Binghamton outfielder Tim Tebow was put on the disabled list Saturday with a right hand injury and is scheduled to see a specialist in New York on Monday, the team said.

Tebow was injured in Friday’s game while playing for the Mets’ Double-A affiliate. Results of an X-ray and MRI were not available.

Earlier this month, Tebow played in the Eastern League All-Star Game. He is batting .273 this season with six home runs and 36 RBIs and a team-high 103 strikeouts in 83 games.
