The Mets reportedly don't believe Tebow will be able to return before the minor-league season ends in early September, and he's left the team to work out on his own.
Despite the poor results in AAA, Healy also reports the big league Mets expect to have Tebow back in the organization next season.
Here's to hoping the next Tim Tebow update is more uplifting.
A deep cut on his left pinky suffered in July will end the Triple-A season of New York Mets minor league outfielder Tim Tebow, according to Newsday's Tim Healey. It was his first season with Syracuse, the Mets' Triple-A affiliate.More news: Hong Kong airport suspends check-ins due to protests

Tebow was decent that year, slashing.273/.336/.399, albeit against players an average of 5.7 years younger than him.
Since the move, Tebow has struggled mightily to find any sort of rhythm at the plate.
This becomes the second straight season in which the former Heisman Trophy victor ends his year early. In 2018, he suffered a broken right hand in July which cost him the final months of the season.
Tebow finishes 2019 hitting.163 with 4 home runs, 19 RBIs, 98 strikeouts and 20 walks in 239 at-bats over 77 games.
