The Rays placed Stanek on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a sore right hip, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Stanek likely picked up the injury in his relief appearance in Friday's loss to the White Sox, when he served up a run on three hits and struck out one in his lone inning of work. Since the injury is characterized as soreness rather than a hip strain, Stanek shouldn't be in store for a lengthy IL stint. Hunter Wood was recalled from Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move and could fill Stanek's role as an opening pitcher and middle reliever.

Stanek was thrust into the increasingly unfamiliar position of a late-inning, high-leverage scenario and came up considerably short. There wasn't much suspense in terms of whether Stanek would be able to successfully carry out the task of preserving a 4-4 tie upon entering in the 11th inning, as he allowed a leadoff solo home run to Aaron Judge. After retiring the next two batters, Stanek ultimately yielded a three-run homer to Brett Gardner following a single by Gleyber Torres and a double by Gio Urshela. It was the second multi-run outing for Stanek in his last four appearances, a rocky stretch his ERA has gone from 2.47 to 3.26.

Since Ryan Yarbrough worked multiple innings Monday before being optioned to Triple-A Durham and Yonny Chirinos is slated to take the hill Thursday against the Yankees, the Rays won't have their top two bulk-relief candidates available behind Stanek.

Stanek has maxed out at two innings this season and likely won't be asked to push past that total.

He has strong numbers overall -- 0-1 record, 2.70 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 36.2 innings -- but as is the case with all openers, he doesn't pitch long enough to factor into the decision and thus his fantasy utility is limited.
