Tebow reassigned to Mets minor league camp

Tebow reassigned to Mets minor league camp

Tebow, who despite the reassignment, can still be used in big league exhibition games in Florida, is 4-for-15 this spring. That's not surprising, of course, but it was made official this morning.

The former Heisman Trophy victor has hit.244 with 14 home runs and 88 RBIs in 210 minor league games since signing with the Mets in 2016 after playing three seasons in the NFL but failing to make it as a quarterback.

Along with Tebow, the Mets also sent their second-ranked prospect, Andres Gimenez, to the team's minor league camp, putting their current roster at 42 players.

Tebow says that he's never actually been to Syracuse, but he's looking forward to the opportunity.

Tebow, 31, is ticketed for Triple-A this season. It's like three minutes away. This is the first season the Syracuse Mets will play in the International League.

The Mets on Tuesday reassigned the quarterback-turned-outfielder to their minor league camp. He spent two years playing for St. Lucie (Fla.), Columbia (S.C.) and Binghamton, and one season in the Arizona Fall League, Syracuse.com reported. The Mets open the regular season on March 28 at Washington against the Nationals.
