Rays' Chris Archer: Remains confident in his process despite struggles
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Archer feels that his struggles this season stem mainly from his performance in small stretches within games, and that he is still throwing the ball well overall, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Despite a major league-worst 10 losses, as well as a 4.70 ERA and 1.43 WHIP, the young right-hander remains confident in his ability to turn the season around. Archer is trying to remain focused on his process more so than the results and in executing enough of his pitches to give his team a chance to win each time he takes the mound. While some of the 27-year-old's metrics appear to corroborate his belief that he's firing away as effectively as ever, such as a 10.57 K/9 rate that is the second-highest of his career, his BB/9 and HR/9 rates, ERA and WHIP, along with the aforementioned losses, are on pace to be the worst he's ever generated in those respective categories. Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey doesn't necessarily disagree with Archer's assessment, but also seems to feel that a thoroughly frank self-appraisal is needed at this point in the season. "But the process has not been good overall either. You may walk a guy leading off an inning you have no business walking and he ends up coming around and scoring, that is not a good process," said Hickey. "I guess you have to identify what the process is and be a good, solid, honest evaluator of whether or not you actually executed what it is you set out to do. I think wins and losses, they count very much, especially at the end of the day."

Rays' Chris Archer: Racks up loss No. 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer fell to 4-10 after allowing four runs on six hits and a pair of walks in six innings Wednesday against Cleveland. He struck out five.

The first inning did him in, as Archer gave up a two-run homer to Jason Kipnis and then an RBI single to Jose Ramirez before settling down and limiting the Indians to one run over his remaining five frames. Unfortunately, there seems to always be something with Archer -- it's been more than seven weeks, dating back to May 6, since he had a scoreless outing. Worse, he's given up four or more runs in six of his last nine outings. The strikeouts are still typically there, but the walks remain an issue and the long balls an even bigger one -- he's averaging a homer per start over his first 16 outings, and a date with the Red Sox next week doesn't promise to help in that regard.

Rays' Chris Archer: Loses ninth game of the season Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer (4-9) allowed four runs, three of which were earned, on six hits and three walks while striking out eight over six innings to take the loss Friday against the Giants.

Despite having excellent strikeout numbers, Archer needed 107 pitches to get through six innings while the Rays' offense was unable to give him any run support, leading to his ninth loss of the season. He's now given up at least three earned runs in five of his last six starts, and he has a disappointing 4.60 ERA to go along with a 1.44 WHIP. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Indians.

Rays' Chris Archer: Loses eight game of 2016 versus Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer (4-8) pitched very well but was tagged with a loss in the 4-3 defeat against the Astros on Saturday. Archer allowed three runs on six hits, struck out eight and walked none in 7.2 innings.

It's been a tough season for Archer. He's allowed two or fewer runs seven times and struck out at least seven hitters on six occasions, but he's just 4-8 with a 4.61 ERA. Part of the problem is Archer has also yielded at least six runs in three of his outings. Home runs have been an issue too, as he's given up a homer in 10 of his last 13 appearances. Archer will be looking to get back on track in his next start Friday against the Giants.

Rays' Chris Archer: Strikes out a dozen in win over Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Archer (4-7) struck out 12 while allowing three runs on five hits and three walks over six innings in a win Monday over Arizona.

Archer recorded his first quality start in his past four appearances, but even his good starts this season haven't been without their blemishes. He was touched up for a pair of home runs, including one by his pitching counterpart Robbie Ray. The swing-and-miss stuff is still there, as Archer has a fantastic 10.3 K/9, but he has already given up 12 home runs in just 66.1 innings -- the same number of homers he allowed over 194.2 innings back in 2014, when he recorded a 3.33 ERA. His groundball rate hasn't changed, so that's not the problem, but if Archer can't figure out whatever it is that's ailing him in the home run department, his ERA isn't going to get much lower than its current mark of 4.75.
