Mets GM: Tim Tebow ‘one step away’ from major leagues

USA Today

Tim Tebow will begin the 2019 baseball season in Class AAA, and New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen is making it clear that the 31-year-old may get a chance in the majors.

The Mets' new GM announced early in Novemberthat Tebow would be with the Class AAA Syracuse Chiefs to start the new season and reaffirmed in an interview Wednesday that the former Heisman Trophy winner is just "one step away."

While obviously, yes, Class AAA is technically "one step away" from the majors, it was surprising to hear Van Wagenen so bullish on Tebow's chances. Van Wagenen said that an injury in the major league outfield could open the door for Tebow's promotion.
