After a recent relative hot streak, Cubs’ outfielder Julio Borbon is afraid he will be the next player traded by the club.
“I’ve heard the whispers, which have now officially become rumors,” Borbon said. “I hoped to be a big part of this team for the next 10 or 12 years, but now I’m not so sure.”
“You’d be surprised to learn how many clubs are interested in Julio,” Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said. “The most I’ve ever seen for a guy hitting .206 with a .278 slugging percentage.”
A source close to the team said a trade to the Dodgers is imminent with the Cubs getting in return four passes to Disneyland and $25 worth of In-N-Out Burger coupons.
