Jesus #2 Tim Tebow getting his batting average up in Single A
Tim Tebow extended his Class A ascent for the Columbia Fireflies on Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with his first career triple — on a headfirst slide — to raise his batting average to .246.
The 5-0 win for the Mets‘ South Carolina affiliate over the visiting Asheville Tourists featured Tebow’s third multihit game since Friday, as the 29-year-old followed up on his best week in the minors with more consistency at the plate. In his past six games, Tebow is batting .450 (9-for-20).
“There are some guys who do really good who get taken away from me halfway through the year,” Fireflies manager Jose Leger said, according to The State. “Then there are guys that get taken away really early. It is hard to predict when it happens. A lot depends on what is happening in the level above. Whenever they decide it, he will be ready. He is just working hard, and we are going day by day.”
If you are like me you can already see the writing on the wall for this one. Tim Tebow is going to get rushed thru all of Minor League baseball. If the Mets can get really excited the Jesus #2 is raising his batting average up to .246 then you know what’s going to happen. Tebow has three multihit games since last Friday. In that same game, he just missed his third home run of the season.
OOOOO I can already see the Mets already making the move. They have pretty much stunk this year with an 8-12 record and would love to drive up some ticket sales. As I write this they are getting beat by the Braves. The BRAVES!!
