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.

Rays agreed to terms with first-round pick RHP Ryne Stanek.

The deal was passed along by Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. It's not clear how much Stanek will receive, but the assigned slot value for the No. 29 pick was $1.7583 million. Stanek fell in the draft due to minor concerns about his elbow, but the Rays are convinced he's healthy and he could rise through the system quickly.

According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays are moving closer to a deal with Ryne Stanek.

Stanek was selected 29th overall out of the University of Arkansas in last month's draft. The 21-year-old right-hander has excellent fastball velocity and a good slider, but he's a fairly raw pitching prospect and will likely move slowly through the Rays' minor league system.

Rays selected University of Arkansas RHP Ryne Stanek with the 29th overall pick.

Stanek, no relation to Ryne Sandberg, might be the steal of the first round at No. 29. The 21-year-old has struggled with consistency in college, but he has arguably the best fastball in the draft, a quality slider and the making of a legit curveball. The Rays have plenty of pitching in front of him, which is probably for the best. He's not as close to being major league ready as some of the other college hurlers.
