Mets OF Tim Tebow got his first hit in the Arizona Fall League Tuesday, going 1-for-4 with two strikeouts while hitting into a double play.
He's now 1-for-16 in five AFL games.

Tebow has shown raw power, but his swing is too long and he has very poor pitch recognition, an American League scout recently told the Daily News.
"He must shorten [his] swing or he won't hit anything above 90 [miles per hour]," the scout added. "He's below average outfielder. He runs bad routes, has slow jumps and well below average arm strength."
The Mets signed Tebow for $100,000 in late September. Before Instrucional Leagues earlier this month, he had not played baseball since high school in 2005.
