SP,RP - MIA - IL10
Marlins reliever Ryne Stanek is dealing with back stiffness and hasn't pitched in a week. According to manager Don Mattingly, Stanek has a stiff lower back, and the team is trying to keep an eye on it.
Stanek was acquired from the Rays last season and was seen as one of the top late-inning options for the Marlins this season. While Brandon Kintzler is expected to serve as the Miami closer to start the season, many think that Stanek could take over the role at some point. Monitor his status over the next week to see if he is able to return to game action. The Marlins open up the season on March 26 against the Phillies.
Marlins reliever Ryne Stanek struck out one batter and did not allow a baserunner during his one inning of work in Tuesday's win over the New York Mets. He has yet to allow an earned run through four innings thus far in the Spring.
Brandon Kintzler is penciled in as the closer in Miami, but Stanek is seen by many as likely to take over that job at some point in 2020. He is worth a late-round draft pick as a potential source of saves in leagues where he can be stashed.
Ryne Stanek is currently in line to be the Marlins' Opening Day closer with little to no competition looming.
Steamer has a optimistic projection on Stanek, boasting a 30.3% strikeout rate, 15.3% swinging strike rate and 3.58 ERA. If those projections are anywhere near that Stanek could certainly return value at his current NFBC ADP of 484.
Ryne Stanek pitched two shutout innings in the Rays’ 9-4 victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday. He allowed one hit while striking out three.
Stanek excelled in his role as the opener for the Rays. He finished the season 2-3 with a 2.98 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 81 strikeouts in 66 1/3 and 29 games started. Stanek has been the cog that makes the motor go in the Rays bullpen games and is the odds on favorite to start the most games of any pitcher in the 2019 season.
Ryne Stanek received the win against the Red Sox after pitching a perfect sixth. He struck out one while lowering his ERA to 2.53.
In a strange turn of events Ryan Yarbrough got the start and Stanek came in to relieve him. This time Stanek received the win when the Rays took the lead in the bottom of the 6th. Stanek has continued his great season but does not have fantasy value.
