Prospects in 2011 – Kai Gronauer – Binghamton Mets



We are taking a look back at the 2011 season in the Minor Leagues for our European prospects.

Kai Gronauer

Birth Date: 11/28/1986 in Solingen, Germany
Throws/Bats: Right/Right
Organization: New York Mets
Position: Catcher

2011 Season: Except for some rehab time in the Gulf Coast League following a lengthy hamstring injury the 25-year-old German catcher Kai Gronauer spent the summer with the Double-A affiliate of the New York Mets in Binghamton of the Eastern League. He batted a solid .251/.327/.374 overall in 58 games (52 at Double-A). He hit four homeruns, one triple, eight doubles, scored 21 runs and drove in 26. He didn’t make another huge step forward, but also not back. During the IBAF Baseball World Cup in Panama he only was able to impress defensively, remaining cold at the plate. He stayed in Panama City to play in the Winter League for month to make up for the missed time during the summer. 2012 should be a key year for Gronauer determining if he can make it to the big leagues or not.
Career Stats: 229 GP, 878 PA, 784 AB, 93 R, 14 HR, 102 RBI, 60 BB, 146 SO, AVG .272, OBP .336, SLG .370
Highest Level: Double-A (2011)
