Tim Tebow sent to minors, will start season with Syracuse Mets

Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow won't open the season with the Mets, but he'll begin 2019 just a step away from the majors.

The New York Mets' Triple-A affiliate, previously known as the Chiefs and the top minor league affiliate of the Washington Nationals, announced the name change last fall.

According to MLB.com, the Mets also optioned pitchers Jacob Rhame and Paul Sewald to their minor league camp and reassigned infielder Andres Gimenez (their second-ranked prospect), pitcher Arquimedes Caminero, catcher Ali Sanchez, utility man Dilson Herrera and outfielder Rymer Liriano to the minors.

Tebow says that he's never actually been to Syracuse, but he's looking forward to the opportunity.

"Yeah, I think I will".

Tim Tebow may still someday play in the major leagues. The 31-year-old slashed.273/.336/.399 with six home runs in 84 games, improving his OPS by almost 80 points from his first minor league campaign before his season ended in late July with a broken bone in his hand.

Tebow's spring camp went relatively well, the lefty finishing 4-of-15 (.267) with an RBI, a season after a broken hamate bone in his right hand prematurely ended his run.

And if he joins the Mets at some point this season ...
