2013 MLB Draft results: RHP Ryne Stanek selected by Rays with the No. 29 pick

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

The Rays selected RHP Ryne Stanek with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft. The junior finished 10-2 with a 1.39 ERA pitching for the No. 4 Arkansas Razorbacks this year.

The Tampa Bay Rays have selected Arkansas Razorbacks pitcher Ryne Stanek with the 29th pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft.

Stanek entered the 2010 draft with thoughts of the first-round on his mind, but he ended up slipping down to the third round. Rather then join the Seattle Mariners, Stanek set off to Arkansas to boost his draft stock. He was the lynchpin for the No. 4 ranked Razorbacks, going 10-2 with a 1.39 ERA in 16 starts his this season.

Stanek's repertoire includes a mid-90s fastball that tops out at 97 mph. He also throws an above-average slider and has a curveball that can be tricky to make contact with.

Stanek has a solid grip on four pitches and has top-of-the-rotation upside. He did struggle with command earlier in his senior season, however, and has some odd pitching mechanics, which might cause issues later in his career.
