The Mets reassigned Tim Tebow to minor league camp yesterday. The move was expected, as Tebow is not on the 40-man roster.

Tebow is likely to play most of his season at Double-A Binghamton. This despite the fact that he didn’t show anything approaching mastery of either level of single-A ball he played last year and despite the fact that he was completely overmatched this spring. Tebow’s demotion came after he went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in an exhibition against the Astros yesterday. Overall he’s 1-for-18 with 11 strikeouts in spring training.

Not that he’s around for his baseball skills.
