Tim Tebow made his spring training debut for the Mets today, and had the unfortunate luck of facing 2016 Cy Young winner Rick Porcello in his first at-bat. It didn’t go so well.
Porcello briefly stalled Tebow’s certain march to Cooperstown by punching him out Tebow on four pitches, all fastballs. That’s not Single A pitching, Timmy.
Here’s the video of the entire at-bat. Don’t worry, it doesn’t take long.

In his second at-bat, Tebow grounded into a run-scoring double play with the bases loaded. Ehh….
