Tim Tebow invited to Mets spring training for second straight year

The New York Mets again have formally invited Tim Tebow to join the team for spring training in St. Lucie, Florida, it was announced Friday.

After spending a year in the minor leagues, Tim Tebow will soon find out if he can hold his own against big-league competition.

By receiving an invite to major league camp, Tebow can compete for a spot on either the Mets' 25-man Opening Day roster or 40-man roster so he could be added to the MLB team due to injury or poor performance at any point in the season.

No matter: The telegenic former Heisman Trophy victor will once again be the most scrutinized player in camp as his quixotic bid to forge a career in baseball resumes. His athleticism is impressive, complete with good speed and raw power, yet he struggles with the finer aspects of playing ball - hence his.656 OPS across Single- and High-A.

Although Tebow drew large numbers at games past year, his numbers on the field were less impressive. He slashed.226/.309/.347 while recording eight home runs and 52 RBIs over 126 games between the two leagues.

The 2018 season will be Tebow's second full season in professional baseball.
