If you look at his numbers you might not think there is anything special about Gronkiewicz. The 28-year-old finished 2006 with a 3.27 ERA for Triple-A Syracuse, but the numbers are skewed. Over a period of three days in late July, Gronkiewcz had perhaps his two worst outing of his career. On July 23 he allowed three runs in 2/3 innings, and two days later he allotted four runs, without recording an out. If you eliminate those two outs Gronkiewicz' ERA drops to 1.88.
Injuries played a role in his 2006 season causing him to miss about a month of the season in May. Plagued by a bad back, the right-hander came back and still pitched effectively, but he understands the injury possibly derailed a dream.
