Mets prospect Tim Tebow has been named to the Eastern Division All-Star team, the Eastern League of Professional Baseball announced Friday afternoon.

The Eastern League All-Star Game will be played at 7 p.m. on July 11 at Arm & Hammer Park in Trenton, home of the Trenton Thunder, which serves as the Yankees’ Double-A affiliate.

Through Thursday, Tebow was hitting .261 with five home runs and 30 RBIs in 67 games for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, the Mets’ Double-A team. He had hit .318 (21-for-66) with a home run and 11 RBIs in June.

Tebow is one of five Mets prospects from the Rumble Ponies to make the All-Star roster. Pitchers Nabil Crismatt and Daniel Zamora, catcher Patrick Mazeika and infielder Levi Michael also were selected.

Joining Tebow on the Eastern Division All-Star team will be the top two prospects in the Blue Jays’ system, New Hampshire Fisher Cats infielders Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette. New Hampshire infielder Cavan Biggio, tied for the Eastern League lead with 16 home runs through Thursday, also will participate. Biggio is the son of Hall of Fame second baseman and Long Island native Craig Biggio.
