Mets outfield prospect Tim Tebow, who is playing in the Double-A All-Star Game on Wednesday night, said he still has room to grow.
"I know as a baseball player, I have a lot of room to grow," Tebow said. "I know I'm not even close to where I want to be."
While the 30-year-old Tebow might actually, implausibly, have a chance to play for the Mets later this season, it's not something he's focusing on.
"I can't worry about any of that. I have to stay focused on the process and not the maybes, not the hypothetical, not the what-ifs. I don't think that's a place that an athlete can live."
Tebow's production this season has seen improvement by the month. In April, he had a .226 average and .653 OPS with one home run. He followed that by hitting .241 with three home runs and a .731 OPS in May.
Overall, Tebow is hitting .270/.337/.390 with five HR in 76 games this season for Binghamton.
