Alderson: I Think Tebow Will Play In Majors One Day

Shortly after announcing the signing of left-hander Jason Vargas on Sunday, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson fielded questions about minor leaguer Tim Tebow.

Alderson said that he expects Tebow to one day make it to the Show and has modest expectations for the outfielder after having it start off as an experiment.

“I think he will play in the major leagues,” he said. “That is my guess, that is my hope. After a year and a half, that’s a modest expectation.”

Jon Heyman of Fan Rag Sports said that Tebow could play at Double-A Binghamton this season.

Tebow hit .220/.311/.336 with 14 doubles, three home runs (including one in his first at-bat), 23 RBI and 69 strikeouts in 64 games for Columbia to start the season.

After his promotion to High-A St. Lucie Tebow got off to a hot start with a .884 OPS in his first month. His final slash line in St. Lucie was .231/.307/.356 with ten doubles and five home runs in 216 at-bats.
