The perpetual Tim Tebow watch remains in full effect.

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson chimed in on the former Heisman Trophy winner's performance in Single-A, admitting that many in the organization seem pleased with his development.

"Right now I think he's exceeded a lot of people's expectations," Alderson said Friday, according to Anthony DiComo of

"Right now, I think he's acquitted himself pretty well at Columbia. "We'll see what that competition holds for him over the next period of time, then we'll constantly sort of reassess where he is and what he needs to do. He's fine where he is right now."

Unsurprisingly, Alderson also said that there doesn't appear to be plans for a promotion to New York. The Mets GM visited Columbia Fireflies manager Jose Leger to discuss the possibility, with both agreeing that Tebow still has a lot of work to do.

"I love what I'm doing," Tebow said. "And when you have a chance to love what you do and you're passionate about it, it's fun. You don't wake up and go, 'Man, I've got to go face this day.' You go, 'I'm excited about this day.' And that's a good feeling."

In 24 games with the Fireflies, Tebow has hit .244/.323/.372 with two home runs and nine RBIs. He's also struck out 23 times in 86 at bats.
