Player Notes
Chris Archer pitched well in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers, allowing three runs (one earned) on four hits over seven innings.

Advice: Archer struck out eight without walking a batter. He was ultra-efficient with his pitches and finished the evening having thrown just 84 (60 strikes). Corey Seager and Justin Turner burned him for RBI singles in the third inning, with the final run on his line coming home on a monster solo homer by Yasmani Grandal in the seventh. Whether he makes another start with the Rays remains to be seen. ESPN's Jayson Stark reported earlier in July that a rival executive sees a 70% chance that Archer is traded to the Dodgers prior to the deadline. He has pitched to a 4.42 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 155/51 K/BB ratio over the course of 130 1/3 innings.

A rival executive told ESPN's Jayson Stark that be believes there is a "70 percent" chance Chris Archer winds up with the Dodgers before the August 1 trade deadline.

Advice: Stark describes this executive as somebody from a "team that's been talking to the Rays." Archer has had a disappointing 2016 season overall, but he struck out 11 batters in a win Wednesday at Coors Field and he was among the best pitchers in baseball in 2015. The 27-year-old right-hander is on a team-friendly contract that could potentially run through 2021. The asking price will be high, but the Dodgers have the kind of loaded farm system necessary to pull this off.

Chris Archer was marvelous in Wednesday's 11-3 win over the Rockies, striking out 11 batters while allowing two runs over six innings.

Advice: Archer scattered four hits over his six innings of work. Both runs on his line scored in the bottom of the second inning. With this strong outing in the books, he will carry a 4.60 ERA and 1.39 WHIP into a home date with the Dodgers next time out. Archer is a prime candidate for a second-half rebound, though whether that comes with the Rays or another club is a whole other story.
