Decent chance Tim Tebow plays in bigs next year

Martin Maldonado Daniel Murphy and Adam Ottavino could be Mets' free-agent targets this offseason

On today's edition of So Totally Mets, Jason Smith and Mike Harmon dive into the Mets' hiring of Brodie Van Wagenen as the team's new GM, who was an Major League Baseball agent before the hire. Van Wagenen is already making headlines as he said earlier on Tuesday that he wouldn't rule out Tim Tebow potentially making the Mets' opening day roster.

The Mets chose to go with an outside the box hire at General Manager. "You've got to identify who complements yourself". He knows what he's doing up in that front office.

I would expect the New York Mets to soon announce the hiring of a new hitting coach, bench coach, and maybe even a new first base coach.

Alderson's top three assistants - assistant general manager John Ricco and special assistants JP Ricciardi and Omar Minaya - have been asked to stay on and are attending this week's GM meetings. "We're going to be open-minded to all scenarios".


The agent turned new GM suggested that Tebow - who hit six dingers in Double-A to go along with a.273 average and 103 strikeouts before a hand injury ended his year - could start the year at Triple-A and, if he plays well, could end up being a member of the big league squad.

Tim Tebow #15 (New York Mets) of the Scottsdale Scorpions warms up in the dugout during the Arizona Fall League game against the Peoria Javelinas at Peoria Stadium on October 13, 2016 in Peoria, Arizona.

"He is a really hard worker and he has a burning desire to succeed, and he communicated that very clearly to me, and I told him that we're going to give him every opportunity to try to capitalize on that both in the short term and the long term, " Van Wagenen said. Tim Tebow is 30 years old.
