New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow was recently injured after tripping over a sprinkler head. The 30-year-old outfielder, who the Mets believe can make it to the Big Leagues, missed the first two spring training games.

He sprained his ankle in the incident, according to New York Times’ James Wagner. Tebow is expected to participate in batting practice with the team on Sunday.

They do not believe this will be a serious injury, as they are listing him as day-to-day. He has had his ankle taped during batting practice.

Tebow is attempting to make the Big League roster, as he is in their major-league camp, as a non-roster player. With Single-A last season, he had a .226 batting average with eight home runs and 24 doubles, along with 126 strikeouts, in 126 games.

Tebow signed with the Mets last season after giving up his football aspirations. This will be his first full season as a professional baseball player.

Tebow is expected to play in Grapefruit League action soon. Mets GM Sandy Alderson said he believes Tebow could make it up to the Big Leagues one day.

“My goal isn’t about, what’s going to happen one day,” Tebow said of Alderson’s comment, according to MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo. “My goal is to focus on this day — our outfield work, my training session, getting to know all our coaches, and working as hard as I can. I think one of the important things about being an athlete is being able to lock in and have tunnel vision because I can’t worry about one day if I’m going to play in the bigs or not.

“I got into this because I love it because I’m passionate about it. For me, it’s being able to lock in and have tunnel vision regardless of what team I’m on. Wherever they decide to put me, I’m going to be able to lock in and give it everything I have.”

Tebow last played in the NFL with the New York Jets in 2012. He also was the quarterback of the Denver Broncos from 2010 to 2011.
