Tim Tebow cut by Mets, sent down to minor league camp

Tim Tebow cut by Mets, sent down to minor league camp”

The former Heisman Trophy victor, who has been bothered by a sprained left ankle for much of spring training, was among the players demoted to minor league camp Tuesday in the first wave of cuts. That dropped his spring training average to.056 (1-for-18) with 11 strikeouts. The 30-year-old will play in minor league games while the Mets analyze which level he should play at in 2018.

"I'll just continue to work in all the areas we've been working and making progress".

"It's not like it's a shock", Tebow said, laughing.

Tebow's only hit was a hard single to centre off Washington's Erick Fedde on March 2.

"The ankle was kind of disappointing".

Tebow said Mets officials encouraged him to keep working on his weaknesses. "It's got be on every day in the process", Tebow said. "Just having the long-term mindset with a here-and-now focus, and that is something I have had my entire baseball time and I will continue to do that". Of course, the Mets can still borrow Tebow from minor league camp, as they did often past year.

He said being in a major league clubhouse for the first time was rewarding.

He will return to minor-league camp, but could still get a callup during the season if he improves enough.
