WATCH: Another bomb from Tim Tebow, 4th homer since promotion
Ever since the New York Mets organization promoted Tim Tebow to High-A in Port St. Lucie, Fla., he’s been red-hot at the plate. He showed no signs of cooling down on Sunday when he hit his seventh home run of the season, the fourth since returning to the Sunshine State.
The Mets have said Tebow won’t get called up to the big leagues when rosters expand this season, but if he continue to rake at the plate, one has to wonder if AA might not be far off. Through his first 78 at-bats, Tebow has posted a .308 average, .393 on base percentage and a slugging percentage of 0.500. Entering Sunday’s game (Tebow’s 25th with the squad), he had 24 hits for 39 total bases and 14 RBI.

The Port St. Lucie Mets’ home run leader is an ex-Gator, but it’s not Tebow. Former Florida first baseman Peter Alonso has 12 home runs on the year.
