Update On Tim Tebow's Hand Injury

Posted: Updated:

According to a source closely connected to the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, outfielder Tim Tebow has suffered a fracture to his right hamate bone and will undergo a minimally invasive surgery.

It was announced on Saturday, July 21, 2018, that Tim Tebow had been placed on the 7-day DL list and will be meeting with the Mets hand specialist in New York City (N.Y.C) early next week.

Hamate bone fractures are quite common when it comes to baseball injuries and normally take around six to eight weeks to fully recover. With that being said, this injury could perhaps keep him out for the season.

"We definitely thought that [hamate] could be the case. Tim couldn't grip his hand. He started wearing a wrist brace since the next day...he hurt a little bit," said Rumble Ponies Manager, Luis Rojas.

On Thursday, July 19th, Tebow left Binghamton's 3-2 win over Trenton Thunder with "hand discomfort" after seemingly hurting his hand in his at-bat in the seventh inning.The following day, he underwent an MRI and X-ray on his right hand. Tim Tebow was not at today's game against the Trenton Thunder.

After reaching out to the Rumble Ponies communication department, they did not release any more information other than reiterating that Tebow will be heading to N.Y.C to see the Mets hand specialist early next week for a second opinion.

The thirty-year old was promoted to Double-A Binghamton at the start of the 2018 season and has put up impressive numbers, as of late. On the season he has produced .273/.336/.399 with six home runs, a stolen base and a .734 OPS through 298 plate appearances.
