Rays' Chris Archer: Suffers 14th loss despite strong outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer (5-14) allowed three runs (one earned) on four hits over seven innings, taking the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers despite striking out eight without a walk.

Archer has demonstrated better control of late, walking two or fewer hitters in each of his last four starts after accomplishing that feat just four times in his previous 11 outings. The 27-year-old's dismal 1-7 record in his last nine starts stems in part from pitching for a Rays team that struggles to score runs, so his stock could get a boost should a trade to a contender come to fruition. If Archer remains a member of the Rays, look for him to next take the mound Monday against the Royals.

Rays' Chris Archer: Drawing strong trade interest around majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer is one of several Rays pitchers drawing strong trade interest around the majors, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 27-year-old has endured the most difficult season of his career, matching his career high in losses (13) while giving up five or more runs in six starts. Archer has certainly shown flashes, however, and has actually enjoyed his best month of the season in July, during which he's generated a respectable 3.96 ERA over four starts. There's plenty of firepower in his arm as well, with his 147 whiffs over 123.1 innings ranking at the top of the AL and fifth in the majors. Given Archer's considerable potential and velocity, he might shape up as the most tantalizing among the three Rays starters (along with Matt Moore and Jake Odorizzi) to other clubs despite his current struggles.

Rays' Chris Archer: Picks up fifth win of season in Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Archer pitched six strong innings at Coors Field on Wednesday, allowing four hits and no home runs while striking out 11 and walking just two en route to his fifth win of the season.

Archer has been somewhat of a disappointment for fantasy owners this season, but rewarded patience with his splendid outing Wednesday in a tough matchup pitching in Colorado. While his ERA still sits at 4.60 and he has just five wins, Archer has struck out a whopping 147 batters, good for best in the AL. While his 51 walks don't look terrible when compared to all those strikeouts, they too are the most for any pitcher in the AL this season, and are a major reason for Archer's struggles. He'll hope to continue the form he found Wednesday when he takes the mound against the Dodgers next Tuesday.

Rays' Chris Archer: Takes 13th loss despite solid start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Archer (4-13) gave up four earned runs on seven hits and a walk over 7.1 innings in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Orioles. He struck out six.

The hard-throwing righty may ironically have had his best stuff of the season Friday, but he was still saddled with a 13th loss, equaling the career-worst figure in that category that he posted in 2015. Archer notched a whopping 22 swinging strikes and found the strike zone on 71 of his 105 pitches overall. Staked to a 3-1 lead after three innings, the 27-year-old brought about his own demise by allowing an RBI double to Pedro Alvarez in the fifth, a fielder's choice to Matt Wieters in the sixth, and an eighth-inning, 406-foot solo shot to Jonathan Schoop that gave the Orioles a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Archer will try to put an end to his six-start losing streak next Wednesday against the Rockies.

Rays' Chris Archer: Drops fifth straight decision Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Archer (4-12) gave up five earned runs on seven hits and two walks in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Red Sox. He struck out three.

The hard-throwing right-hander's nightmare season continues as he dropped a fifth straight decision, including his second to the Red Sox over his last three starts. Archer fell behind frequently Friday, a recipe for disaster against a patient and lethal Boston lineup. The 27-year-old was able to notch first-pitch strikes on only nine of the 26 hitters he faced and induced a modest 10 swinging strikes over 116 pitches. Archer is now one loss away from equaling the career-high mark that he set last season, and his four wins currently rank as his lowest total in that category since his first-year cup of coffee in 2012 when he fired only 29.1 innings. He'll look to gather himself over the All-Star break and salvage his season in the second half.
