Fantasy Impact:

After going on the injured list on August 21 with shoulder inflammation, Archer was cleared to begin a throwing program less than two weeks later. However, the team decided that Archer likely wouldn't be able to build up to a starter's workload in time for a 2019 return. He had a disappointing 2019, posting a 5.19 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 143:55 K:BB across 119.2 innings.
