Mini Mets Updates

It's a new minor league season too and my favorite Mini Mets have (mostly) been promoted from where they played last season.

Starting with my favorite mini catcher, Kai Gronauer is with the B-Mets in AA.  He's hitting .229 with one home run, 4 RBI, and one stolen base.  His OBP is .325.  Kai has been doing most of the catching for the B-Mets this season who have a 5-8 record.

Also on the B-Mets, Josh Satin is hitting .354 with two home runs, 8 RBI, and he also has one stolen base.  He's leading the offense of the light-hitting B-Mets.  He has a very impressive .436 OBP.

Josh and Kai are the B-Mets' leaders in OBP.

In AAA with the Bisons, Zach Lutz has a .308 batting average with one home run and five RBI.  He was getting most of the playing time at 3rd base before he went on the disabled list with a pulled hamstring.

Bisons' centerfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis has gotten off to a hot start, hitting .333 with two home runs, 4 RBI and one stolen base.  It is definitely nice to see him do well in AAA after he struggled a bit offensively when he moved up from AA last year.

Those four are the ones I'm going to be paying attention to this year.  They aren't necessarily big prospects but that just makes them more interesting.  You never know who could get a September call-up and then end up on the roster for the start of the next season.

Let's Go Mets!
