9/14/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Rays starter Chris Archer tossed seven innings and allowed one run as the Rays beat the Blue Jays, 6-5, on Sunday.
Insight: Unfortunately, the Tampa Bay bullpen blew the lead, so Archer did not get the victory. Rays second baseman Sean Rodriguez's sacrifice fly in the 10th proved to be the game winner. Archer is 9-8 with a 3.54 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 180 and 2/3 innings this season.
 
Hot8/24/2014 5:33:00 PM

Insight: Archer walks a lot of batters (3.43 BB/9), but he has given up just six homers all year and struck out 147 batters in 157 1/3 innings. The right-hander held the Blue Jays to one run on six hits and struck out six over seven innings Sunday.
 
8/8/2014 7:46:00 PM
Description: Rays starter Chris Archer struck out six and allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits in six innings Friday against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Insight: Archer was a Cubs farmhand in 2009-10 before being included in the Matt Garza deal. He's followed up a strong rookie year with a 3.33 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP and 123 Ks in 137 2/3 innings.
 
Hot6/19/2014 10:37:00 PM

Hot6/19/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer has posted a 1.06 ERA in his last six starts.
Insight: Since mid-May Archer has been excellent, yielding just four earned runs in his last 34 innings pitched. Don't be fooled by his 3-4 record, he should post good numbers against Houston on Thursday.
 
Hot6/3/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer pitched well Tuesday in a loss to Miami.
Insight: He only allowed one run in seven innings. Archer got off to a rocky start this year but he's really picked it up over his last four starts (1.09 ERA, 31 K's in 24 2/3 IP). Make sure he's in your lineup next time out against the Mariners.
 
5/23/2014 10:58:00 PM
Description: Rays right-hander Chris Archer tied a career-high with 11 punchouts Friday in a no-decision against the Red Sox.
Insight: He did it at a snail's pace, often taking 30 seconds in between pitches. Archer (3-2, 4.11 ERA) hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts but he's walked nine batters over that span. Overall, he's allowed 19 free passes in his last 26 1/3 innings.
 
4/19/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay right-hander Chris Archer was roughed up by the Orioles in his last start but he gave up just one run on three hits in 6 2/3 innings Saturday against the Yankees.
Insight: Archer has tossed three quality starts in four chances this year, but he gave up seven earned runs on 12 hits over five innings in his one non-quality outing. The 25-year-old is 2-1 with a 3.65 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP in 24 2/3 innings.
 
4/3/2014 8:35:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay right-hander Chris Archer has agreed to a six-year, $25.5 million contract extension.
Insight: Archer was excellent last year in his first full year in the major leagues (9-7, 3.22 ERA in 23 starts). He went for only a dollar or two in most auction drafts and could wind up being one of the year's biggest fantasy bargains.
 
8/29/2013 10:07:00 AM
Description: Rays starter Chris Archer has thrown three straight starts of seven innings after giving up five earned runs in five innings on Aug. 13 against Seattle.
Insight: He allowed one earned runs on five hits, struck out five and walked none over seven innings Wednesday in a win over the Angels and is 8-5 with a 2.81 ERA this season. Walks were the main concern for Archer in the minors, but he has walked 2.81 batters per nine innings over 102 1/3 innings this season.
 
8/23/2013 10:24:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay righthander Chris Archer beat the Yankees for the third time on Friday.
Insight: By doing so, he became the first rookie to defeat New York three times in a season since Kevin Brown in 1989. The victory was Archer's first since July 27th. That win also came against the Yankees.
 
8/18/2013 6:37:00 PM
Description: Rays starter Chris Archer had his best outing of the month Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Archer left his start on Aug. 7 with forearm tightness and gave up five runs on nine hits over five innings on Aug. 13 against Seattle, but he fired seven innings, gave up four hits and one run, didn't walk a batter and struck out five in a no decision Sunday.
 
8/9/2013 8:47:00 PM
Description: Rays righthander Chris Archer says he's no longer feeling tightness in his forearm. SOURCE: Marc Topkin, Tampa Bay Times
Insight: He'll make his scheduled start Tuesday against Seattle. Archer left his last start early but apparently the injury was nothing serious. The 24-year-old is 2-1 with a 2.19 ERA since the All-Star break.
 
8/7/2013 10:47:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer left Wednesday's game against Arizona with right forearm tightness, the team announced.
Insight: That's bad news, as forearm tightness is often indicative of an elbow issue. Archer was both the AL Rookie of the Month and the AL Pitcher of the Month for July and had gone 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA in his last eight starts prior to Wednesday.
 
8/7/2013 10:35:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer left Wednesday's game against Arizona with an undisclosed injury.
Insight: Archer was both the AL Rookie of the Month and the AL Pitcher of the Month for July and had gone 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA in his last eight starts prior to Wednesday.
 
Hot7/27/2013 4:01:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer created a masterpiece Saturday against the Yankees, firing a two-hit shutout with zero walks and six strikeouts.
Insight: Archer has tossed two shutouts in his last three starts and is 5-0 with a 1.31 ERA over his last seven starts. It could come down to Archer and teammate Wil Myers for AL Rookie of the Year.
 
Hot7/21/2013 5:37:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer won his third straight start and fourth straight decision Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Archer struggled in his first four starts this season, going 1-3 with a 5.03 ERA and a 6.40 BB/9, but he's 4-0 with a 1.62 ERA and a 2.54 BB/9 over his last six. It looks like Tampa Bay has developed another impact pitching prospect.
 
Hot7/14/2013 6:10:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer tossed his first major league complete game Sunday against Houston.
Insight: That's a pretty nice way to finish the first half. The young phenom is 3-0 with a 1.69 ERA in his past five starts. The Rays haven't set their rotation yet for after the All-Star break so it's unknown when Archer will make his next start.
