Chris Archer

Archer has been outstanding so far in 2015. His first 10 starts have been extremely impressive and he currently sports a 2.40 ERA (2.77 xFIP) in 60 innings with a 10.50 K/9 rate a 3.00 BB/9 rate. He has currently pitched like the ace the Rays desperately needed this season and is under team control through the 2021 season. Archer will look to continue to be one of the Rays’ best starters and a mainstay in the rotation for years to come.
