Mets minor league outfielder Tim Tebow, playing for the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall league, suffered an apparent leg injury during a game on Monday afternoon, minor league photographer Bill Mitchell reports. With a runner on first base and one out in the bottom of the fourth inning, Tebow hit into a fielder’s choice 6-4 ground out. During the next at-bat, he attempted to steal second base, but was thrown out to end the inning and appeared to suffer a leg injury in the process.

Tebow did not come back out to play defense the next inning as Aaron Brown replaced him in left field. Tebow ended the afternoon 1-for-2 with a single. The severity of the injury is not yet known, but we should have a better idea in a few hours.

After Monday’s effort, Tebow is currently batting .147 (5-for-34) with a double and two runs scored. Only two players — Danny Mars and Drew Jackson — have a lower OPS than Tebow’s .371 in the AFL.
