Astros acquired OF Bobby Borchering from the Diamondbacks.

Ranked before the season by Baseball America as the Diamondbacks' No. 10 prospect, Borchering has made a full-time move to the outfield this season and has batted .247/.310/.469 with 20 homers and 68 RBI between High- and Double-A. The former first-round pick strikes out a lot, but he has some pop. He's not close to being major league-ready.

Diamondbacks agreed to terms with first-round pick 3B Bobby Borchering.

With three days to spare. Borchering was selected 16th overall in June's first-year player draft. He's a promising switch-hitter with a good amount of power potential but the 18-year-old has a ways to go defensively. He received a $1.8 million signing bonus, $300,000 above his slot recommendation.

Diamondbacks selected high school third baseman Bobby Borchering with the 16th pick in the draft.

The Twins were thought to want Borchering, a switch-hitter with potential 25-homer power. If he were a legitimate third baseman, he could have gone in the top 10. Unfortunately, he's probably going to need to move to first base.
