Milwaukee Brewers superstar outfielder Ryan Braun knows a thing or two about succeeding in the big leagues.
While the 36-year-old might not be the hitter he once was, he’s still a six-time National League All-Star who won MVP honors in 2011, when he hit .332 with 33 home runs, 111 RBIs and 33 stolen bases.
So when Braun says he wouldn’t rule out Tim Tebow — the Heisman Trophy winner-turned-NFL-star-turned Mets prospect — appearing in the big leagues in 2020, it means something.
On Thursday, the Mets announced their non-roster spring training invitees, and Tebow was on the list, joining a number of mid- to-high-level prospects.
Mets spring non-roster invitees:
LHP David Peterson, Kevin Smith
RHP Matt Blackham, Ryley Gilliam, Stephen Nogosek, Pedro Payano, Francisco Rios, Adonis Uceta
C Austin Bossart, Patrick Mazeika, David Rodriguez
OF Tim Tebow, Ryan Cordell, Johneshwy Fargas
INF Jake Hager
