Tim Tebow's big league baseball hopes are temporarily on hold while he heals from a left ankle sprain he sustained when he tripped over a sprinkler head in the outfield.

Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson said he thinks Tebow has a good shot at playing in the majors despite turning 31 in August. The ankle hasn't affected his power, as he has launched several long home runs during batting practice in recent days.

The New York Mets outfielder and former Heisman Trophy victor tripped on a sprinkler head in the outfield and sprained his ankle, an injury he said happened early last week.

Tebow, in his first major league camp, is hardly the only Mets player hurting: Dominic Smith has a strained right quadriceps from running the bases, and will receive an MRI exam on Monday.

That plan isn't changing even though major-league outfielders Juan Lagares (hamstring), Jay Bruce (foot) and Michael Conforto (shoulder surgery) are also out. The plan has always been for the 30-year-old outfielder to begin the season with the Mets' Double-A affiliate in Binghamton, N.Y.

That didn't stop Mantle, who was 19 at the time, from going on to a Hall of Fame career as the best switch-hitter to play the game.
