Tim Tebow has been raking in Double-A for the last month. He might have suffered a setback tonight.

Tebow, who plays for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, the Double-A affiliate for the New York Mets, exited tonight's game against the Trenton Thunder with apparent discomfort in his right hand/wrist area.

Tebow was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored before leaving the game. He is expected to have an MRI tomorrow, according to WBNG's Tyler Feldman.

Tebow is hitting .273 with six home runs, 36 RBI and 32 runs scored in 84 games at Double-A this season. He played in the level's All-Star Game earlier this month.

It appears his wrist might have been something he was dealing with going into the game, as this picture from Feldman demonstrates.

Given the type of season Tebow has been having, it would be a shame if he missed any significant amount of time. He's on pace to potentially play in the majors by the end of the year.

We'll update you on Tebow's status when more information becomes available.
