I would not worry about Borchard. It was just their hunch. Another poster with an "inside source" said it was a player whom is on the 40 and has been up with the Sox but not now which would suggest Rauch, Borchard, Ginter, Sanders or Stewart. If it is Ginter the Reds will have nasty boys II along with Valentine and Wagner.

Sullivan adds righty relief
Williams moves to fix pen weakness

The White Sox addressed their final glaring weakness Thursday night when they agreed to a deal with Cincinnati for reliever Scott Sullivan.
Sullivan figures to provide the Sox with the veteran right-hander they needed after losing Billy Koch to right elbow inflammation.
General manager Ken Williams said that even if Koch hadn't gone on the disabled list, the Sox would have made the deal.
"We've had an issue from the right side of the bullpen since before the trading deadline," Williams said.
"We thought we were close to a couple of things before the deadline and obviously they didn't materialize. So we were fortunate to acquire someone we think can certainly help in a grand fashion."
The Sox, who will give up a minor-league player to be named, have to pay only half of Sullivan's remaining salary of $596,000.
Sullivan, 32, went 6-0 with a 3.62 ERA in 50 appearances for the Reds. In 17 games since June 16, he has allowed just one run on 10 hits over 172/3 innings.
"He gives you a little different look, a little different angle," Williams said. "He's not a power guy. He's a sinker/slider guy who can help keep hitters off balance. He has proven to be a competitor who can get the job done."
The 6-foot-3-inch, 210-pound Sullivan leads all major-league relievers in innings pitched since 1997.
The Sox initiated the deal by claiming Sullivan off waivers. At that point, the Reds could have pulled him back or negotiated a trade.
Right-hander Jon Adkins was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte to make room for Sullivan.
