Tim Tebow Demoted to Minor League Camp by Mets

Tim Tebow

He received plenty of opportunities during his time in the Grapefruit League this spring but failed to make an impact, going 4-for-15 with one RBI, three strikeouts, and zero extra-base hits over eight games.

We've optioned Paul Sewald and Jacob Rhame to minor league camp and re-assigned Arquimedes Caminero, Andrés Giménez, Dilson Herrera, Rymer Liriano, Ali Sánchez and Tim Tebow to minor league camp.

Tebow, 31, and the Syracuse Mets are slated to play both the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees and the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, giving Pa. fans a chance to see him play up close - and they won't have to wait long.

Tebow says he has never been to Syracuse.

In typical Tebow fashion, he took the demotion as a learning experience and with a bunch of optimism, telling reporters how grateful he was for the time he had to learn from New York's more experienced players and coaches.

The Mets on Tuesday reassigned the quarterback-turned-outfielder to their minor league camp.

Syracuse is the new home of the Mets' Triple-A affiliate where Tim Tebow is expected to start the season. The Mets open the regular season on March 28 at Washington against the Nationals.
