Mets reassign Tebow to minor league camp

Mets' Tim Tebow sent to minor league camp, politely declines swing advice from Jose Canseco

You might have heard of one of them.

Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon says in a release the organization "is thrilled the Syracuse community will have a chance to connect with our players up close and personal". The 2007 Heisman Trophy victor went for 4 for 15 with no extra-base hits in 18 plate appearances during spring training. "And if I get that opportunity (in MLB) it would be a blessing", Tebow told reporters Tuesday, according to Matt Ehalt of NorthJersey.com. "And that's just my goal and we're going to give it as good a shot as we can".

While Tebow won't be starting the year at the major league level, it's certainly possible he ends up with the Mets at some point during the 2019 season, especially in September when the rosters expand.


Maybe one day, Tebow.

Tebow had not played baseball since high school before the Mets signed him in 2016.

The 31-year-old last season hit.273 with six home runs and a.734 OPS in 84 Double-A games last season before he was forced to have season-ending surgery in July after breaking his hand. The talented shortstop hit.250/.333/.500 in nine games this spring, though he did show some nerves at times.
