Tim Tebow has received interest from about 5-6 MLB teams, according to a report.

Tebow held his workout for professional baseball scouts on Tuesday at USC’s Dedeaux Field in Los Angeles. He ran a 60-yard dash, threw balls from the outfield to show his arm strength, caught balls in the outfield, took batting practice, and then took swings off live pitchers.

Dozens of media members as well as over 20 scouts were present for the workout.

Baseball America‘s Taylor Blake Ward says about 5-6 MLB teams have expressed interest in signing the former Denver Broncos QB.

Tebow’s best asset as a player seems to be his power as a hitter. He showed around average speed and defense abilities, but well above average power.

Here’s a breakdown of how Tebow did in each aspect of the workout.

Most scouts in attendance apparently timed Tebow in the 6.7-second range for the 60, which is around average to slightly above average for an MLB player.
