Tim Tebow's season is off to a rough start.
How rough? The Mets outfielder's Triple-A average dipped to .130 after he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts on Sunday. He's also struck out 32 times in just 23 games.
"It's very difficult right now, some of the pitching that's coming at him," Syracuse Mets manager Tony DeFrancesco told the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin. "He hadn't seen much of that at Double-A last year. Guys are pounding him in and he has to learn how to make adjustments."
Even if Tebow makes the changes necessary to succeed, it's unlikely he will be able to make a significant impact given his age, as he's set to turn 32 in August.
