Rays optioned RHP Ryne Stanek to Triple-A Durham.

Stanek was sent down despite owning a 2.45 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 7/2 K/BB ratio over 3 2/3 innings of work since being promoted. The move was more of a numbers game, as the Rays need a fresh arm after Saturday's doubleheader and Stanek has pitched each of the past two days. He should be back with the big club in short order.

Rays recalled RHP Ryne Stanek from Triple-A Durham.

Stanek has posted a 1.86 ERA and 17/6 K/BB ratio over 9 2/3 innings for Durham this season. The hard thrower also missed plenty of bats last season while in the majors (29 in 20 innings), but his lack of control (12 walks) got him into trouble (5.85 ERA).
May 6 - 9:03 AM

Rays recalled RHP Ryne Stanek from Triple-A Durham.

Stanek has a 6.39 ERA and 2.05 WHIP in 12 2/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level. He's a high-upside relief arm but can't be trusted in high-leverage situations yet.

Rays optioned RHP Ryne Stanek to Triple-A Durham.

The move clears a roster spot for Jake Odorizzi, who will rejoin the Rays' rotation on Wednesday against the Red Sox after missing two weeks with a lower back strain. Stanek has a 6.39 ERA and 2.05 WHIP in 12 2/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level.

Rays recalled RHP Ryne Stanek from Triple-A Durham.

Stanek was roughed up in a month-long stint with the big club earlier this season, but he's dominated at Durham with a 1.26 ERA and 47/14 K/BB ratio over 35 2/3 innings. He'll work in middle relief.

Rays optioned RHP Ryne Stanek to Triple-A Durham.

Stanek struck out 11 over 9 2/3 innings with the big club but surrendered five runs over his last two appearances. The hard thrower will get another shot eventually.

Rays recalled RHP Ryne Stanek from Triple-A Durham.

Erasmo Ramirez is moving to the starting rotation to replace Blake Snell, who was just sent down to Durham. That left a vacancy in the bullpen, which will now be filled by Stanek. The 25-year-old has fared well in the minors this year, collecting a 2.00 ERA over 18 innings for Durham. This is Stanek's first call-up to the big leagues.

Rays optioned RHP Ryne Stanek to Triple-A Durham.

A former first round pick, Stanek put up a 4.30 ERA and 113/48 K/BB ratio in 102 2/3 innings split between Double- and Triple-A this past season. The 25-year-old right-hander has yet to make his major league debut, but that could potentially come at some point in 2017 if the Rays need bullpen reinforcements.

Rays purchased the contract of RHP Ryne Stanek from Triple-A Durham.

Stanek, 25, held a 4.30 ERA and 113/48 K/BB ratio over 102 2/3 frames between Double- and Triple-A in 2016. The former first-round pick has started and relieved in the minors but finished last year in the bullpen and that figures to be how he breaks in with the big club.

Rays prospect RHP Ryne Stanek struggled on Wednesday, allowing five runs (four earned) on five hits and five walks in five innings for Double-A Montgomery.

It was easily Stanek’s worst outing of the season, as he struck out just two batters and threw only 43 of 87 pitches for strikes. Aside from Wednesday’s performance, though, the 2013 first-round pick is off to a great start in his first full professional campaign, with a 2.27 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, .199 opponents’ batting average and 52/29 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 75 1/3 innings (13 starts) between High-A Charlotte and Montgomery.

Rays right-handed pitching prospect Ryne Stanek struck out 12 batters in six innings for Low-A Bowling Green on Wednesday, allowing six hits, one walk, and four runs.

Out of the six hits, Stanek allowed two triples and a homer. The strikeouts are a great sign, but a pitcher with the resume possessed by Stanek (29th pick in 2013 draft out of Arkansas) should be dominating batters in the Low-A Midwest League. Despite the solid 9.3 K/9 ratio, opposing batters are hitting a solid .275/.330/.409 off Stanek.

Rays prospect RHP Ryne Stanek turned in another strong outing on Sunday, allowing one earned run on six hits in six innings for Low-A Bowling Green.

The 22-year-old struck out six batters and issued one walk in the outing. Stanek, the No. 29 pick in the 2013 draft, has been solid to begin his professional career, especially when considering he's coming off right hip (labrum) surgery in December. The right-hander has now been sharp in back-to-back starts, as he's allowed just one run on seven hits with 10 strikeouts in 12 frames. Overall, Stanek owns a 2.63 ERA and 22/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 27 1/3 innings (five starts).

Rays prospect RHP Ryne Stanek made his professional debut on Thursday, allowing one earned run on five hits in five innings for Low-A Bowling Green.

He struck out six batters without issuing a walk in the game. Stanek, the No. 29 pick in the 2013 draft, underwent surgery in December to repair his right hip labrum, but has recovered slightly faster than expected. The 22-year-old right-hander was widely considered one of the top pitchers in college baseball headed into 2013, but his inconsistency during the spring and subsequent hip injury caused him to fall to the Rays at the back end of the first round. If he can stay healthy, Stanek could emerge as a mid-rotation starter within a few years.

Ryne Stanek recently underwent surgery to repair his right hip labrum.

He will likely miss half of next season. It's unfortunate news for the No. 29 pick in July's draft. Stanek, a lauded prospect, fell in the draft due to minor concerns about his elbow. The 22-year-old right-hander has excellent fastball velocity and a good slider, but he will have to prove that he can stay healthy if a long big league career is in his future.
