Tim Tebow needs to get another J.C. in his life — Jose Canseco — with the ex-MLB slugger telling TMZ Sports he can turn Tim into a legit power hitter.
Jose Canseco started off saying that Tim Tebow’s swing is too mechanical.
Jose Canseco says that Tim Tebow’s swing is too short and too rotational to create power.
When asked by TMZ Sports, Caseco said he could him to 35 or 45 home runs, and at the Triple A level 50 home runs.
Canseco estimated Tebow at 6’2″ 240 LBS — definitely a physicality capable of some power hitting.
Tebow spent 4 years in the NFL, and 2 years in the minor leagues with the New York Mets, playing for the Scottsdale Scorpions, the Columbia Fireflies, the Port St. Lucie Mets, and the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.
As of Wednesday March 6, 2019, Tim Tebow is active on the MiLB roster as a Left Fielder for the Binghampton Rumble Ponies.
Canseco was the first player to hit 30 home runs for four different MLB teams: Oakland 33 in 1986, Texas 31 in 1994, Toronto 46 in 1998 and Tampa Bay 34 in 1999. Canseco’s home run stats were later surpassed by Fred McGriff and Gary Sheffield who hit over 30 HR for 5 different teams. Canseco’s 462 career home runs place him at #37 on the MLB all-time list. The top three are Barry Bonds (762), Hank Aaron (755), and Babe Ruth (714). Unfortunately, Canseco’s career only lasted 16 years, from 1985 to 2001.
Barry Bonds’ career lasted 21 years, Hank Aaron’s career lasted 21 years, Babe Ruth’s career lasted 20 years.
Jose is dead serious … he wants to be Tim’s personal hitting coach. And, he’s offering up his services for FREE!
