Tebow reassigned to Mets minor league camp

Any thought of Tim Tebow starting the season in the major leagues ended Tuesday when the New York Mets reassigned the former Heisman Trophy victor to the minors.

In other moves Tuesday, the Mets optioned pitchers Paul Sewald and Jacob Rhame to their minor league camp and reassigned pitcher Arquimedes Caminero, outfielder Rymer Liriano, catcher Ali Sanchez and infielders Andres Gimenez and Dilson Herrera.

Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback who was part of two national championship teams at UF, likely will begin the season with Class AAA Syracuse.

Tebow says he has never been to Syracuse.
