  • New York Mets Tim Tebow takes batting practice before a spring training baseball game against the Miami Marlins in Port St. Lucie Fla. Tebow will attend major league spring training with the Mets. The 30

The next step in Tim Tebow's baseball journey came on Friday when it was announced he received an invite to Major League camp with the New York Mets for spring training. His athleticism is impressive, complete with good speed and raw power, yet he struggles with the finer aspects of playing ball - hence his.656 OPS across Single- and High-A.

At the start of 2017, Tebow was assigned to the Columbia Fireflies, the Mets' Class-A affiliate.

He was 4 for 27 (.148) with no extra-base hits, one walk and eight strikeouts in nine.

After 64 games in Columbia, Tebow was promoted to the St. Lucie Mets.

Kim also revealed she is already missing her short hair, admitting she is "so indecisive" when it comes to style choices. Over the past year, there have been lots of vague reports that Kanye West is working on new music.


Other non-roster invitees to Mets camp are first baseman Peter Alonso, third baseman David Thompson, infielder Phil Evans, outfielders Kevin Kaczmarski and Zach Borenstein, catchers Patrick Mazeika and Jose Lobaton and pitchers Matt Purke, Drew Smith, Corey Taylor, Adonis Uceta and P.J. Conlon.

In his first full minor league season past year, Tebow hit.226/.309/.347 with eight home runs in 126 games between Low-A Columbia and High-A St. Lucie. As spring training progresses and opening day grows closer, teams cut players from major league spring training and reassign them to the minor league edition.

They probably won't cut him too quickly, though.
