Stanek will serve as the Rays' opening pitcher in Friday's series opener against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Stanek owns a 3.00 ERA through five appearances (six innings) this month, three of which have been starts. While he doesn't pitch deep enough into games to factor into the decision, Stanek owns a useful 2.45 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 62:20 K:BB through 47.2 innings this season.
