The Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to a one-year deal with pitcher Chris Archer.

Fantasy Impact

Archer struggled last year with the Pirates, finishing with a 5.19 ERA and 3-9 record. However his K/9 was still above 10 and now he returns to the organization where he experienced most of his success. Archer paired with Tyler Glasnow makes a strong duo in the Rays pitching staff.
