Tim Tebow's big league dream was already a wild long-shot before he stalled out in Triple-A in 2019, when he hit just .163/.240/.255 in 77 games.
Still, as has been the case since joining the Mets, Tebow will be at big league spring training.
Asked what kind of advice he would give Tebow as he continues to play baseball, Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun had the following to say to TMZ Sports.
"I don't need to give him advice, man, the guy is a great athlete, he's an incredible competitor," Braun said. "I think the message is just to stick with it, right? Baseball is so specific, he's one of the greatest athletes on the planet. But to be good at baseball, you have to do it over a long period of time. I think the more reps he has, the better he'll continue to get. I would never count that guy out. He's proven that he's the type of guy that can make it at anything he aspires to be great at."
With 40-man rosters in September a thing of the past, any hope Tebow had of eventually being a September call-up has likely gone out the window. But Braun said he wouldn't rule anything out when asked if Tebow eventually had a shot at making it.
"Obviously the odds are stacked against you, right? If you look at the guys who make it to the minor leagues, it's so difficult to ever make it to the major leagues," Braun explained. "But being in big league camp, being that he's a tremendous athlete, he's an all-time competitor. I certainly wouldn't count him out."
During Tebow's minor league career, which included a somewhat decent season with Double-A Binghamton in 2018, he has hit .223/.299/.338 in 287 games.
