Chris Archer shut down for rest of season

Chris Archer (shoulder) has been shut down for the remainder of the season.

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.
