 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -The Texas Rangers completed a deal with outfielder Julio Borbon, signing the 35th overall pick to a major league contract just before Wednesday night's deadline to sign drafted players.
``It was fairly close,'' general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday, when the team announced the deal. ``We used all the time we had. That's a fair way to put it.''
Borbon was offered the major league deal in the final hour before the deadline. Had the deal not been completed, the Rangers would have lost their rights to Borbon.
A major league deal means the team will put Borbon on the team's 40-man roster. He must undergo a physical in Arlington first, and will report to Class-A Spokane.
``We're confident he's fine,'' Daniels said.
Borbon hit .345 with six triples and 10 stolen bases as a junior last spring at Tennessee, where he overcame a broken ankle suffered early in the spring. He finished with a .355 career average for the Volunteers, and ranked third in triples (13) and ninth in hits (223).
