The Mets just announced that Tim Tebow will report to the Arizona Fall League on Sunday. Tebow is 4-for-14 with a homer and two walks in three Instructional League games. The Mets say they want Tebow to play more against advanced competition.
The Fall League will definitely be that, as a better class of prospects tend to participate in it than in the instructs. Indeed, it tends to be reserved for top prospects, not aging projects like Tebow, but on to the desert he goes.
Will the Mets look really, really smart by the time he’s done? Or will their experiment be shown to be a failure?
