The New York Mets are promoting Tim Tebow from low-A ball to St. Lucie of the Advanced A League. He was batting .222 with 3 home runs, 23 RBIs, a .311 on-base percentage and a .340 slugging percentage with 69 strikeouts and 23 walks in 212 at-bats for the Columbia Fireflies. "It's not like he's tearing up the league, but at the same time all of the indications are positive in terms of various things we look at -- chase rates and exit velocity," Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. "The bottom line is the average isn't there, but he's improving." Tebow, 29, signed with the Mets in September and spent time in the Florida Instructional League and the Arizona Fall League. He won the Heisman Trophy with the Florida Gators and helped the team take two national championships.

The first-place Milwaukee Brewers added a veteran bat Sunday when they claimed catcher Stephen Vogt off waivers from the Oakland Athletics, the team announced. Vogt, 32, has a career .251/.312/.409 slash line over six seasons with the A's and Tampa Bay Rays. He was an American League All-Star in 2015 and 2016 and a fan favorite in Oakland, but he became expendable this year when the A's decided to give 26-year-old Bruce Maxwell the majority of the team's at-bats at catcher. The A's designated Vogt for assignment on Thursday. He is signed to a one-year, $2.965 million contract this season. Vogt has played primarily at catcher in the big leagues, but he also logged some time at first base, designated hitter and the outfield in Oakland. Manny Pina and Jett Bandy, Milwaukee's catchers, rank 13th in the majors at the position with a combined .717 OPS. But Bandy is 2-for-38 with 17 strikeouts in June.
