Tim Tebow is among the Mets’ first wave of spring training cuts

Tim Tebow’s fourth time in big-league camp concluded on Friday, as the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback was among the club’s first wave of spring cuts, according to MLB.com.

Tebow, 32 and entering his fourth full professional season, appeared in 10 games prior to being reassigned. In those appearances, he racked up 13 at-bats and hit .154/.389/.385 with a home run and nearly as many walks (four) as strikeouts (six). Tebow’s home run, which came off Detroit Tigers right-hander Alex Wilson, was his first he’d hit in any big-league camp.

For those unaccustomed with the at-times complex jargon of baseball transactions, Friday’s reassignment doesn’t carry great significance. Tebow was never going to make the big-league club out of camp, and he isn’t on the 40-man roster, meaning he cannot be “optioned.” All this move signifies is that he’ll be preparing for the season on the minor-league side of things.
