Tebow (finger) is expected to be ready for the start of spring training after missing the final six weeks of the season, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Tebow struggled with Triple-A Syracuse last season, recording a career-low .495 OPS with 19 RBI over 77 games prior to his injury. The 32-year-old also exhibited below-average fielding, and he is expected to return to the Triple-A level next year.
Tebow (finger) will not return this season for Triple-A Syracuse, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. The 31-year-old outfielder was 75 percent worse (25 wRC+) than the average International League hitter despite the fact he was four years older than league average.
Tebow was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday with a hand laceration, Kelsie Heneghan of MiLB.com reports Tebow suffered the injury fielding a ball in left field Sunday and was forced to exit the contest. The severity of the issue remains unclear, but the 31-year-old will be sidelined for at least a week.
The Mets assigned Tebow to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Attending big-league camp as a non-roster invitee, Tebow went 4-for-15 during Grapefruit League action. After spending the 2018 campaign exclusively at Double-A Binghamton, the 31-year-old Tebow will climb up another rung on the minor-league ladder as he looks to keep his dream of reaching the majors alive.
Tebow went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Thursday's spring game against Washington. Tebow slotted into the starting lineup as the designated hitter and drove in his first run of camp in the sixth inning on a single to center field. The former college football star is now 3-for-12 with an RBI this spring and remains on track to start the regular season at Triple-A Syracuse.
