It's hard to imagine what could have made Tim Tebow's at-bat Saturday night any worse.

First Tebow's bat went into the second level of the stands. Then, with a new bat in-hand, he struck out swinging.

Tebow's at-bat came in a game for the Columbia Fireflies, the Single-A affiliate of the Mets, against the Charleston RiverDogs. He is batting .228 through 58 games this season.

Despite his mediocre numbers this season, Tebow could still be a part of a division-championship-winning Fireflies team this season. As of Friday night, they were in first place in the South Atlantic League's southern division with a 40-27 record.

Blue Jays’ Roberto Osuna feels good in return to the mound .
Lately, when he’s been away from the game, Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna hasn’t felt like himself. He didn’t pitch Friday in a save situation, but returned Sunday for a dominant performance in a low-leverage inning.Toes on the rubber, ball in his hand, 97 m.p.h. of heat in his arm. Friday night, the Toronto Blue Jays closer didn’t get to have that feeling, a mental health issue preventing him from pitching in a save situation. But on Sunday, having reported to his manager earlier in the day that he was feeling well enough to pitch, Osuna got to go on a mound and feel like himself again.
