Tim Tebow got his first two hits of spring training on Monday. Though, as happy as the former Heisman winner must be about that performance, you can color former MLB slugger Jose Canseco unimpressed.
During an interview with TMZ Sports, the former Oakland A described Tebow’s swing as “bad,” and “mechanical.” Though, Canseco did offer to help Tebow with his power hitting, for free.
“I can definitely turn him into a power hitter,” Canseco told TMZ Sports.
“He’s extremely strong, extremely physical … I can easily get him up to 35 to 45 home runs [at the MLB level]. At the AAA level, he could hit 50.”
Canseco has been volunteering his services quite a bit lately. In December, the former “Bash Brother” offered to serve as President Trump’s chief of staff. Prior to that, he had offered to become the U.S. ambassador to Cuba.
It’s hard to think of any more reliable instructors when it comes to the art of power hitting. Canseco hit 462 homeruns over his 17-year career.
