Tim Tebow’s Chances at Making Majors This Year Likely Over Thanks to Broken Hand

An injury to his right hand will keep the Double-A outfielder out for the rest of the season.

If Tim Tebow’s improbable quest to make the majors has a fairytale ending and he actually does suit up for the New York Mets, it won’t be this season.

After sustaining an injury Friday night in a game against Trenton while swinging a bat, the Binghamton outfielder will have surgery on Tuesday to repair a broken hamate bone in his right hand.

It’s not 100 percent certain, but it’s believed the surgery will keep the Double-A ballplayer out for the remainder of the season, an MLB source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

On the season, Tebow is batting .273 with six home runs, 36 RBI, and a team-high 103 strikeouts in 83 games. Despite those mixed numbers, there was some optimism the Mets could call Tebow up during September.

Now, thanks to the surgery, the chances of Tebow being a September call-up are all but eliminated barring unforeseen circumstances.

Oh well, just more time for him to hang out with Miss Universe.
