New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday he believes Tim Tebow will play in the majors.
Alderson made the comments after a workout at the Mets spring training facility in Port St. Lucie, Fla., putting some pressure on the quarterback-turned-outfielder in his second full season as a professional.
“Somebody asked me whether I think he’ll be a major league player at some point,” Alderson said. “I think he will play in the major leagues. That’s my guess. That’s my hope, and to some extent now after a year and a half, a modest expectation.”
Tebow spent all of 2017 in the minor leagues and did not play above Class A Advanced, which is where most of the novice minor league baseball players start out.
