Tim Tebow is a couple of years into his professional baseball journey and the former Heisman Trophy winner has fared pretty well, reaching the Triple-A level of the New York Mets farm system.
The 31-year-old outfielder has peaked at Triple-A, though, says one MLB scout.
Tebow is struggling in Triple-A this season, hitting .158 with 67 strikeouts in 48 games.
One MLB scout believes Tebow has reached his peak as a player and won't be making the major leagues.
"I just think he's reached his top, his zenith, as far as Triple-A," the scout told the New York Post. "I don't think he's a major league player, but I think he works extremely hard and he will run into some fastballs, and when I saw him he was really getting tied up inside and just striking out a lot and not making contact.
"I don't think this is a show, because Tim Tebow is an athlete and athletes are athletes. He's strong, he's got strength and I am not going to take away the fact he is coming off a hamate. If he turns out to be an organizational Double-A or Triple-A player, he's not the only one who would be that."
The Mets had said prior to the 2018 season that they believed Tebow could be a major league player.
"That's my guess," former GM Sandy Alderson said. "That's my hope. And to some extent now after a year and a half, a modest expectation."
Knowing Tebow, he'll likely continue to work extremely hard with reaching the MLB as a goal. Right now, though, it's tough to envision that happening.
