PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Tim Tebow is back – and only one step from the majors.
The outfielder and former NFL quarterback reported to camp with position players due Saturday, and set to speak to the media.
The plan is for Tebow to begin the year in the minors, likely Class AAA, although general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has noted Tebow is only a step away from the majors.
Tebow hit .273 with a .734 OPS last season with Class AA Binghamton in his second full season in the minors, playing in the Eastern League All-Star Game.
He suffered a broken bone in his hand in July that held him out for the remainder of the season.
