After his performance in spring training, where can we expect to see Tebow?

It seems like the New York Mets can’t get enough of Tim Tebow.

After saying twice this spring training that Tebow’s stint in big-league camp was over, they have reversed course. Again.

And Tebow recorded an opposite-field single in his first at bat against St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha off of a 95 mph fastball. He struck out looking in his second at-bat on three pitches, and grounded out to the pitcher in his final plate appearance. Tebow played left field, where he made a running catch on a long fly ball, and batted seventh.

The former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner came off his most impressive performance, a two-hit effort and a diving catch in right field against the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Tebow is 4-for-17 with five strikeouts in spring training.

After beating the Cardinals 16-2 on Friday, the Mets used a starting lineup that featured nobody projected to start on opening day.

Ironically, Noah Syndergaard, the Mets’ opening day pitcher, took the mound in a minor league game. But for pitchers, it’s all about building up innings and getting a feel for your repertoire.

Robert Gsellman was the starting pitcher against the Cardinals.
