Tim Tebow is moving on up.
The former Florida quarterback was promoted to the Arizona Fall League, which serves as an offseason “graduate school” for top minor league prospects.
The New York Mets announced the news on Tuesday.

Tebow will see an increase in competition after starting in the Instructional League in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
The former SEC great homered on the first pitch he saw with the Mets, and went 4-for-14 (.286) with two walks during his time in the Instructional League.
Should Tebow excel, there’s a chance he could get invited to spring training with the Mets in February.
