Tim Tebow will be starting the new year with class. The player will begin the 2019 baseball season in Class AAA, according to a source. Moreover, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen of the New York Mets is not hiding the fact that the 31-year-old may get a chance in the majors.

Early in November, Mets’ new GM announced that Tebow would be with the Class AAA Syracuse Mets to start the new season. He also reaffirmed in an interview early this December that the former Heisman Trophy winner is just “one step away.” While Class AAA is indeed a step away from the major leagues, USA Today reveals that it was unexpected to see Van Wagenen so incredibly optimistic about Tebow’s chances.

On air at WFAN radio, Van Wagenen said, “If Tim Tebow is the best offensive player in Triple-A at that point, he’s going to be in (manager Mickey Callaway’s) lineup.” The New York Mets general manager had formerly represented Tim Tebow as his CAA Baseball agent.

According to USA Today, Tebow batted .273 with six homers and 36 RBI in 84 games in 2018 for Class AA Binghamton before he received an injury. The player broke the hamate bone in his right hand and required surgery, which cut his season short in July. He hit .301 in June and was batting .340 in July before the injury.

If the season started today, Michael Conforto, Juan Lagares and Brandon Nimmo would be on the Mets’ starting outfield as Tebow is not currently on the team’s 40-man roster, USA Today reports.

Tim Tebow is so close to the majors Van Wagenen can apparently almost taste it. Do you think he’ll be better at baseball than football?
