Tim Tebow is getting realistic about his struggles in the baseball minors, and while he is not prepared to give up on his major league dream just yet, the former NFL quarterback is considering putting a timeframe to it, USA Today reported.

"I've always believed in myself, so I'm not going to stop now," Tebow said Friday night before going 1-for-3 with a double and a strikeout.

However the 30-year-old, who has played 51 games for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, admitted that he may have to consider giving himself a timeframe to make it to the major leagues or quit playing.

"I think that it's something I'll have to figure out, pray about it, and see where my heart's at with everything," he said, according to the USA Today. "It's hard to necessarily put a timetable on a dream or ambitions or heart, so I think it's just looking at it, praying about it and figuring out what's best."

Earlier this year, Tebow was reassigned by the New York Mets to their minor league camp after he went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts in an exhibition game against the Houston Astros.

He has been plagued by a left ankle sprain that he sustained when he tripped over a sprinkler head in the outfield toward the start of the year, and it has hampered his performance since.

Tebow said that he believed he was improving each day but that there were still many things he knew he could improve on.

"I'm making those strides every day," he said, according to USA Today. "So I think every game, every series I'm improving and I want to keep making those strides."

Despite a less-than-great start to the year, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson believes that Tebow's dream of making the big leagues will eventually come true.

"I think he will play in the Major Leagues," he previously said, according to MLB.com.

"That's my guess. That's my hope. And to some extent now after a year and a half, a modest expectation."
