- When Jake Odorizzi was sent back down to Triple-A Durham, Archer got the call to start for the Rays on Saturday against the Indians. He was knocked around quite a bit, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts over four innings. The Indians have a potent offense this season, so it's not surprising to see Archer struggle in his season debut. He figures to make at least one more start in place of David Price, who is on the DL, and could stick in the rotation if he performs much better against the Orioles this coming week. As far as his stuff goes, he's got an electric fastball and a devastating slider, but his change-up is still a work in progress. He profiles as someone who can be number two starter down the line. Grab him in deeper mixed leagues and certainly in AL only formats.
