Tim Tebow Starting Again for the Mets
The New York Mets will have Tim Tebow in the lineup for their spring training game against the Miami Marlins after manager Terry Collins said there were no plans to bring back the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner. Collins has since changed his mind from Friday after making the announcement Monday.
The Mets needed players because of the World Baseball Classic and multiple split-squad games and decided to have Tebow join them from their minor league camp. The former NFL quarterback will play left field and bat eighth. In two starts last week, Tebow was hitless in seven at-bats. He reached base once when he was hit in the shoulder by a pitch.
