Rays' Chris Archer: Gets work in Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer pitched in a minor-league game Thursday against Double-A Chattanooga and was solid over 4.2 innings, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Rays ace allowed just two hits and two walks over his time on the mound while recording seven strikeouts. He threw a total of 74 pitches, 48 of which found the strike zone. The outing was intended to keep Archer on his regular pitching schedule after he pitched for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic last Friday. After operating in that high-stakes environment, Archer welcomed the opportunity to work on different aspects of his game Thursday. "It was nice I was able to some different things I wouldn't have been able to do in the Classic,'' he said. "The Classic is basically do or die, so you want to stick with what feels good that day. Today, (C Jesus) Sucre did a good job of forcing me to do some different things and I found a new confidence in a couple areas that I didn't necessarily have in spring training yet.''

Rays' Chris Archer: Expected to return from WBC this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer, who tossed four perfect innings for Team USA against Team Colombia in Friday's World Baseball Classic opener, is scheduled to rejoin the Rays this week, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Team USA failed to win its group, so Archer, who needs to pitch Thursday in order to remain on a normal schedule for an April 2 Opening Day start, is likely to throw in a minor league game on that day, as the Rays happen to be off. However, the possibility exists that Team USA officials may persuade the Rays to instead push Archer's start back by one day and let him pitch Friday in the second round of WBC play.

Rays' Chris Archer: Tosses four perfect frames against Colombia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer took a no-decision but was sharp in Friday's World Baseball Classic opening start against Colombia, as he didn't allow a baserunner and struck out three batters over four innings.

Archer was limited to just 41 pitches but looked like he was in midseason form Friday night. The Colombian lineup features only a few major leaguers, but still, Archer was efficient in mowing them down. He has been sharp in every appearance yet this spring, a good sign for those hoping for improvement over Archer's disappointing 2016 campaign.

Rays' Chris Archer: Tabbed for WBC opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer will start Team USA's game against Colombia to begin their World Baseball Classic campaign.

The 28-year-old will toe the rubber opposite Colombian starter Jose Quintana with the hopes of kicking off America's WBC time on a positive note. Archer posted a 4.02 ERA with a 10.4 K/9 last season and will look to build off those numbers throughout the tournament and during the regular season.

Rays' Chris Archer: Perfect in second spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer pitched three scoreless innings in his second spring start, a 1-0 Grapefruit League loss to the Orioles. He struck out five.

Archer and the Rays couldn't have asked for a better tune-up for his participation in the World Baseball Classic, as he averaged 95-96 mph on his fastball and went as high as 97. He also appeared to be experimenting with a new wrinkle, namely, a slight pause at the top of his delivery, which Archer explains is a means of "getting to a strong balance point". The Rays ace was especially pleased with the fact he was able to throw all of his pitches with what he felt was equal success. "I felt really good," Archer said. "The way everything was coming out of my hand. Changeup, fastball, breaking ball, everything felt good. ... I was full-intensity. Under control, but full-intensity today."
