Tim Tebow Wasn't The Worst Hitter In The Arizona Fall League

The Arizona Fall League season has come and gone and Tim Tebow didn't have too great of a campaign.

The Arizona Fall League has come to a close and that means we can dive into Tim Tebow's numbers during his stint with the Scottsdale Scorpions.

Here is a look at some basic numbers from Tebow's 19 games played from Kari Van Horn of ABC 15:

A batting average under .200 is nothing to be too proud about, but his .194 average wasn't the worst among hitters in the league.

His .194 average was the eighth-worst among hitters, his .242 slugging percentage was the fourth-worst and his .296 on-base percentage was just below the league average. As for RBI, only five hitters had less than two RBI during the season in total.

In really looking at things, Tebow's numbers are about what you would expect them to be.

Let's also not forget that the Arizona Fall League isn't full of just nobody hitters either. There are some big time names that took part this year like one of the Yankees top prospect SS Gleyber Torres and one of the Cubs' top prospects 2B Ian Happ to name a couple.
