The former college football star suffered a significant cut on his left pinky last month and it reportedly won't heal in time for him to come back this season.

Former Heisman Trophy victor Tim Tebow will miss the rest of the season with Triple-A Syracuse due to a hand injury, according to Newsday.

He hurt his hand against Toldeo on July 21 fielding a ball that took a bad bounce in the outfield.

This is the second season in a row Tebow's year was cut short because of injury. His 2018 season end early due to a broken hand. He was one of 13 Mets farmhands invited to spring training.

A hand injury will sideline Tim Tebow for the remainder of the baseball season. Unfortunately, there was only minimal improvement as the season progressed.

Though even with a good season, Tebow's Major League Baseball chances took a hit thanks to the Mets' recent surge into the postseason picture.

The outfielder was not enjoying a particularly strong year, his first in Triple-A Syracuse, batting.163/.240/.255 over 77 games while striking out 98 times in 264 plate appearances. This felt like a make-or-break season in terms of proving he could contribute and potentially sustain a role at the big league level.

Tebow's return to baseball, a sport that he hadn't played since his junior season at Nease in 2005, has been an interesting story.
