SYRACUSE -- Tim Tebow’s 2019 season is officially over.
The Newsday’s Mets beat writer, Tim Healey, broke the news via twitter Saturday.
Tebow, who suffered a deep cut on his pinky in a July 21st loss in Toledo, won’t heal in time to return to the Syracuse Mets lineup.
This becomes the second straight season in which the former Heisman Trophy winner ends his year early. Last season, while with AA-Binghamton, Tebow broke his hamate bone.
2019 had been a bit of struggle for Tebow. The 31-year-old was batting .163, with just four homers and 19 RBI in 77 games with Syracuse.
Compare that to his AA all-star season with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies last season (.263 Avg, 6 HR, 36 RBI in 84 games), Tebow has left much to be desired.
Despite the poor results in AAA, Healy also reports the big league Mets expect to have Tebow back in the organization next season.
