With Opening Day 16 days away, the Mets made their third round of Spring Training roster cuts on Tuesday.
Right-handed pitchers Paul Sewald and Jacob Rhame have been optioned to minor league camp, and Arquimedes Caminero, Andrés Giménez, Dilson Herrera, Rymer Liriano, Ali Sánchez and Tim Tebow have all been reassigned to minor league camp.
None of the players cut from camp on Tuesday were in contention for spots on the roster, and many are expected to begin the season with Triple-A Syracuse -- including Tebow.
Gimenez, one of the Mets' top prospects, is expected to begin the season with Double-A Binghamton.
The latest round of cuts, which brings the number of players in big league camp down to 42, comes after right-handed pitchers Corey Oswalt and Walter Lockett were both optioned to minor league camp on Monday.
