New York Mets minor league coach Jose Leger has gone out on a limb to say he believes Tim Tebow could make an impact in the MLB one day.

Despite only playing in six games with the New York Mets Single-A affiliate Columbia Fireflies, manager Jose Leger believes that Tim Tebow has big league talent despite what many people think.

“He’s the leader on the team already,” Leger told TMZ Sports. “He outworks anybody that we have out here.”

In six games with the Fireflies, Tebow is sporting a .174/.269/.435 slash line with two home runs and six RBI’s. While he has shown he has the power needed to cut it in the majors, other aspects of his game have not shown the same as of yet.

Tebow has struck out in nine of his 26 plate appearances while only drawing two walks. His discipline is certainly something he should be aiming to improve if he wants to live up to the hype his manager is setting up for him.

Him being a clubhouse leader is not something that can be decided off of statistics so it is not something you can discredit Tebow for, but it is not an element that will bring him to the majors either.

Tebow might be the most influential clubhouse presence of all time, but if he does not hit the ball and show he has all the tools necessary, he will never step foot on a major league field.
