PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow was reassigned to minor league camp by the New York Mets after going 1 for 8 in spring training with his first extra-base hit in four years. The 32-year-old outfielder and former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback homered against Detroit's Alex Wilson on Feb. 25. He also had three walks.

Tebow has a .147 average in four spring trainings with the Mets. He batted .163 in 77 games last season at Triple-A Syracuse in his second straight injury-shortened season.
