Mets outfield prospect Tim Tebow, who is playing in the Double-A All-Star Game on Wednesday night, said he still has room to grow.

"I know as a baseball player, I have a lot of room to grow," Tebow said. "I know I'm not even close to where I want to be."

While the 30-year-old Tebow might actually, implausibly, have a chance to play for the Mets later this season, it's not something he's focusing on.

Danny Abriano, SNY.tv | TwitterMets minor league outfielder Tim Tebow is a Double-A All Star, and what started as a sideshow a few years ago has actually turned kind of serious.

The 30-year-old Tebow hit over. 300 in June and is hitting .266/.336/.396 overall this season. Whether you consider him an actual prospect or not (most experts do not), what he's done after not playing baseball for about a decade has been incredibly impressive.

In that vein, while his baseball stint during his break from the NBA has been crushed by many, Michael Jordan impressed some scouts and his coaches when he was with the White Sox in the minors in 1994. So, who was the better baseball player: Tebow or Jordan? And would Jordan have made it to the majors had he kept pushing?

Mets prospect Tim Tebow has had himself quite the month of June. 

The former NFL quarterback turned baseball player has enjoyed success at the plate, with his June slash line at .318/.357/.455 entering Friday night. His success has even earned him a Double-A All-Star Game bid as well as some wanting him to get the call to the big leagues, including former Yankee Johnny Damon.

Though Tebow admitted it's a great honor to be given the nod to his first All-Star Game, he knows there is still work that needs to be done to reach the ultimate goal: Making it to the bigs.

In 11 years experiencing Mets spring training, I have never seen dozens of human beings react to another person the way people reacted to Tim Tebow on Sunday. And, though I don't believe he'll ever see a pitch in the Major Leagues, I like that he's in big-league camp because I think just as much can be gained from his personality, positivity, and passion as can be gained from him as a player.

1B Peter Alonso (23 years old, ETA: 2019)

He's a right-handed first baseman, at the plate and in the field, which is going to always be a strike against him as he works his way toward the big leagues. The thing is, he makes true contact, hits to all fields and has a powerful swing. He's easy to notice. In fact, teams in contact with the Mets this winter had a lot of questions about Alonso, who was recently ranked by MLB.com as the seventh-best first base prospect in baseball.

Tim Tebow on having a platform 00:01:21
St. Lucie Mets outfielder Tim Tebow talks about using his platform to help others.

Mets minor-league outfielder Tim Tebow recently told reporters in St. Lucie that he plans to return to the Mets organization next season, though he is not sure what to expect beyond 2018.

To date, through 123 career games, including a 19-game stint in the Arizona Fall League at the end of 2016, the 29-year-old Tebow hit .222 with eight home runs and 51 RBI during what was his first season playing baseball since high school.

Tebow hit an impressive .315 with a .400 OBP and .522 slugging during his first 28 games after being promoted to Single-A St. Lucie. He then struggled, batting only .120 with 32 strikeouts during his next 100 at bats. He also struggled against left-handed pitching. And, his .664 OPS in the Florida State League was 16 points below the league average, according to a recent article by ESPN.com.

"He always takes good at-bats," Michael Conforto told the Daily News in June after playing a rehab assignemnt with Tebow "He's got a good eye, he doesn't chase, and I think really that's half the battle in the game of baseball as far as being a good hitter."

"It's still something we're figuring out, but for me it'll be a lot of training," he said Thursday via the AP. "For me it'll be about working on training and building the muscle-memory where I can do it for two, five, seven days and continue to build a couple of weeks at a time."

ESPN analyst Keith Law watched Mets OF Tim Tebow during this year's Arizona Fall League and left feeling the former NFL quarterback should never play baseball again.

"I think Tim Tebow should stick to announcing," Law said on an ESPN conference call. "He was the worst player I've ever seen in the 10 years I've been going to the Arizona Fall League"

The Mets announced in early January that Tebow would not be among the 13 minor leaguers invited to participate in this year's big league Spring Training.

Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow considered sticking with football, but instead chose baseball to take on a new challenge, he told ESPN's 'First Take" on Tuesday.

"I wanted to do something I wanted to do, that would be fun for me, a challenge for me," Tebow told host Max Kellerman. "That's why I chose to pick up a baseball bat."

Tebow, who signed a $100,000 contract to join the Mets this past summer, hit .194 with a .296 OBP, no home runs, three doubles and 20 strikeouts in 19 games during October's Arizona Fall League.

"At a certain point, it's not about what other people want you to do it's about what you want to do," he reitterated to Kellerman, parroting a line he frequently used during his book tour last November. "It's your life, not everybody else's life. I could go play football at another position, but why settle. Life isn't about settling, life is about striving."

The Mets haven't decided whether OF Tim Tebow will be invited to play in big league games during Spring Training, GM Sandy Alderson said Tuesday.

"That's a decision we'll make some time in the near future," Alderson said, adding that there's "no benefit" to having him in big league camp.

