Tebow done for season with cut hand


A left-handed-hitting outfielder and designated hitter, Tebow batted.273 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 84 games at Double-A Binghamton last season.

The former college football star suffered a significant cut on his left pinky last month and it reportedly won't heal in time for him to come back this season.

A hand injury will sideline Tim Tebow for the remainder of the baseball season.

Tim Tebow will not return to the diamond due to injury.

Mets manager Tony DeFrancesco hinted this was a possibility.


Tebow, 31, suffered a "deep cut" on his hand while attempting to make a catch in the outfield on July 21.

Healey tweeted that the Mets expect Tebow, who turns 32 next month, to return to baseball in 2020.

This is the second straight year Tebow's season will end prematurely.

Tebow, who also works as an SEC Network analyst, is in his third year of professional baseball and first at Triple-A after a three-year stint at quarterback in the NFL.

Tebow hit just.163 in 77 games, all in Triple A. He struck out 98 times in 239 at-bats. He was shut down in late July of 2018 after suffering a broken bone in his hand.
