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.