Mets manager Terry Collins said earlier Tuesday that Tebow would play for the Mets during Grapefruit League games this spring, even if he's in minor-league camp

However, late last month, Tebow would not say if he plans to attend Spring Training.

The guerrilla-style media entity TmZ caught up with Giants' co-owner Steve Tisch as he was getting into his car in LA this weekend. Tisch believes that LB Aaron Curry could become a "game-changer" for the Giants. In an unfair question about Tim Tebow, Tisch responded by taking the high road....

From TmZ.com:

The New York Jets DESTROYED any chance Tim Tebow had to be a successful QB in the NFL ... this according to NY Giants co-owner Steve Tisch.

"I think him going from the Broncos to the Jets was not in anybody's best interest," Tisch told TMZ on his way out of Dan Tana's in L.A. Sunday night.

The NFL will release its schedule tonight at 8 p.m. In honor of this annual occasion in which we mark our calendars and cancel plans in advance of the fall, here are the games we're looking forward the most in 2013.

1. Denver Broncos

It's not a question the most intriguing game of the 2013 schedule will be the Manning Bowl, pinning up brother against brother in one of the league's most cherished match-ups.

Adam Schefter is a hard-working NFL beat reporter, probably the best at what he does. Nothing goes down in this league without him knowing about it. His above tweet states the obvious on Tebow, and the unspoken about Cruz.

Tebow is a man without a position. He isn't an NFL QB, and it would be a mistake to try him at another position. The NFL is not the place for entry-level candidates. The Jets are going to have to release Tebow. It's sad, but almost everyone but the Jets saw this coming....

Woody Johnson and the rest of the NFL owners are in Phoenix this week for league meetings and when asked about the 2012 backup quarterback and his status with the Jets, Woody Johnson didn't give any direct answers on the matter according to Manish Mehta, "we?re looking at all possibilities with [Tebow]. We?ll see what the offseason [brings]."

I know it's seems silly, but I really think it comes down to trying to move him via trade to save cap space. ?Tebow is on the books for $2.6 million in 2013. ?Should they cut him, they save about a million dollars, should they trade him, they save most of that full cap figure. ?It doesn't seem like much, but when the Jets are pinching pennies with potential starters like OLB Antwan Barnes, then we have to expect that they are going to do everything they can to save all the cap space they can for the 2013 season.

But just because the Jets want to trade Tebow doesn't mean they will be able to do so. ?This meeting in Phoenix might represent one of the last best chances between now and the draft to move Tebow. ?The foregone conclusion is that there is zero chance that Tebow returns with the Jets in 2012. ?Based on the way Rex Ryan avoided (like the plague) playing #15 at quarterback, it's hard to imagine that they would bring him back if the team's coach doesn't think him competent to play his own position. ?Maybe the Jets will shock the world and have come up with plans to actually let him compete for the starting job in 2013, but it seems so far-fetched at this point. ?Sooner or later the team will cut him, but they sure are taking their time to do so.

There's been a lot of speculation about the release of Kevin Kolb by the Cardinals that he will most likely end up in New York. ?Kansas City would be closed to him, as Reid already got his man in Alex Smith a few weeks ago, so the Jets do logically represent a smart fit. ?Kolb returns to the coordinator he knows in Marty Morhinweg and the Jets round out their roster with a backup who already knows the system. ?A potential win-win.

Garrard has been told he'll have a chance to challenge for a starting job, but that's a tough one to believe, he's taken two years to get healthy, and hasn't played in the NFL for far too long for a 35 year old to jump into a new system with the Jets. ?Tim Tebow won't be with the team at some point soon ... from what we hear the Jets are doing their best to trade him to get the cap relief a trade would offer ... but it is obviously not going so well. ?McElroy's status with the team seems up in the air, but he might have made it tough to get a serious shot after not disclosing his concussion during the Chargers game. ?Mark Sanchez might make a focused run to retain his job and he seems like the one with the inside track on the starting job ... but Kolb would represent the best challenge to Sanchez that the Jets might be able to hastily muster on the cheap for the 2013 season.

Kolb had Larry Fitzgerald, but he didn't have much else. ?Kolb's terrible run in Arizona was rife with issues due to a porous offensive line that couldn't protect him, a backfield that spends more time in the shop than the street and not much else. ?According to Football Outsiders, the line ranked 26th in 2011 and 27th in 2012 in pass protection. ?Not easy for any QB. ?The Jets have historically ranked better at pass protection, but took a huge statistical dip in their protection stats after the Chargers game in which McElroy should not have been playing after his concussion. ?Also, Mark Sanchez didn't do his line any favors by his sheer refusal to get rid of the ball quickly in the Sparano NOffense.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ? The affable, somewhat sarcastic, always approachable Nick Bellore is a marked man in the Jets locker room.

Bellore and his beard

For 22 days now, the Jets linebacker has been the target of his teammates as part of the ?No Shave November? fad as he has been growing a beard and has refused to touch his burgeoning growth. Now itchy and thick, Bellore needs to endure a little more than a week before he can think about trimming let alone shaving the beard. It is a burden he feels he carries for the Jets team because of the sheer awesomeness of his facial hair.
