Mets invite Tim Tebow to spring training

The former NFL quarterback is slated to appear with the Mets during spring training this year, extending what initially looked like an ill-fated career choice for at least one more season. Per the club’s official announcement on Friday, he’ll join a group of spring training invitees that includes top-30 prospects like Peter Alonso, P.J. Conlon, Patrick Mazeika and David Thompson.

MLB notebook: Mets invite Tebow to spring training

Tim Tebow received a formal invite to spring training from the New York Mets. Tebow made it to Class A with the Mets last season. "Almost every day there's something I've never been through before that you're learning, whether it's something on base or something in the outfield or something at the plate," said the 30-year-old Tebow, who split his time between the outfield and designated hitter spots.

Mets will soon wish they inked deGrom to a contract extension

Jacob deGrom will reportedly earn $7.4 million this season after he and the Mets avoided arbitration and agreed earlier this month to a one-year contract. This is a bargain for a guy that has already won Rookie of the Year, pitched in the All Star Game, is 3-1 with a 2.88 ERA in the postseason, has made 107 career starts, has a 3.07 career ERA, and set a career-high for wins, strikeouts, and innings pitched last season. I bet Jake is better this coming season than he was in 2017, if for no other reason than Mickey Callaway and Dave Eiland almost certainly will have a positive impact on him. "I enjoyed my time playing for Terry, but I'm excited to see what somebody else brings to the table," deGrom

Former Mets and Braves exec Adam Fisher discusses Smith, Bruce

Former Mets and Braves executive Adam Fisher, who left the Braves earlier this offseason amidst their front office upheaval, was on Mets Hot Stove on SNY on Thursday night to discuss the team's acquisition of Jay Bruce, and how the Adrian Gonzalez signing might impact Dominic Smith. Fisher, who had been serving as the Mets' director of baseball operations before joining the Braves, said one of the reasons the Mets brought Bruce back was because "he showed the Mets that he had the character to succeed in this city." "One of the biggest challenges for a front office in this market is figuring out who has the makeup and character to succeed here," Fisher said. "There were questions about whether

Rumors, notes and ideas, and what’s next for the Mets

There are 24 days until Mets pitchers and catchers are required to report to Port St. Lucie for the official start of Spring Training. That said, Yoenis Cespedes, Amed Rosario, Juan Lagares, Wilmer Flores, and several pitchers are already in town working out at the team's complex... In the meantime, the Mets are reportedly still in the market to acquire one more position player, which will likely be a free-agent infielder signed to a guaranteed contract. I've heard Sandy Alderson can spend roughly $10 million more on new talent this winter, though that number could be more depending on the player. As I explained yesterday, at this point, I think more can be gained from signing a reliable free
