The Mets cut the Heisman victor from their MLB camp roster Tuesday, MLB.com reported.

- Tim Tebow was reassigned by the New York Mets to their minor league camp on Tuesday after he went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts in an exhibition against the Houston Astros.

Tebow, 30, hit.056 in the Grapefruit League and struck out 11 times in 19 plate appearances. "They have been super honest the whole time". Of course, the Mets can still borrow Tebow from minor league camp, as they did often a year ago. Tebow is among those listed on the travel squad to face the Marlins on Wednesday, but indicated he hasn't been told for sure he is still going.

Tebow cited his ankle as something that hindered him during camp. I got to put in a lot of good work and feel like I'm improving.


Tebow is expected to begin the season at Double-A Binghamton after splitting last season between Single-A Columbia and High-A St. Lucie.

Awful news for Mets fans hoping to see Tim Tebow do nothing in the batter's box this spring: he's been reassigned to minor league camp.

"It's definitely the goal, and we'll be putting in work every day to one day get that opportunity, but you can't just be focused on the end result".

Tim Tebow is on his way back to the minor leagues.
