Tim Tebow’s MLB Tryouts: See What The Scouts Are Saying

Tim Tebow’s MLB Tryouts: See What The Scouts Are Saying

Former NFL star Tim Tebow finally showcased his baseball skills during a media-covered try out (dubbed the nth TebowTime) in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The 29-year-old tried to impress 42 major-league scouts for 27 MLB teams in hopes of securing a professional contract.

Tebow initially wanted to be a baseball player, even before he decided to pursue a future in football after junior year in high school. After bagging a Heisman Trophy in 2007 with the Florida Gators and enjoying a brief career with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets, here he is trying to revive his first dream.

So on Tuesday, he ran an above-average 60-yard dash, did outfield throwing drills, did a batting practive and, finally, a live batting practice against recent major-league relievers David Aardsma and Chad Smith.

How did it go? Well, it looks like he’s still going to have to wish for it a little harder. Check out what some of the scouts had to say about Tebow below.

Jim Bowden of ESPN graded below average in 5 categories, according to 12 MLB scouts at the workout. With the scale going from 20-80 (with 50 being the MLB average), Tebow’s score went was:

Arm – 40 (No carry)
Fielding – 45 (Needs footwork)
Hitting – 35 (Grooved uppercut swing)
Power – 55 (Raw power)
Running – 55 (6.7 60-yard dash time)


Guess we’ll have to find out when he can try out again… or if a scout decides to give him a chance and train him as hard as possible. Meanwhile, Tebow needs to improve if he wants a real chance at the MLB.
