COLUMBIA, S.C. | Tim Tebow’s final week with Columbia Fireflies was much like most of the others — a few promising moments interspersed among struggles at the plate. Tebow had two doubles Thursday in a loss to Kannapolis (N.C.) as the Fireflies opened the second half of the season Thursday night. He then he went 0 for 9 his next three games. Still, it didn’t stop the New York Mets from promoting the former Heisman Trophy winner up to St. Lucie of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League on Sunday.
AURORA | This time, David Peterson’s draft spot was much more to his liking and a much truer measure of his ability. Just after he completed his senior year at Regis Jesuit High School, the ace left-handed pitcher got selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 28th round of the 2014 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, a place he found himself in largely because of a broken leg. Peterson instead headed to the University of Oregon, where he knew he might improve his draft stock tremendously the second time around. That became a black and white fact on Monday evening when the New York Mets spent their first round pick (No. 20 overall) on Peterson, a spot 834 selections higher than in 2014.
The Blue Jays sent left-handers Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt to the Tigers in the deal. Price can become a free agent after this season.
