​With the ​New York Mets currently tied for first place in the National League East, it seems like things are going pretty well for the Amazins in the early going of the 2019 ​MLB season.


The same cannot be said, unfortunately, for ​Tim Tebow. The former Denver Broncos quarterback turned minor-leaguer is with the Mets' Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse, and his season hasn't gotten off on the right foot at all.

Those numbers are tough to look at, honestly. With the production Tebow has put out in the minors prior to this year, there were rumblings that he might be able to get a call up with the big league club if things progressed that way.


After this abysmal start, a promotion seems extremely unlikely. 

​Much to the chagrin of Tebow, things evidently have not panned out in Triple-A as of yet. A hit every seven at-bats isn't going to cut it. The season is just getting underway, however, so there is time for him to get right and improve as the Major League season rolls on. One player originally slated to start 2019 in the minors is already paying huge dividends for the Mets.

With Pete Alonso already on the team as the biggest major leaguer in waiting, perhaps the next marquee call up could be Tebow if he can shake this rough early slump.
