The Mets announced the news on Twitter Friday morning.

Tebow, who won the Heisman Trophy while playing college football for Florida, has been shuffling around the minor leagues ever since signing with the Mets in September of 2016.
He last played with the St. Lucie Mets of the Florida State League at the single-A level.
He hit five home runs in 216 batting attempts in the past season. Those aren’t exactly eye-popping numbers, but Tebow has major draw when it comes to selling merchandise and tickets.
That alone could see Tebow get promoted at some point this upcoming season.
