The Braves have had “multiple” conversations about a potential “low risk” signing of Tim Tebow,GM JohnCoppolella confirmed.And their interest ismoreabout the former Florida and NFL QB’s on-field potential than selling tickets at minor-league ballparks in SEC country.MORE: Why Tebow makes sense for Braves”We are interested in Tim because of his potential as a baseball player, not as a gate attraction,” Coppolella said (via “We have spoken with his representatives multiple times and all parties involved want this to be a pure baseball thing on every Ken Griffey Jersey level.”Tebow, 29, worked out last week in Los Angeles for 46 scouts representing 28 teams, including the Braves, who had two scouts there.The Braves’ interest in Tebow first reported by ESPN and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution makes sense on a lot of levels, according to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal: He would cost almost nothing, likely a deal worth le s than $100,000.MORE: Why we should all want to be like Tebow He wouldn’tblock top prospects since he won’t take a spot on the team’s 40-man roster and could start at Double- Hisashi Iwakuma Jersey A, a reach for Tebow but a level atwhich the Braves are prospect poor. He showed enough talent toreally be intriguing to theBraves. (See Coppolella’s comment above.)
