Tim Tebow will not return to the diamond due to injury.

While playing for the New York Mets' Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse, the 2007 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback suffered a cut hand while fielding a ball in the outfield on July 21 and was placed on the injured list.

Last season the lefty swinging Tebow made the Eastern League All-Star Game when he hit.273/.336/.399 in 84 games for Double-A Binghamton, which was also cut short after he broke a bone in his right hand. "It's just kind of in an awkward spot between his index finger, his ring finger and pinkie", the manager said in July. He spent two seasons in the league with Denver and one with the Jets before joining the Mets organization.

Healey tweeted that the Mets expect Tebow, who turns 32 next month, to return to baseball in 2020.

Williams will face the victor of the quarter-final match between Simona Halep and Marie Bouzková, in the last four. A lot of hype went into their quarterfinal showdown as it was their first meeting since the 2018 US Open final .

Since the move, Tebow has struggled mightily to find any sort of rhythm at the plate.

The left-handed hitting Tebow finished his 2019 season with a less-than-impressive.163 batting average, four home runs and 19 RBI, ESPN reported.

For the second time in as many seasons, Tebow had his minor league baseball season end because of an injury.
