NYP: It’s gotten really ugly for Tim Tebow

Tebow Time has hit the skids in Triple-A.
After 21 games with the Syracuse Mets, Tim Tebow has been missing at the plate, slumping to a .143 batting average and .396 OPS with 27 strikeouts in 70 at-bats.
The 31-year-old outfielder and former NFL quarterback had opened some eyes in 2018, when he hit .273 in 84 games at Double-A Binghamton, but that season ended early with a broken hamate bone in his right hand, and Tebow has been unable to get in a groove since.

“I think for me, it’s to improve every single day, continue to focus on the process, and make strides in every area — [on the] basepaths, outfield, and at the plate, of course,” Tebow told reporters on Monday in Allentown, Pa., before facing the Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate.
Tebow, a former CAA client of Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen, is closer than he’s ever been to the big leagues, but will need to start hitting soon if he hopes to get there.
“I think it’s not just about if I make the majors or don’t, I think it’s enjoying what you do, and I think that should be a goal for everyone, actually, is to love what you do,” the former Heisman Trophy winner said. “And that’s why I started playing this in the first place, because it was something that I missed and I wanted to give it a shot.” (Via NYP)
