Tim Tebow’s Triple-A baseball season over after hand injury

Tim Tebow’s Triple-A baseball season over after hand injury

He was one of 13 Mets farmhands invited to spring training.

2019 had been a bit of struggle for Tebow.

The New York Mets are making a run at a spot in the Major League Baseball postseason - but don't expect Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow to play any role in a pennant race this year.

The Mets expect Tebow, who turns 32 next week, back in 2020 for his fourth season of pro baseball.

Former Heisman Trophy victor Tim Tebow will miss the rest of the season with Triple-A Syracuse due to a hand injury, according to Newsday. Tebow, 31, a former star at Nease High and the University of Florida, was playing with Triple-A Syracuse in the New York Mets farm system. It's an unfortunate end to an already-disappointing season for the National Football League quarterback-turned-left-fielder; in his first taste of Triple-A ball, he managed a paltry.163/.240/.255 at the plate with four home runs, 19 RBI, and two stolen bases (in four chances) across 264 plate appearances.

The former Heisman Trophy victor posted a.163/.240/.255 slash in 77 games at AAA Syracuse. This is the second year in a row Tebow ended the year with an injury after a broken hamate bone in his right hand knocked him out of action in late July.
