Rays' Chris Archer posts excellent start against Yankees on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/3/15) Rays right-hander Chris Archer was terrific against the Yankees on Friday. Archer kept the Yankees scoreless over 6 2/3 innings, but he was left with a no-decision as the bullpen blew a 3-0 lead. The Yankees would go on to win 7-5 in extra innings.
Archer, who lowered his ERA to a fine 2.18, allowed three hits and three walks while striking out eight. He threw a career-high 122 pitches on the evening, but was generally in command for the most part.
This was a solid bounceback effort for Archer, who, despite recording 10 strikeouts, allowed five earned runs in his last start.
Rays SP Chris Archer gets rocked, loses fifth game of season
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/28/15) Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer dropped his first start since May 7 on Sunday against the Red Sox.
Archer got through six innings, but allowed five earned runs on five hits. Though he did manage to strike out 10 batters, he allowed the most runs during a start over his last nine appearances.
Archers ERA ballooned to 2.31 with the sub-par outing. He has 133 strikeouts and 25 walks over 109 innings of work this season.
Rays P Chris Archer goes eight innings in win over Blue Jays
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/15) Rays pitcher Chris Archer gave up two runs — one earned — in a solid performance in Tuesday night's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.
"He continues to go out and impress," manager Kevin Cash said, per MLB.com. "Especially against that lineup, that's an extremely difficult lineup to have that many at-bats against. They just pick up on your mistakes. Doesn't matter how good your stuff is. They're going to get you eventually. Arch just kept pumping fastballs and sliders, and they just couldn't quite time him up."
Archer went eight innings, gave up three hits, one walk and struck out seven batters. Archer was in command for the majority of his time in the game. Over his past eight starts, Archer has posted a 1.66 ERA.
"He had done his job," Cash said. "He could have gone more, but we've tried to stay fairly consistent. We're going to turn it over to the guys in the bullpen. Arch had done more than enough in that outing."
For the season, Archer is now 9-4 with a 2.10 ERA.
His next start is projected for Sunday against the Red Sox.
Rays SP Chris Archer hangs on for eighth win of season
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(6/18/15) It wasn't the sharpest performance of the season for Rays ace Chris Archer, but he did just enough to pick up his eighth win of the season Thursday in Tampa's triumph over the Nationals.
Archer lasted just five innings, allowing eight hits and three runs, but got off the hook and earned a win when the Rays rallied in the sixth inning.
Archer struck out three and walked two over the course of his 89-pitch effort to improve to 8-4 on the season and lower his ERA to 2.18. He has now won five straight decisions and has not lost since May 7.
|2014 summary: In his first full season in the Rays' rotation, Chris Archer suddenly became the staff workhorse. Of course, that honor belonged to David Price, but with him getting dealt to the Tigers in July, it was Archer who led the Rays in innings pitched, and by a good margin. In his 194 2/3 innings, Archer walked a few too many batters -- 72, to be exact -- but he struck out 173. While wildness left Archer with an unimpressive 1.28 WHIP, he was able to hold his ERA at 3.33 because he gave up few extra-base hits. Opponents slugged just .336 against the hard-throwing righty.|
Playing time status: Archer will assume a position near the top of the Rays' rotation and could give his owners close to 200 innings.
2015 outlook: Archer had stretches where he appeared to be dominant last season, but until he can tame his wild side, he will probably not find much consistency. The 26-year-old qualifies as a breakout candidate, but until he proves himself as a reliable must-start option, he is best saved for the middle-to-late rounds in standard mixed leagues.
