New York Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow has a broken hamate bone in his right hand and is likely to miss the remainder of the season, the team announced on Monday.
Tebow [had] surgery on Tuesday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks, “so his season is effectively over,” Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said.
The Binghamton outfielder sustained the injury in Friday night’s game against Eastern League opponent Trenton. Binghamton is the Mets’ Double-A affiliate. He was placed on the disabled list Saturday.
Currently, the Rumble Ponies are in fourth place in the Eastern League’s Eastern Division.
