Mets' Alderson convinced Tebow to return for 2021 season

Mets' Alderson convinced Tebow to return for 2021 season”

"I think that the organization has already benefitted significantly from his involvement with the Mets and his pursuit of a baseball career", Alderson said.

The Mets hope their first foray into talent acquisition under new owner Steve Cohen isn't a harbinger of things to come.

And that was partially due to the candidates Alderson has interviewed so far for the position endorsed bringing back Rojas for another year. Instead, their search is for a GM. So I think Tim is committed to coming back.

Former Marlins president Michael Hill interviewed with the Mets for a potential president of baseball ops job earlier this month. "He's very open to that". "It's not as if this is a unilateral decision on my part or the existing organization". We've actually talked through this with the candidates to be the GM and generally got agreement that in this particular case that was the right thing to do. "Not that they were going to make the decision for us, but the issue has been broached and I'm comfortable this isn't a shotgun marriage that will occur".

The revelation comes after club President Sandy Alderson encouraged the 33-year-old Tebow to come back and not let the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the spring and subsequent cancellation of the minor league baseball season end the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner's four-year climb through the ranks of professional baseball. As I said, this is not something that will go on forever. "We look forward to putting in the work and making our fans proud". There were many reasons the Mets underachieved, with injuries playing a big role, but Rojas' in-game management was sound while players continuously spoke highly of him on and off the field.
