The Tim Tebow show hasn't been canceled, in fact, the New York Mets envision a future where the former NFL quarterback plays in the majors.

"The person that he is, the worker he is, those are the kind of people you want around," manager Mickey Callaway told reporters on Sunday. "We're going to evaluate Tim Tebow just as we would anybody else. Tim Tebow is here because he can potentially help us at the major-league level at some point. He wouldn't be here otherwise."

Callaway isn't alone in his assertion, either.

"I think he will play in the major leagues," general manager Sandy Alderson told MLB.com's Anthony DiComo.

Tebow, meanwhile, has been putting in work since arriving camp in Port St. Lucie:

The 30-year-old told reporters that while playing in the majors is the goal, he's not putting the cart before the horse.

"One of the important things of being an athlete is being able to lock in and have tunnel vision," Tebow said. "Because I can't worry about one day if I'm going to play in the bigs or not."

Through 126 games across two levels of Single-A in 2017, Tebow hit .226/.309/.347 with eight home runs, 24 doubles, and 52 RBIs while striking out once per game.
