Astros' Ryne Stanek: Avoids arbitration
Stanek signed a one-year, $3.6 million contract with Houston on Friday to avoid arbitration, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
In his final year of arbitration eligibility, Stanek receives a healthy raise from his $2.1 million salary last season. The 31-year-old reliever was impressive out of the bullpen in 2022, posting a miniscule 1.15 ERA and 1.23 WHIP over 54.2 innings with 17 holds.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Ryne Stanek: Earns first win
Stanek (1-0) allowed a walk in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the win Monday against the Royals.
Stanek entered the game in the ninth inning with the score knotted at six and earned his first win of the season when Yordan Alvarez homered in the bottom of the frame. Stanked turned in his 24th consecutive scoreless appearance and has maintained a 24:9 K:BB across 20 innings in that span. Stanek has an excellent 0.67 ERA with eight holds on the season, though he is likely to be limited to a setup role.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Ryne Stanek: Converts first save
Stanek allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out one in one inning to record a save against the Rangers on Wednesday.
With Ryan Pressly (knee) on the injured list, fantasy managers have been eager to see who would notch Houston's first save in his stead. Hector Neris has been a popular pickup, but he pitched the eighth and registered a hold Wednesday, with Stanek given the opportunity to close things out in the ninth. The right-hander made things interesting, allowing a run on a walk and a double before striking out Kole Calhoun with the tying run on third base to end the game. Pressly may not be far from a return, and Stanek isn't a lock for the team's next save opportunity while the No. 1 closer is out, so the latter is only a speculative short-term pickup in fantasy....

Astros' Ryne Stanek: Available despite tight back
Stanek is experiencing some tightness in his back Saturday but is available to pitch against the Mariners, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Save chances are available temporarily in Houston with Ryan Pressly on the injured list due to right knee inflammation. Stanek is one of the top candidates for those opportunities but might not get them if he's not at full strength, especially as he may be behind Hector Neris on the depth chart even if fully healthy....
