Tim Tebow Demoted to Mets' Minor League Camp

Tim Tebow Demoted to Mets' Minor League Camp Tim Tebow Demoted to Mets' Minor League Camp

Tebow, who spent parts of five years as an National Football League quarterback before signing with the Mets in 2016, collected just one hit in 18 at-bats across seven exhibition games.

"The ankle was kind of disappointing. Just continue the process and the journey and keep working".

Despite one hit and 11 strikeouts in 18 at-bats - plus a.105 OBP to go with that.056 average - Tebow did not want to use the injury as an excuse. He has been used exclusively as a designated hitter or pinch hitter because of the injury.

Tebow said the decision made sense to him.

Major League Baseball has its fair share of superstars - Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Mike Trout Bryce Harper, just to name a few. Tebow said that was not his focus right now.

He will return to minor-league camp, but could still get a callup during the season if he improves enough.

"It's not like I'm surprised", Tebow told reporters.

General manager Sandy Alderson said last month that he has a "modest expectation" that Tebow will make it to the majors. "It's a long-term mindset with a hear-and-now focus".

NY also reassigned right-hander Kevin McGowan to the minor league camp on Tuesday and optioned right-handers Gerson Bautista, Marcos Molina, Jamie Callahan and Corey Oswalt to minor league affiliates.
