The Atlanta Braves continue to contemplate signing Tim Tebow to a Minor League contract.
If they do so, the Braves would sign the former NFL quarterback because there is no risk involved.
Tebow would fill a need at Double-A Mississippi while serving as a non-roster player.
"Whatever Tim decides, the fact that he wants to play baseball is good for the game," John Coppolella said. "It's similar to when Michael Jordan or others have wanted to play. It's positive to draw this kind of interest to the game and make it a story because it's good for baseball."
If the Braves were to sign Tebow, they would provide a signing bonus of less than $100,000 and attempt to get him the reps he needs in the instructional league, which begins Sept. 17.
