I agree. Borchard will be in AAA. I meant Borchard mashing the ball in ST and then with AAA.

Hopefully Borchard will mash the ball to increase his trade value. If Borchard were to hit in AAA then if there were an opening in the Sox outfield maybe they'd call him up.

The signing of Dye signalled an end to Borchard's future with the Sox.

No doubt though Borchard's future is with another team, maybe that will be a football team.

Wasn't Borchard released by a team in the winter leagues? That should tell you something there? Give him another year in the minors then declare him a bust.
He wasn't ready to be brought up last year. Sometimes that can be a bad mistake with young players. Remember when Ruffkorn was brought up to pitch against Cleveland? That was some poor chance at success. That still amazes to this day.

Yep, the Mexican League. Pretty sad.
