JUPITER, Fla. – Former Florida Gator and NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is set to make his Grapefruit League debut this week with the New York Mets.

Tebow is expected to play Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox.

The Mets signed Tebow to a minor-league deal.

He's getting a taste of spring ball with the big league this week because the Mets are losing 11 players to the World Baseball Classic.
