The New York Mets announced Saturday that
Tim Tebow will see a specialist next week after suffering an injury to his right hand Thursday while playing for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies in a Double-A game against the Trenton Thunder."It's a hand/wrist thing Roberto Alomar Jersey ," Rumble Ponies manager Luis Rojas told reporters Thursday. "I think there was one swing where he let go the bottom hand and the top hand finished his swing. He said that he felt something there. We don't know right now."Tebow, who played in the Eastern League All-Star Game last week, has been playing some of the best baseball of his career lately.The 30-year-old former NFL quarterback has tallied at least one hit in nine of his past 10 games, including a 3-for-5 performance with a home run against the Akron RubberDucks last Friday.He's posted a .273/.336/.399 triple-slash line with six homers across 84 games for Binghamton in 2018.His improvement throughout his second year in the minors has raised questions about whether the Mets Nick Markakis Jersey , who are already fading from the MLB playoff race with a 40-55 record, might call him up to the majors when the rosters expand to 40 in September.Tebow sidestepped a question about that possibility ahead of his All-Star appearance, perEverett MerrillofBaseball America."I'm just working on seeing more pitches and having a plan when I come up to bat. I can't worry about the hypotheticals or the what-ifs," he said. "I don't think that's a place an athlete can live. I know as a baseball player I have a lot of room to grow Babe Ruth Jersey , and I think I'm getting better every day and every series."How long the hand injury keeps him sidelined could play a key role in determining whether Tebow ends up making a few appearances for the Mets this season.

Jeff Fletcher reported yesterday that Cozart hoped to avoid time on the IL , but given Taylor Ward’s arrival that may mean an IL stint is near for Cozart.Ward was hitting .375 with 5 RBI’s and a stolen base over his first 4 games for the Salt Lake Bees. Ward didn’t fare so well last year in the majors, hitting .178 over 135 games but he did have a pair of stolen bases and 6 home runs. Ward’s defense at third has left a bit to be desired, but he has certainly flashed power AND he has some speed. Ward had the 5th fastest sprint speed according to Statcast last year, tied with David Fletcher and right behind Shohei Ohtani.from BaseballSavantIn the corresponding move Freddie Freeman Jersey , Justin Anderson has been sent down to Salt Lake to make room for Ward on the 25 man roster. Given that Anderson just pitched yesterday, it’s likely a temporary move and it probably won’t be long before he re-joins the big league roster. Earning those frequent flier miles already!!
