Former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback turned professional baseball player Tim Tebow will see a hand specialist early next week. Tebow injured his right hand in Thursday’s 3-2 Binghamton victory over Trenton.

Tebow scored the game winning run in the second inning, but left with discomfort in his wrist and hand during his seventh inning at-bat.

Tebow underwent an MRI on Friday, however, the Rumble Ponies haven’t released any information.

This has led Tyler Feldman of WBNG to speculate that the injury may be more serious than originally believed:

Tebow is hitting .273 with 6 HR and 36 RBI in Double-A Binghamton. Earlier this month, Tebow participated in the Eastern League All-Star Game where he went 1-2 with a double in his first at-bat.

UPDATE: Per MiLB.com, Tim Tebow has landed on the disabled list.

“The organization and our medical trainer required him to go to New York as soon as possible,” Binghamton manager Luis Rojas stated. “We have to find out what the discomfort is, we just have to make sure it’s nothing major.”
