On Tuesday, Collins told the gathered media at the Winter Meetings that hed like to see the former Heisman Trophy winner get a real opportunity to showcase his skills this spring, which would obviously include getting playing time during Grapefruit League action. TC wants to have Tebow play in spring training games. Marc Carig (@MarcCarig) December 6, 2016 Even if Tebow isn’t invited to camp, TC says he’ll make it a point to bring him over for games in big league spring training. http://sarahsmithpost.prosportsmall.com/2016/10/03/insights-into-elementary-career-for-doctor-plansMarc Carig (@MarcCarig) December 6, 2016 Those groans you hear arent just coming from National Harbor, site of the 2016 Winter Meetings. Theyre coming from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Florida and all points in between. The Tebow baseball experiment was fun for a hot-minute and perhaps even interesting for a couple minutes longer. He didnt appear to be anything close to a contributor though during his recent stint in the Arizona Fall League (AFL), and the idea that he might take several at-bats and defensive innings away from someone who could contribute sooner than later seems rather absurd. For a little perspective on Tebows AFL struggles, he hit 194 (12-of-62) with three doubles over 19 games. That equaled an abysmal .242 slugging percentage. And while he did show a keen eye at the plate, drawing eight walks, he also struck out 20 times in 70 plate appearances.
