Julio Borbon fakes being hit by pitch in hilarious fashion

Julio Borbon flopJulio Borbon tried to pull off the baseball equivalent of a flop on Thursday, and it did not go well. Borbon entered the San Diego Padres-Chicago Cubs game as a defensive replacement in the 8th inning with the Cubs down 4-2. He was facing Padres reliever Luke Gregerson in the bottom of the inning and had a 1-2 count. Gregerson threw a breaking ball in the dirt that seemed to bounce between Borbon’s feet. After a delayed reaction, Borbon began hopping around as if he had been hit by the pitch. The umpire didn’t buy it. Borbon grounded out two pitches later to end the inning.

Here’s another look at the acting job:
