He hit .194/.296/.242 in his first time playing pro baseball since high school.

Or, another way of putting it, better than Pete Kozma did last year in the Majors, who played pro baseball every year since high school.

I don't consider that all too bad numbers, considering. OBP 100 points higher than BA. If he improves that a bit, he could be a passable player. But given his size, he'll need to show power at some point. Should be interesting to see where the Mets put him this year. Double-A? Make him a Binghamton Rumble Pony?

The Mets tentatively plan to borrow Tebow from Minor League camp for his Grapefruit League debut Wednesday against the Red Sox, according to a source. Tebow is also likely to play Friday against the Astros, with both games at home at First Data Field.

Tim Tebow went 3-for-4 with his first career triple on Wednesday afternoon and barely missed his third home run of the season when he drove a ball deep to left field in his final at-bat - his third multihit game since Friday. Over his past six games the 29-year-old has gone 9-for-20 (.450) with three doubles, a triple and a walk while raising his season average to .246.

Tim Tebow has been a member of the St. Lucie Mets for just 23 games, but he's already one of the best hitters in the entire Florida State League.

The former NFL quarterback was the talk of baseball as recently as one month ago, when he was promoted from the Class A Columbia Fireflies to St. Lucie in spite of a listless .220/.311/.336 (AVG/OBP/SLG) slash line. The seemingly unwarranted move inspired ridicule from around the game, with many accusing the Mets organization of a shameless publicity stunt.

Nearly four weeks have passed since then, and general manager Sandy Alderson's front office has seemingly been vindicated.

Tebow immediately took to his new competition, posting five hits, including a home run, in his first three games with St. Lucie. He has not relented since, and his slash line now sits at a healthy .320/.407/.520 through 23 games. If he had enough plate appearances to qualify for rate stats, his .927 OPS would be third in the league.

The irony is I hear less about him now than ever.

With a monstrous Bomb on Sunday Tebow’s now hitting .317/.398/.549, with four home runs. He’s cut down on his strikeout rate too - at Columbia he struck out in 28.2 percent of his plate appearances. That’s down to 19.3 percent now, improving substantially despite the increase in competition.
