Sborz for Zambrano

The Texas Rangers acquired pitcher Josh Sborz from the Los Angeles Dodgersfor pitcher Jhan Zambrano.

What does it give the Texas Rangers
In Sborz, the Rangers are taking a flier on a reliever with good talent (but poor results in MLB, so far). He will probably compete for a bullpen role this spring.

What does it give the Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers are deep in relievers, so they were able to move on from Sborz after designating him for assignment recently.

Fantasy impact
Sborz is off the fantasy radar for the time being, since he must still prove he can become a bullpen regular in MLB. Zambrano is a young arm that the Dodgers will take a lot of time developing. There are no guarantees with him, either, so he too should be off the fantasy radar at present time.
