According to James Wagner of the New York Times, Tim Tebow has been working with Craig Wallenbrock to improve his offense next season.
Wallenbrock’s claim to fame is helping rework J.D. Martinez‘s swing to help the outfielder add more loft and drive with balls off his bat. With Wallenbrock’s help, Martinez has gone from a released player to an All Star looking for a massive free agent deal this offseason.
Wallenbrock is also working with Mets center fielder Juan Lagares.
In addition to the news Tebow is working hard on his swing, Sandy Alderson reported the Mets have yet to decide where Tebow will be assigned to begin the 2018 season.
Last year, Tebow played for both Columbia and St. Lucie. Both affiliates would draw record attendance figures, which was largely attributed to Tebow’s presence on the roster.
