Tebow was placed on the seven-day disabled list with a hand injury Saturday.
Tebow injured his hand in a game Thursday for Double-A Binghamton. The 30-year-old has an ugly 34.6 percent strikeout rate but a decent enough .273/.336/.399 slash line in 84 games for Binghamton this season, which could be enough for the struggling Mets to give him an opportunity down the stretch.
Jones was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Jones was up for just one day, with Brandon Belt returning quickly from the paternity list. Jones grabbed a homer in his solitary start, but he'll likely have to await an injury before getting another opportunity.
Sewald was called up to the majors on Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Sewald has a 5.05 ERA in 41 innings for the Mets this season. His 24.1 percent strikeout rate and 7.5 percent walk rate are each solid, but he barely gets any ground balls (27.1 percent). He'll fill the bullpen spot vacated by Jeurys Familia, who was traded to the Athletics on Saturday.
Cespedes will see a specialist and get an MRI early next week, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Cespedes was activated from the disabled list Friday but revealed that he will eventually need surgery to deal with calcification on both his heels. He was unavailable off the bench Saturday against the Yankees but hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game. It's a difficult situation to get a read on, even for the Mets, who evidently were unaware that surgery would be necessary. The outfielder's immediate future should become more clear after the MRI.
Mejia will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester to start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Mejia made a spot start for the Twins at the end of June, allowing four runs on six hits over four innings in a loss to the Cubs. The 25-year-old has a road matchup against the Blue Jays this time around, but still appears destined for another short stay in the majors with Ervin Santana (finger) nearing a return from the disabled list.
