  • Twins' Chris Archer: Tosses four innings in loss

    Archer (2-6) took the loss during Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Angels, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts in four innings. Archer was provided a two-run lead before he took the mound but gave it back after surrendering three two-out baserunners in the third. He fell in line for the loss when he permitted an additional run in the fourth. The 33-year-old has lost three straight decisions, during which he's allowed 17 runs in 21 innings across five turns. Archer has pitched to a decent 4.15 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 20 starts, though he's yet to eclipse five innings in any appearance. He'll look to get back in the win column next weekend against the Rangers.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Throws five innings in no-decision

    Archer did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits and zero walks over five innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out four. The veteran right-hander was effective through five innings, as he held a strong Toronto offense to just two runs through five innings and did not walk a batter for the first time in 10 starts. Sunday's effort was also the first time that Archer has completed five innings since June 30. He has only done so four times in 18 games this season, recording just two wins in the process. He looks to get back in the win column against a struggling Angels team next weekend.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Strikes out eight in short start

    Archer allowed two runs on two hits and three walks with eight strikeouts over 4.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Tigers on Tuesday. Archer continues to operate on a reduced workload. He threw 77 pitches (49 strikes) in this contest, and he again ran out of steam in the fifth inning as he allowed the Tigers to tie the game at 2-2. Archer has yet to cover more than five innings in an appearance this year, which makes it difficult for him to qualify for wins. He owns a 4.05 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 62:40 K:BB across 73.1 innings in 18 starts overall. The right-hander is tentatively scheduled for a home start versus the Blue Jays this weekend.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Awful in Wednesday's loss

    Archer (2-5) took the loss Wednesday, surrendering six runs on three hits and six walks over three-plus innings as the Twins fell 10-4 to the Brewers. He struck out two. The right-hander threw only 36 of 78 pitches for strikes before getting the hook after walking the bases loaded to begin the fourth inning, and Archer had to watch from the dugout as all three baserunners came around to score, blowing open a 3-3 tie. The 33-year-old has been tagged for 10 runs in 7.2 innings since coming off the IL right before the All-Star break, inflating his ERA by nearly a full run to 4.04. If the Twins add rotation depth at the trade deadline, Archer could be the one to lose his spot.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Struggles in fifth inning in return

    Archer (2-4) took the loss Sunday against the White Sox, allowing four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five in 4.2 innings. Archer pitched quite well through the first four innings, allowing just two singles and recording all five of his strikeouts. After retiring the first two batters of the fifth inning on two pitches, the wheels came off for the 33-year-old as he walked Seby Zavala on four pitches and then gave up hits to the next three batters before being removed. It was Archer's first start since June 30 after spending time on the injured list with left hip tightness. Despite the poor showing Sunday, it has been a solid first half for the veteran, as he's posted a 3.41 ERA through 66 innings and 16 starts.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Officially activated from IL

    Archer (hip) was activated from the 15-day injured list and is starting Sunday's contest against the White Sox. After missing the minimum 15 days with hip tightness, Archer will be back on the mound for Sunday's final game before the All-Star break. The right-hander has produced a strong 3.08 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 61.1 innings in 15 starts this season, though his 47 punchouts leave much to be desired. He'll look to finish the first half strong as the Twins take on the White Sox.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Confirmed as Sunday's starter

    Archer (hip) will return from the injured list to start Sunday against the White Sox, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports. Reports from earlier in the week indicated Archer was on track to pitch in Sunday's first-half finale, and that's indeed what will happen. He'll wind up missing only the minimum 15 days due to hip tightness. Prior to the injury, Archer posted a 3.08 ERA in 15 starts, though his poor 17.9 percent strikeout rate and 11.5 percent walk rate told a different story.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Poised to start Sunday

    Archer appears on track to return from the 15-day injured list to start Sunday's game against the White Sox after the Twins optioned No. 5 starter Josh Winder to Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. After Archer completed a three-inning, 50-pitch simulated game Tuesday, manager Rocco Baldelli hinted the right-hander could be ready to start the Twins' final game before the All-Star break, and Winder's demotion makes that an even greater likelihood. Before Archer is confirmed to start Sunday, he'll likely throw a bullpen session Thursday or Friday as he looks to prove that he's fully recovered from his left hip injury.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Could return from IL on Sunday

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said that Archer (hip) could return from the injured list for Sunday's game against the White Sox after the right-hander threw three simulated innings Tuesday, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Archer threw 50 pitches in the session, so he could be ready to make an abbreviated start Sunday if the Twins want to give rookie Josh Winder some extra rest heading into the All-Star break. The more likely outcome is that Archer remains on the shelf through the break, however, given that his placement on the IL in the first place was in part precautionary because of his injury history.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Resumes throwing

    Archer (hip) was spotted throwing on the field Tuesday prior to the Twins' game against the Brewers, John Shipley of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The activity is a sign that Archer isn't being shut down as a result of his tight left hip, which forced him to the injured list July 2. Though Archer will be eligible to return for the Twins' final game of the first half July 17 against the White Sox, he's unlikely to be activated before the All-Star break.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Placed on 15-day injured list

