The Tigers are currently in the second spot of their American League Central Division standings. They have a record of 66 wins and 59 losses in the season so far. The Cleveland Indians is in the first place, which already tallied 72 wins with 52 losses.

It might be a good thing for the Tigers to add Tebow in terms of boosting the popularity of the team. But it is really hard to imagine the former football player playing for longer stretches.

If Tim gets signed by Detroit, the team will be hard-pressed to play him at this point of the season. This is true unless he is able to show amazing baseball skills in his workout later on.
