Thirteen minor league players were invited, five of them still technically on the Rumble Ponies roster. Tebow is one of 13 non-roster players the Mets will included in their workouts and exhibition games ahead of the 2019 regular season.

During his stint in major-league spring training in 2018, the 31-year-old picked up one hit in 18 at-bats (a.056 average) and had 11 strikeouts and one walk.

Last year, the Heisman Trophy victor and former National Football League quarterback hit.273 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 84 Double-A games before a broken hand ended his season in July.

Spring training starts in a little more than a month.

The New York Mets have officially invited Tebow back to major league spring training for the second straight year, the team announced on Thursday.

Mets' management has been high on Tebow since his arrival into the franchise's farm system.

Tebow, 31, is hoping for better results this time around after going 1 for 18 with 11 strikeouts in seven games during spring training a year ago.

Because he is not on the 40-man roster, Tebow needed an invite to big league camp, which opens February 16. He made the Eastern League All-Star team, but his season ended in July with a broken bone in his right hand. The Mets have bumped Tebow up the minor league ladder consistently due to his advanced age, and Van Wagenen has already stated publicly that Tebow will start 2019 with AAA Syracuse. "You're the love of my life, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you", he wrote.
