Mets GM Hints Tim Tebow’s Major-League Debut Could Be Coming

This is the first season the Syracuse Mets will play in the International League. That day just won't be Opening Day 2019.

Tebow has continued his duties in the fall for ESPN while playing in the Mets minor league system.

Instead, Tebow figures to begin the season at Triple-A Syracuse, serving as minor league depth in case the Mets incur several injuries.

The New York Mets cut Tim Tebow on Tuesday and sent him to the minor leagues.

"Last year just at the start was so disappointing, Day 1 getting injured, and then it's like an uphill battle the whole time, just very frustrating", Tebow said in an interview with MLB.com, "Every day, I'm all-in on pursuing this".

The 31-year-old football convert was reassigned to the New York Mets' Triple-A Syracuse affiliate Tuesday, but Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen hinted that Tebow could impact the big league club this season.

I asked Tim Tebow if he plans on keeping in touch with any of the #Mets players. "You've been around here, you've seen that".

In 84 games last season with Double-A Binghamton, Tebow batted.273 with six homers and 36 RBIs. "We're going to give it as good of a shot as we can".
