Tim Tebow invited to the New York Mets' spring training team

Tim Tebow invited to the New York Mets' spring training team

That means the Heisman Trophy victor and former NFL quarterback will spend his spring in the big-league clubhouse and play in the games with the major-league players.

It looks like Tim Tebow's major league baseball dreams are very much alive.

Yes, he'll draw extra attention to the Mets, and don't expect Tebow to reach the major-league club.

When he wasn't playing baseball this fall, he was broadcasting for ESPN, serving as an analyst for the SEC Network. The Mets signed him to a minor-league deal, with a $100,000 signing bonus, saying that they would benefit from his character and experience in the clubhouse and possibly find a diamond in the rough. Last June, Mets GM Sandy Alderson all but admitted that the team took a chance on Tebow with an eye toward the bottom line. "My attitude is 'Why not?'"

The Case for and Against Brandywine Realty Trust (BDN)
In the case of Healthcare Realty Trust Incorporated (NYSE:HR), Zacks tracked 12 brokers to create the consensus EPS estimate. The firm has "Buy" rating given on Friday, October 6 by BMO Capital Markets. (NYSE:DLR) has a Value Composite score of 61.

Between Columbia and Port St. Lucie, Tebow hit 226 with eight homers, 52 RBIs and 126 strikeouts in 126 games.

Tebow had some bright spots in his first full season at the minor-league level past year.

By receiving an invite to major league camp, Tebow can compete for a spot on either the Mets' 25-man Opening Day roster or 40-man roster so he could be added to the MLB team due to injury or poor performance at any point in the season.

The Mets' first full-squad workout in Port St. Lucie is scheduled for February 19, with their Grapefruit League opener set for February 23 at home against the Braves.
