New Arrival: Glenn Borgmann, C, Chicago White Sox

IMG.jpg

Glenn Borgmann was drafted three times:

  • 1969, 6th round by the Giants out of Miami-Dade College (January draft)
  • 1969, 2nd round by the Pirates out of Miami-Dade
  • 1971, 1st round by the Twins out of Univ. of Alabama

Borgman would retire with a career 5.6 WAR over 9 seasons in the majors. He never a starter, but was a decent enough backup catcher.

Where Borgman really shined was in the minors. He would spend five seasons down there, and generally terrorized pitching, with a slash line of .303/.409/.448 with 36 HR.
