In a move that should surprise no one, Tim Tebow’s Grapefruit League debut for the Mets will be a high-profile affair.
Tebow is set to be added to the Mets’ roster for split-squad games Wednesday against the Red Sox and Friday against the Astros, MLB.com reported. Both games will be played at First Data Field in Port St. Lucie.
The break-in happened sometime during the week of Feb. 27 and the LAPD’s Commercial Crimes Division is investigating, police spokeswoman Lillian Preciado said, adding that the dollar value of the stolen property could grow.
Preciado said it wasn’t clear if Puig’s home was targeted. He is in Arizona at spring training, and no one was home at the time of the alleged burglary.
The Times noted that the burglary is the most recent in a stream of break-ins at celebrity homes across L.A., though LAPD investigators haven’t said whether they think the crimes are connected.
For McCutchen, who had played only one game in right field in his entire 12-year pro career (at Double-A Altoona in 2006), the move hurt especially the fact the Pirates didn’t even ask him.
The Mets have a brand, Alderson told SI. I looked at Tim as someone who wouldn’t necessarily enhance the brand; he wouldn’t degrade the brand. But he would sure expand the brand.
