Chris Archer replaces Alex Cobb as Rays' Opening Day starter
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rays manager Kevin Cash named Chris Archer his Opening Day starter on April 6 against the Orioles at Tropicana Field, per Tampa Tribune.

Archer will be replacing the injured Alex Cobb, who is not expected to be ready for the start of the season due to forearm tendinitis. Cash revealed that he's not ready to publicly announce the next two starters in his rotation.

Archer, 26, went 10-9 with a 3.33 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP and 173:72 K:BB ratio over 32 starts (194 2/3 innings). This will be his first career Opening Day start in the majors. Archer, who has made an Opening Day start at Triple-A in 2013, has downplayed his assigned role, per MLB.com.

"Maybe that's why I wouldn't treat it differently. Because it's just a baseball game. it's the first one of the year, but the first one's no more or less important than the last one," Archer said.

Rays lining up rotation with Archer, Odorizzi and Karns to pitch Saturday
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Rays manager Kevin Cash announced that starters Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Nathan Karns all will pitch in the team's game Saturday, a sign that they are lining up their starting rotation for Opening Day, per MLB.com.

The team's Nos. 1 and 3 starters - Alex Cobb and Drew Smyly - will start the season on the disabled list, leaving Archer as the potential Opening Day starter. 

"Everything goes into lining up the rotation now," Cash said. "We're all trying to accommodate them as much as possible, because a lot of moving parts and stuff like that. I don't think anything is set in stone."

Chris Archer not worried about Rays' Opening Day status
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer told reporters he's not changing his mentality because of Alex Cobb's injury, per the Associated Press. Archer is a likely candidate to be Tampa Bay's Opening Day starter. On Wednesday, he allowed one hit and three walks while striking out three over four scoreless frames to lead his club to a 9-3 victory.

"My mentality is the same," Archer said. "Our pitch count is roughly 100. I'm trying to make the most of that. I've pitched nine innings before, so I know that it's possible. So that's my goal every single time I go out whether I'm pitching April 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th. It doesn't matter to me because I know what I'm capable of."

Rays' Archer impressed with Rene Rivera's presence behind the plate
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer said he was impressed with the way catcher Rene Rivera performed behind the plate during Sunday's spring game against the Phillies, per The Tampa Tribune.

Archer added he likes the way Rivera holds his mitt for a moment after catching a pitch, which allows the pitcher to see how much he is missing his spot.

“Pitches that you just miss on, instead of just taking them out of the zone and tossing it back to you, he shows you, and that gives you confidence as a pitcher,” Archer said. “He’s back there like, ‘Let’s go, baby, let’s go,’ communicating to you while you’re right here about to throw a pitch, and for me, that’s nice. He’s in front of you, but at the same time, he’s behind you 100 percent.”
