CBS Sports: Tebow inching closer to MLB with Double-A assignment

On Monday, CBS Sports reported via MLB.com Mets beat writer Anthony DiComo, that New York OF prospect Tim Tebow will be assigned to Double-A Binghamton to start the 2018 season.

The left-handed hitting Tebow split last season between Low and High A ball. In Low-A Tebow hit .220 with 3 homers and 23 RBI in 64 games. While in St. Lucie, Tebow carried a .231 average while smacking five homers and accumulating 29 RBI.

Tebow has shown flashes of promise and power at the plate, but has had many shortcomings including striking out 126 times in his 430 at-bats last season.

Mets general manager Sandy Anderson stated during the off-season that he wanted to be more aggressive with Tebow’s development and with his promotion to Double-A, Tebow has a real chance to impress the New York brass.

Tebow went 1-11 in Major League Spring Training with the Mets this year before being sent to Minor League camp.

The Rumble Ponies will open the season against Portland on April 5.
