The Mets would "love" to have minor league OF Tim Tebow open the season with Double-A Binghamton if he performs well during Spring Training, reports Jon Heyman of FanRag.
The 30-year-old Tebow received an invite to major league Spring Training earlier this offseason.
He joined the Mets organization in 2016, and played 126 combined games with Low-A Columbia and High-A St. Lucie last season, hitting .226/.309/.347 with eight home runs, 52 RBI, and 126 strikeouts.
And while it's a steep and unlikely hill to climb, Tebow remains focused on reaching the majors.
"The goal is to get to the major leagues, for sure," Tebow said recently during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. "Huge transition, huge obstacle, and of course no one thinks I can do it. But I love trying to prove people wrong, so I'm excited about the challenge.
With Tebow on board, attendance at Low-A Columbia games went up roughly 40 percent last season.
"They show up, so it's cool," Tebow said. "I'm always grateful for the support."
