He was the last Phillies player to wear the uniform number 42 before it was retired out of respect to Jackie Robinson.
In a nine-season major league career, Borland posted an 11–9 record with a 4.17 ERA and eight saves in 207 appearances. From 1988 to 2005, in the minors, he had a 56–45 mark with a 3.35 ERA and 124 saves in 623 games.
