CHRIS ARCHER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Blue Jays-Rays Preview

Chris Archer had been on cruise control with a string of strong starts before being shellacked in admittedly humbling fashion. The Tampa Bay Rays hope their young pitcher can show the same resolve he did following an equally poor performance earlier in the season.

Sox Take First Game of Series from Rays

The Red Sox came into St. Pete and had rookie Anthony Ranaudo on the mound vs. Chris Archer of the Rays.  Controversy followed Archer’s last start against the Sox when he made open criticism of Ortiz daring to flip his bat after hitting a homerun off of him.  There would be no controversy today other than Archer giving up 8 runs before the 2 inning was over, including a grand...

What Could Have Been: Chris Archer and the Chicago Cubs

When Jim Hendry traded for Matt Garza in 2011, he did so thinking that the addition of a playoff-tested arm would be what finally got the Chicago Cubs past the NLDS, perhaps even to a World Series. The Tampa Bay Rays, meanwhile, were simply doing what they did best. They were trading an ace pitcher at his maximum trade value, and building a constant flow of young talent for years...

Chris Archer: Strikeout Celebration Came In ‘Infant Stages Of My Career’

There were a lot of raised eyebrows around the baseball world when Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer called out David Ortiz for his bat flip Sunday night. Ortiz’s post-home run actions are far from universally beloved — Archer’s rotation mate, David Price, is an outspoken Papi critic — but many didn’t think the 25-year-old right-hander was one to talk regarding such matters...

Day after signing big deal with Rays, Chris Archer puts talent on display

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Chris Archer's new career began Thursday night. He had 29 starts with the Tampa Bay Rays the past two seasons, so he's not completely new, of course. But he's something different now, fresh off signing an eight-year, $43.75 million contract Wednesday that guarantees him $25.5 million the next six years. This new phase will be good -- as long as...
