Tebow Time is not over yet.
The Mets announced on Thursday that Tim Tebow has been invited to spring training for his fourth season as a baseball player.
Tebow, 32, hit just .163 in 77 games for Triple-A Syracuse last year before a lacerated pinky ended his season in July.
The former Heisman-winning quarterback likely will return to Syracuse this season.
Tebow has hit .223 with 18 home runs, 107 RBIs and 327 strikeouts in 287 games across three minor-league seasons.
The Mets also invited several more traditional prospects to spring training, including 2017 first-round pick David Peterson, a 24-year-old lefthander, and 2019 Mets minor-league pitcher of the year Kevin Smith, a 22-year-old lefthander who struck out 130 in 117 innings for Class A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton.
