The Mets cut the Heisman victor from their MLB camp roster Tuesday, MLB.com reported.

In his first full season in the Mets' minor leagues a year ago, Tebow hit.226 with eight home runs, 52 R.B.I. and 126 strikeouts in 126 games.

The former NFL quarterback and 2007 Heisman Trophy victor hit.056 (1 for 18) with 11 strikeouts in seven big league exhibition games.

Tebow, an outfielder, can appear in games for NY but would have to be brought over from the minor league side. Tebow is among those listed on the travel squad to face the Marlins on Wednesday, but indicated he hasn't been told for sure he is still going.

"It's not like it's a shock", Tebow said, laughing. "But I got to put in a lot of good work and I am feeling I am improving, so that is good".

Earlier in spring training, Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson praised Tebow's work ethic, power, and his positive influence on teammates and minor league baseball as a whole.
