This is Tebow's third season playing professional baseball.
Since abandoning his career as an NFL quarterback to join the Mets, Tebow's appeared in 210 minor-league games across three levels.
When asked last week by WFAN's Mike Francesa if he expects to be in the big leagues this season, Tebow said: "The goal is to be able to improve every day and be ready if I have the opportunity".
While Tebow won't be starting the year at the major league level, it's certainly possible he ends up with the Mets at some point during the 2019 season, especially in September when the rosters expand.
