SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) –

As the Syracuse Mets battle for a playoff spot, Tim Tebow will be watching from home.

Mets manager Tony DeFrancesco told News Channel 9 that it was Tebow’s decision not to return to Syracuse this season.

Back on July 21st, Tebow cut his hand against Toledo fielding a ball in left field. The cut required the former Heisman Trophy winner to get eight stitches.

With less than a month left in the season, Tebow decided that it was not enough time to return to the Syracuse Mets.

In 77 games this season, Tebow batted .163 with 19 runs batted in.

This is the second straight year that the 32-year-old has finished the year on the IL.
