Drafted in the 7th round (209th overall) by the Pittsburgh PiratesĀ in 2013 (signed for $180,400)
It was a breakout year for Borden, as he edged Nevada's Braden Shipley for the Mountain West Conference ERA title and went 8-1, 2.19 with 71 strikeouts and 31 walks over 95 innings. He has a durable, athletic build at 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds and pitches with a clean, repeatable delivery. His fastball sits in the 90-92 mph range and touches 95 in the early innings. His secondary stuff is below-average. He has more confidence in his curveball than his changeup, though he does show the ability to throw strikes and keep his team in games. If he can't develop feel for a changeup, Borden could wind up in the bullpen, where his fastball could play up.
