The spring training edition of Tebow Time isn't over after all.
Just a few days after New York Mets manager Terry Collins said it was unlikelyTim Tebow would play any more Grapefruit League games, the former Heisman winner-turned-minor leaguer was surprisingly brought back to big-league camp. Tebow will start in left field and bat eighth Monday when the Mets host the Miami Marlins, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.
Tebow was spotted in the Mets' dugout wearing his familiar No. 15, a departure from the No. 97 he wore in his previous appearances that was more befitting of his minor-league status.

Tebow's first spring training in his much publicized attempt to become a baseball player following the end of his brief NFL career has probably not gone as he'd envisioned. The 29-year-old went 0-for-7 with three strikeouts in a pair of spring games last week, and was widely ridiculed after mistakenly warming up in the wrong on-deck circle. He also exchanged words with an umpire following a called strikeout in his first game.
