Mets GM: Yes, he thinks Tebow will play in majors

And when asked about Tebow's future with the organization, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told MLB.com's Anthony Dicomo, "I think he will play in the major leagues'".

Tebow said he learned from his first full year in baseball. More than five years after his National Football League career effectively ended, Tebow is 18 months into a professional baseball career that has gone from whimsical to legitimate.

It's the first time Alderson has been that definitive about his anticipation of the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback's future, but he is pleased with the progress Tebow has made since the team signed him on September 8, 2016. McMahon specifically said in a press conference that Tim Tebow is a player they'd want to join the XFL.

As it stands, Tebow is in big league camp with the New York Mets, and is expected to stay there for the next six weeks. Alderson said the club eyed Vargas, an All-Star with Kansas City last season who also tied for the major league lead with 18 wins, from the start. He's great for the team, he's great for baseball. "He made progress on the field, he's dedicated himself to improvement, he spent a lot of time in the offseason, working with hitting coaches and so forth, a lot of time".

"I got into this because I love it, because I'm passionate about it".

"My goal isn't about what's going to happen one day", Tebow said.

Tebow has worked to improve his swing, looking for more lift and becoming freer with his hands and more athletic.

"For me, it was going into the offseason and knowing what I had to work on. You don't have to go compete that night, so that makes it a little bit easier to sink in".

But this is still a major step forward for a baseball player who had not stepped foot on a diamond in a decade when he started working out several years back.

Tebow said there were plenty of up and down moments past year. That, and not the publicity or merchandise sales, is the reason that Tebow is in big league camp this spring despite hitting just.226/.309/.347 with eight homers as a 30-year-old between Class-A Columbia and High-A St. Lucie. But he brings a name and a following and a presence, and the teams that employ him have benefited from this financially.

New Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Tebow will have every opportunity to succeed. "One of the important things about being an athlete is being able to lock in and have tunnel vision".
