A left-handed hitting outfielder, he batted.235 (4-for-17) with five strikeouts in six spring training games this year, after hitting.194 (12-for-62) with eight walks, 20 strikeouts and two RBIs in last year's Arizona Fall League. Mets GM Sandy Alderson said having Tebow play every day is the most important thing for the former National Football League quarterback.
After his performance in spring training, where can we expect to see Tebow? Tebow has four hits (all singles) in 17 at-bats this spring in the Grapefruit League - which is actually kind of impressive - but it remains hard to envision the college football analyst playing well enough to advance this pro baseball experiment beyond Low-A ball. What he wants is to improve.
The 29-year-old Tebow announced last summer he would pursue a professional baseball career despite having not played since his junior year of high school in 2005. "I'm sure he'll be a great influence on the kids in Columbia and the fans will enjoy watching him play". "We've got lots of room for lots of players at lots of different levels".

It wasn't so much about Handscomb's runs as the minutes and balls he soaked up in a game-changing partnership with Shaun Marsh. Kohli's declaration ensured that his bowlers could have a few overs while the Australians' minds were worn out .
Barring anything unforeseen, Tebow will wear his number 15 jersey when he steps on the field for the Fireflies. He started 11 games for the Broncos in 2011 and led Denver to an AFC West Division title and a playoff victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild card round - a game that ended with Tebow throwing an 80-yard touchdown strike to Demaryius Thomas in overtime.
For all the distractions Tebow has supposedly brought to camp, he's shown some ability to play. By the way, we have lots of players in our organization who are just that: organizational players. Single-A professional baseball is the third rung of the minor leagues.
