Tim Tebow’s athletic career has been marked by unbelievable comebacks and storybook endings. However, the end of this year’s minor league season with the Mets, is one he will soon want to forget.
A deep cut Tebow sustained to his left pinky finger in July put him on the injured list, and now, it has ended his season.
Breaking: Tim Tebow’s season is over, sources said.
He suffered a deep cut on his left pinky last month, and it won’t heal in time for him to play again this year.
The Mets expect Tebow, who turns 32 next week, back in 2020 for his fourth season of pro baseball.

Tebow’s struggles were well-publicized this season. After a performance which saw him earn an All-Star Game appearance for Double-A Binghampton in 2018, Tebow fell flat at Triple-A. The former quarterback turned baseball player hit only .163, with four home runs and 98 strikeouts over the course of 77 games.
While the Mets expect Tebow to return, the fact that he’s turning 32 and regressing at the plate make it very unlikely Tebow will reach the Major Leagues.
