After getting a cup of coffee with the New York Mets during spring training, Tim Tebow has learned his fate for the upcoming 2017 season. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson announced on Monday that Tebow will begin the season with the Columbia Fireflies, the Mets’ Low-A affiliate.
“Sending him to a full season club is what we hoped to be able to do,” Alderson told Newsday. “And based on what he’s done in spring training, and his whole body of work since last fall, we feel comfortable with him going to Columbia.”
Tebow has appeared in seven games for the Mets this spring and is hitting .235 at the plate. Possibly the biggest highlight for Tim was this amazing diving catch on March 13.