    Archer was placed on the 15-day injured list retroactive to July 2 with left hip tightness Tuesday. It was announced earlier in the day that Archer was scratched from Tuesday's start, and the reason for that move is now known. Archer will be eligible to be activated on the final day of the first half, and according to Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com, manager Rocco Baldelli is hopeful he will do so. Josh Winder will start in Archer's place Tuesday and is the favorite to remain in the rotation until Archer returns.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Scratched from Tuesday's start

    Archer won't make his start Tuesday versus the White Sox for an undisclosed reason, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Details on Archer's absence figure to come out after Tuesday's game, if not sooner. The veteran righty allowed one run in his last outing despite walking six batters in four innings, and he now has a 3.08 ERA through 15 starts this season. Josh Winder will start Tuesday's contest if it isn't rained out.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Struggles to find strike zone

    Archer allowed one earned run on one hit and six walks while striking out two across four innings Thursday against the Guardians. He did not factor into the decision. Archer walked four consecutive batters in the second inning, and he also threw a wild pitch and hit a batter with a pitch during his outing. Despite throwing only 45 of his 90 pitches for strikes, he managed to escape relatively unscathed. Archer has allowed one or fewer earned runs in five of his last six starts, though he's failed to complete five frames on three occasions. Overall, he owns a 3.08 ERA and a 47:30 K:BB across 61.1 innings for the season.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Earns second victory

    Archer (2-3) earned the win against Colorado on Saturday, pitching five scoreless innings during which he allowed one hit and one walk while striking out five. It was another short start for Archer, as he tossed only 78 pitches. However, he was able to complete five innings for just the third time this season and was rewarded with his second win. Archer's lack of deep outings is more a product of a predetermined plan by Minnesota than ineffectiveness -- in fact, he's fared well with a 3.14 ERA and 1.22 WHIP on the campaign. He has been even better of late, posting a 1.57 ERA and 0.91 WHIP across 23 innings over his past five starts, though his 16:8 K:BB during that span is less inspiring.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Another short start Sunday

    Archer (1-3) took the loss Sunday versus the Diamondbacks. He allowed two runs on three hits and struck out three while walking none in four innings. This was just the second time in his last seven outings that Archer has allowed multiple runs, but he's only completed five innings in two of those outings. The right-hander's rarely been used for long outings this season, which makes it difficult for him to pitch deep enough to qualify for wins or earn quality starts. He's logged a 3.44 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 40:23 K:BB in 52.1 innings across 13 starts. He's lined up for a home start versus the Rockies next weekend.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Limited to just four innings

    Archer didn't factor in the decision against Seattle on Monday, allowing one unearned run on four hits and two walks while striking out three over four innings. Archer gave up only one run for the fifth time in his past six starts, and the tally against him Monday was unearned. Minnesota had a 2-1 lead after the fourth inning, but he wasn't allowed to come back out for the fifth and was thus denied a chance at a win. Short outings have been par for the course for Archer this season -- he's completed five frames only twice in 12 appearances despite a fine 3.35 ERA. It's clear that the brief starts are part of Minnesota's plan for the veteran after he logged just 19.1 big-league innings between 2020 and 2021 combined. That could help keep him healthy throughout the campaign, but it will prevent him from piling up enough counting stats to make him viable in most mixed fantasy formats.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Grabs first win of 2022

    Archer (1-2) earned the win Wednesday after he tossed five innings, giving up one run on two hits and four walks while striking out two against the Yankees. Archer allowed an RBI single to Gio Urshela in the fourth inning, accounting for all the damage against him Wednesday. It was the second consecutive start where the right-hander reached five innings after not having done so in his first nine outings. Archer has surrendered two runs over 10 frames in his last two outings, lowering his ERA from 4.19 to 3.65 in 11 starts this season.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Reaches five innings

    Archer allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out three across five innings Thursday against the Tigers. He did not factor into the decision. Archer completed at least five innings for the first time this season, though he still threw only 57 pitches. He's quietly allowed only one earned run in three of his last four outings, though his extremely limited volume hurts his ability to rack up both strikeouts and wins. Overall, Archer owns a 3.89 ERA and a 32:17 K:BB across 39.1 innings on the campaign.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Ineffective against Royals

    Archer (0-2) was charged with the loss Saturday after he pitched four innings, allowing five runs (three earned) on seven hits while striking out one against the Royals. Archer surrendered one run in both the first and third innings before giving up three runs in the top of the fourth. He was once again unable to work deep into the game, failing to reach five innings pitched for the ninth consecutive start to begin the season. After giving up two runs over eight innings in his last two starts before Saturday, Archer allowed a season-high seven hits while being charged with three earned runs. His season-long numbers now stand at a 4.19 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 29 punchouts over 34.1 innings in nine starts.

  • Twins' Chris Archer: Pitches well, not deep

    Archer pitched four innings, giving up one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four in Monday's win over the Tigers. He did not factor into the decision. Once again Archer pitched well, but he didn't last long enough to qualify for a potential win. He has now pitched exactly four innings in four of his last five starts, giving up a total of five runs over 16 innings in those outings. The Twins seem satisfied limiting his innings, but Archer's success on the mound may force their hand and he could see deeper run as the season goes on. The 33-year-old now owns a 3.86 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with 28 punchouts in 30.1 innings over eight starts.
