You might have heard of one of them.

It was not too far fetched to believe Tebow would have gotten the call-up last season were it not for an injury that put the outfielder on the shelf for an extended period of time. The 2007 Heisman Trophy victor out of the University of Florida went 4 for 15 with no extra-base hits in 18 plate appearances during spring training. "But we have a lot of great coaches here", said Tebow to reporters, including Tim Healey of Newsday, when asked about Canseco's offer Tuesday.

Among the Mets players scheduled to work out on the Carrier Dome turf are opening day starter Jacob deGrom, Robinson Cano and Noah Syndergaard. He just won't begin the season in the majors.

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. "If not, either way, I'm going to continue working as hard as I can to be the best that I can".

Timmy batted.267 (4-for-15) in Grapefruit League play and will look to build off a successful season at Double-A Binghamton in 2018, where he slashed slashed.273/.336/.399 with six home runs in 84 games. "One day it's good enough to do that, that would be really fun".
