Tebow reassigned to minors by Mets after going 2 for 13





PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) --

Tim Tebow was reassigned to minor league camp by the New York Mets on Friday after going 2 for 13 in spring training with his first extra-base hit in four years.

The 32-year-old outfielder and former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback homered against Detroit's Alex Wilson on Feb. 25. He also had three walks.

Tebow has a .151 average (11 for 73) in four spring trainings with the Mets. After a three-year stint at quarterback in the NFL, he joined the Mets organization in late 2016. He hit .148 (4 for 27) with eight strikeouts during spring training in 2017, .056 (1 for 18) in 2018 and .267 (4 for 15) last year.

He batted .163 in 77 games last season at Triple-A Syracuse in his second straight injury-shortened season. He did not play after July 21 because he cut his left hand while fielding a ball in the outfield. Tebow hit .273 with six home runs, 14 doubles and 36 RBIs in 84 games for Double-A Binghamton in 2018, when his season ended July 18 because of a broken bone in his right hand.

New York also optioned left-handers Stephen Gonsalves and Thomas Szapucki to the minors along with right-handers Jordan Humphreys and Franklyn Kilome.

Right-handers Matt Blackham, Stephen Nogosek, Francisco Ríos and Nick Rumbelow were reassigned to minor league camp along with catchers Austin Bossart and David Rodríguez.
