have claimed Julio Borbon. The Orioles also put in a claim but the Cubs had priority. The Orioles could have had him for a low level pitching prospect but declined.



Wouldn’t the Orioles have priority since they are in the same league as the Rangers?

regarding pitching … is it possible that a language difficulty might be inhibiting finding out what might be troubling Ogando? Could there be a physical issue?
