Rick Porcello thought Tim Tebow was a bat boy

Tim Tebow Mets

Tim Tebow’s appearance with the New York Mets in a Grapefruit League spring training game on Wednesday was a forgettable one.

Tebow played with a Mets split squad team against the Boston Red Sox and batted eighth as the DH. He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, grounded into a double-play, and he got hit by a pitch. But he was picked off after being hit.

Not only did Tebow show that he’s a long ways away from being able to compete at a Major League level, but he also showed that he’s somewhat out of place.

Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello, the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, said he thought Tebow was a bat boy when he saw the Mets hitter warm up in the wrong on-deck circle.

Not only did Tebow show he didn’t exactly know his way around a field, but Red Sox manager John Farrell had this backhanded compliment for him.

Ouch. It’s a rough life out there. And now you understand where these harsh scouting reports about Tebow came about.
