Fantasy Analysis | 1409265602
Drew Smyly must-own, but not must-start
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Drew Smyly probably isn't as good as he's shown since joining the Rays. Granted, you shouldn't put anything past their coaching staff -- Alex Cobb, Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi all appear well on their way to maximizing their talents -- but in his last four starts, Smyly has been as good as the man he was traded for, perennial Cy Young contender David Price. No transformation is that sudden.

The most telling number for me is that one that falls well short of Price's standards: During that four-start stretch, Smyly has averaged 6.7 strikeouts per nine innings. And yet he's allowed 11 hits in 30 2/3 innings. The result is an impossibly low .111 BABIP.

Of course, one look at his 0.88 ERA during that four-start stretch would tell you it's something he can't sustain, so maybe I'm going overboard digging into the advanced numbers there. My point is this: He's good, but with middle-of-the-road strikeout ability and an occasional vulnerability to home runs, I don't see him becoming start-him-every-week good.

In a relief pitcher spot in a points league, maybe, but otherwise, keep an eye on the matchups and weigh your alternatives.

Chris Archer tosses seven one-run innings vs. Blue Jays
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Chris Archer wasn't a factor in Sunday's decision, allowing one earned run on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out six in his team's 2-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

Archer was spotted a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning and held the Blue Jays scoreless until a sacrifice fly tied the game in the bottom of the seventh. It was his fourth straight start with one earned run allowed. Archer owns a 3.09 ERA and 147:60 K:BB ratio in 157 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox Friday.

Chris Archer sunk by errors, control issues
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Chris Archer struggled with his control Tuesday against the Tigers.

Archer allowed four runs, one earned, on five hits over 5 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked five during the outing. The fifth inning was a problem for Archer. Archer put two men on base before inducing a ground ball to first base. James Loney made a throwing error, which loaded the bases. Archer then fell apart. A walk brought in the first run of the game. A groundout brought in the next run, and a Miguel Cabrera single drove in a third run. Archer was done in by walks the following inning. After putting two men on via the free pass, Archer gave up a run-scoring single. He was pulled at that point.

Archer received the no-decision for his effort. He’ll take on the Blue Jays in his next start.

Chris Archer dominates against Rangers
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Chris Archer turned in a dominant outing against the Rangers Wednesday.

Archer allowed one run on four hits over seven innings. He struck out 12 and walked two. Archer threw 108 pitches during the start. Archer had some control issues early on, issuing both his walks in the first inning. He escaped the inning unscathed, and didn't run into any control issues the rest of the start. Archer didn't allow his first hit until the fifth inning. That base runner would eventually come around to score the only run against Archer. He tossed two more scoreless innings before his day was done.

With the win, Archer improved to 8-6. His next start will come against the Tigers.
