ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The Red Sox will be represented when former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow holds a workout for baseball scouts on Aug. 30 in Los Angeles.

“Sure, we’ll have somebody there,” president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told the Globe on Tuesday.

ESPN reported that 20 teams are expected to attend the workout.

Tebow, 29, has been working out with former major league Chad Moeller in hopes of being signed as an outfielder.

Tebow played in 35 NFL games from 2010-12 with the Broncos and Jets. He signed with the Patriots in 2013 and the Eagles in 2015 but was released before the season both times.


Tebow has not played baseball since 2005, his junior year of high school.
