We've invited nine players to major league #SpringTraining including: Peter Alonso, P.J. Conlon, Kevin Kaczmarski, Patrick Mazeika, Drew Smith, Corey Taylor, Tim Tebow, David Thompson and Adonis Uceta.
The former Heisman Trophy victor hit a combined.226 last season as he spent time with New York's single-A and high-A affiliates.
During that time, the 30-year-old registered a slash line of.226/.309/.347 with eight home runs, 24 doubles and 52 RBIs over 486 plate appearances.
Tim Tebow's first professional baseball season was short on production, heavy on hype and an overwhelming success at the minor league box office. The two clubs he played for in 2017, the Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies and the St. Lucie (Fla.) Mets, set various attendance records during Tebow's tenure with those teams. Tebow is one of nine minor league players the franchise has invited to train with the big league club.
Now a full-time college football analyst, Tebow decided to make a run at his childhood dream of playing professional baseball two years ago.
Overall, though, Tebow's season stats were mediocre at best, especially at the lower levels.
The Mets' first full-squad workout in Port St. Lucie is scheduled for February 19, with their Grapefruit League opener set for February 23 at home against the Braves.
