Sale had been scheduled to start Game 6 of the ALCS in the event Boston didn't clinch Thursday.According to OddsShark, the Red Sox are -150 (bet $150 to win $100) favorites to win the World Series. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who lead the NLCS 3-2, are +190 (bet $100 to win $190), while the Milwaukee Brewers are +650. The New York Mets announced Saturday that Tim Tebow will see a specialist next week after suffering an injury to his right hand Thursday while playing for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies in a Double-A game against the Trenton Thunder."It's a hand/wrist thing," Rumble Ponies manager Luis Rojas told reporters Thursday. "I think there was one swing where he let go the bottom hand and the top hand finished his swing. He said that he felt something there. We don't know right now."Tebow, who played in the Eastern League All-Star Game last week, has been playing some of the best baseball of his career lately.The 30-year-old former NFL quarterback has tallied at least one hit in nine of his past 10 games , including a 3-for-5 performance with a home run against the Akron RubberDucks last Friday.He's posted a .273/.336/.399 triple-slash line with six homers across 84 games for Binghamton in 2018.His improvement throughout his second year in the minors has raised questions about whether the Mets, who are already fading from the MLB playoff race with a 40-55 record, might call him up to the majors when the rosters expand to 40 in September.Tebow sidestepped a question about that possibility ahead of his All-Star appearance, perEverett MerrillofBaseball America."I'm just working on seeing more pitches and having a plan when I come up to bat. I can't worry about the hypotheticals or the what-ifs," he said. "I don't think that's a place an athlete can live. I know as a baseball player I have a lot of room to grow, and I think I'm getting better every day and every series."How long the hand injury keeps him sidelined could play a key role in determining whether Tebow ends up making a few appearances for the Mets this season.
