Tebow’s Syracuse Season Done Due to Cut Pinky
If you're a Tim Tebow fan and haven't seen him play for the Syracuse Mets yet, you're going to have to hope he's on the club again next year.
Multiple reports cite Newsday's Tim Healy, who tweeted Saturday that a 'deep cut' to Tebow's pinky finger suffered last month won't be healed by the time Syracuse's season wraps on September 2. Healy's tweet, though, says the Mets expect to have Tebow back for 2020.
In all likelihood - being a fan favorite who just isn't good enough for The Bigs - it would be in Syracuse.
Tebow turns 32 next week and has played three seasons of Minor League Baseball, all with the Mets. This season he hit a scant .163 with four homers and 19 RBI in 77 games.
The Syracuse Mets currently stand at 59-59 on the season, six games out of first place in the International League's North Division.
