Tim Tebow, who is famous enough that his urge to participate in those old-dude fantasy camps has been transformed into an actual tryout for major league baseball teams, will hold his showcase for whichever scouts are morbidly curious enough to watch him perform on August 30 in Los Angeles, Jerry Crasnick reports.

In other news, NBC’s own Drew Silva has a preview of the showcase:

And here, via time travel, is video footage of Tebow’s tryout:

 

UPDATE: I hadn’t seen this but big league pitcher David Aardsma faced Tebow recently and he’s impressed with him. Take it for what it’s worth.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
