He was one of 13 Mets farmhands invited to spring training.
Tim Tebow's 2019 season is officially over.
According to the report, the Mets expect Tebow to return for a fourth professional season next year.
"He'll be out for as long as it takes to heal, get back on track".
Despite starting the season with some hope that maybe, just maybe, a stumbling Mets team would bring him up come September for some sweet box-office rake, any dream of that has evaporated. It was his first season with Syracuse, the Mets' Triple-A affiliate.
Tebow, who suffered a deep cut on his left pinkie finger and has been on the injured list since, will not recover in time to play again in 2019, Newsday's Tim Healey reports.
Since the move, Tebow has struggled mightily to find any sort of rhythm at the plate.
This becomes the second straight season in which the former Heisman Trophy victor ends his year early.
In 2018, he hit.273 at Double-A Binghamton with 6 homers and 36 RBIs in 271 at-bats over 84 games before breaking a bone in his right hand, an injury that ended his season. The former quarterback turned baseball player hit only.163, with four home runs and 98 strikeouts over the course of 77 games.
