MILB.com is reporting that Tebow initially hurt his hand swinging the bat in the seventh inning. The injury came in a game on July 19th against the Trenton Thunder.

The Mets then placed Tebow on a seven-day disabled list several days later. As he was on the disabled list, Tebow went back to New York to see a head specialist.

Tebow had an X-ray and an MRI on the injury last Friday, MILB.com is reporting.

“We’re really tentative to use him in any other area,” Binghamton manager Luis Rojas said to MiLB.com. “The organization and our medical trainer required him to go to New York as soon as possible. We have to find out what the discomfort is. We just have to make sure that it’s nothing major.”

The 30-year-old, who was signed by the Mets in September 2016, was an All-Star in the Eastern League. He had a .273 batting average with six home runs and 36 RBIS.

He also had 14 doubles and a .336 on-base percentage in 84 games.

With the Double-A Binghamton franchise, he had a .297 batting average. He also had one home run and three RBIS in his last 10 games there.

Before this injury, it was believed that Tebow was going to be considered for a September call-up to the Mets. However, with his broken hand now, Tebow will not be able to participate over the rest of the season.
