"I would never count that guy out," Braun said of Tebow in an interview with TMZ Sports. "He's proven that he's the type of dude that can make it in anything he aspires to be great at."
The Mets invited Tebow to spring training for 2020, with the New York Post's Peter Botte writing the move "clearly is more of a business decision aimed at selling Grapefruit League tickets than a baseball one by the Mets."
While some players have successfully made the transition from football to baseball—Jeff Samardzija is one of the biggest examples in recent years—Tebow has struggled on the diamond.
The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner had a .163/.240/.255 slash line with four home runs and 19 RBIs in 77 games for the Mets' Triple-A affiliate in 2019.
Braun's faith in Tebow is admirable, but it's probably safe to say the time has probably passed for the 32-year-old to grow into a productive everyday player in MLB.
