Ryne Stanek is a Mac-N-Seitz alum who currently plays for the University of Arkansas
High School: Blue Valley High School, KS
Drafted: 3rd round pick of the 2010 draft by the Seattle Mariners but did not sign and stayed with Arkansas.
Scouting Report: Ryne Stanek is a 2010 RHP with a 6'4'', 180 lb. frame from Overland Park, KS who attends Blue Valley HS. Slender young build, minimal present strength. Clean delivery, drives to the plate, long loose arm action, 3/4's release, good out front. FB steady upper 80's, projects more in future.
CB shows nice sharpness, big 2-plane break, potential plus pitch, tends to aim CB to LHH'ers, good feel for change up. Good 3 pitch mix with idea on command, should continue to get stronger. Showed ability with the bat, some power potential.
When scouts saw Stanek's 6-foot-4, 180 pound build and his ability to maintain a 90-92 mph fastball on the showcase circuit last summer, it was easy for them to project that he might throw in the mid-90s one day. That day came sooner than expected, as Stanek worked at 91-96 mph in his first game this spring. He kept that velocity all spring, doing so with little effort. Stanek is one of the cornerstones of a deep Arkansas team.
