Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen: Tim Tebow to start season in Triple-A

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen: Tim Tebow to start season in Triple-A New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has stated that Tim Tebow will start the season with Triple-A Syracuse. 

Tim Tebow , struggling in the minors, is not ready to give up on his MLB dream. “I still think there’s still a lot of things that I know I will improve on and know I can improve on and I’m making During spring training, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said he thought Tebow eventually would

Last month, New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen endorsed Tim Tebow.

Tebow had been brought in and promoted in the Mets minor league system under the regime of previous general manager Sandy Alderson, a move widely chided as a publicity stunt to cash in on the popularity of the Heisman Trophy-winning former quarterback.

But Van Wagenen — not a month into his new job — kept up the line, declining to rule out Tebow starting the season on the opening-day roster while calling it likely that he starts next season in Triple-A.

It sounds like Tim Tebow won’t be getting called up to the struggling New York Mets after all. Tebow , currently in Double-A in the Mets organization, is likely done for the season after breaking the hamate bone in his right hand.

Tebow could go to the Arizona Fall League next month or remain in Port St. Lucie. He could be invited to spring training with the Mets in February. He turned 29 last month and has not played baseball since he was an all-state outfielder as a junior at Nease High in Ponte Vedra, Fla., in 2005.

Van Wagenen: OF injury could lead to Tebow callup

On Wednesday, he doubled down, telling WFAN that Tebow could be an injury away from a promotion to Queens.

“If Tim Tebow’s the best offensive player in Triple-A at that point in time, he’s going to be in [manager Mickey Callaway’s] lineup,” Van Wagenen told WFAN.

Van Wagenen was Tebow’s agent

While Tebow’s rise through baseball’s ranks seems one of sports’ least likeliest stories, the latest should come as no surprise considering the players involved.

Van Wagenen is fresh on the scene as a baseball executive. His previous gig was as the co-head of baseball at the Creative Arts Agency, where he represented Tebow.

While he’s sitting on the other side of the table from Tebow now, Van Wagenen still seems of the belief that what’s good for Tebow is good for business.

The good, the bad and the ugly of this potential Robinson Cano to Mets deal

The good, the bad and the ugly of this potential Robinson Cano to Mets deal The Mets appear to be nearing a deal that would bring Robinson Cano and closer Edwin Diaz to Flushing. It may seem like a solid move on paper, but there are some red flags. Let’s take a look: PROS An eight-time All-Star who still knows how to hit, Cano would be a professional hitter with some pop in the Mets lineup. Cano hit .303/.374/.471 with 10 homers and 22 doubles through 348 plate appearances in 2018. That includes a .317/.363/.497 line upon returning from a PED suspension.

Tebow could have been a late-season callup thanks to the Mets ’ inept 2018. If Tebow kept plugging — and he was batting .297 in his last 10 games before the injury — there’s a non-negligible chance a franchise struggling for positive headlines could have called him up to struggle for 10 games to close

Tim Tebow is an ex-football player who signed with the New York Mets to play baseball . After working out for several teams, he showed impressive raw As such, the Mets decided to give up some pocket change to see if he could be good enough to be one of the 330 baseball players employed in their

Tebow’s been a surprise — but is he good enough?

Tebow has exceeded almost any reasonable expectation since making the shift from football to the broadcast booth to baseball. The 31-year-old hit .273/.336/.399 in 298 plate appearances at Double-A in 2018, respectable numbers that Michael Jordan would have coveted during his brief stint in the Chicago White Sox system in the 1990s.

He also tallied six home runs and 36 RBI in 84 games with Binghamton, making the Eastern League All-Star game before a broken hamate bone in July cut his season and any 2018 dreams of Major League Baseball short.

Those aren’t numbers that would warrant a look at any 31-year-old minor leaguer not named Tebow. But Tebow’s not just any other minor leaguer. And the Mets appear intent on getting every bit of value they can from him, whether or not that means success on the field.
