Chris Archer: falters in seventh inning Friday

Chris Archer allowed three runs on three hits with two walks and 10 strikeouts across six innings Friday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Archer was dominating through the first six innings, allowing zero runs and one hit, but he gave up a home run, single, and a walk in the seventh without recording an out. This was still an encouraging start for Archer, who reached 10 strikeouts for the first time this season. He is 3-6 with a 5.42 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 98 strikeouts in 84.2 innings this year. He'll take on the Cardinals on Wednesday in his next start.

Chris Archer punches out eight in no-decision

Chris Archer allowed three runs on five hits with three walks and eight strikeouts across five innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Archer's home run issues continued, as he surrendered two solo shots in this game. He also struck out at least eight batters for the third time in his last five outings. Despite the strikeouts, Archer owns a 2.3 HR/9 and 4.7 BB/9, explaining why he's 3-6 with a 5.49 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 78.2 innings this season.

Chris Archer throws four innings, leaves with hip discomfort

Chris Archer was removed from Friday's start versus the Brewers with hip discomfort.

Fantasy Impact

The Pirates are calling it a precautionary move so we'll wait and see whether or not he makes his next start. Prior to exiting Archer allowed two runs in four innings while striking out six.

Chris Archer solid against the Padres

Chris Archer allowed one run on two hits and three walks over five innings on Saturday against the Padres. He struck out five and did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

It was an encouraging start from Archer, though the three walks in five innings certainly left much to be desired. He currently sits with a 5.55 ERA and 1.48 WHIP, and has a long way to go before he approaches fantasy-relevancy. He will take on the Brewers in his next start this weekend.

Chris Archer strikes out eight in no-decision Sunday

Chris Archer allowed four runs on seven hits over five innings in the Pirates' 5-4 win over the Marlins on Sunday. He walked three and struck out eight in the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

The strikeouts were nice, but this really wasn't a good start from Archer considering the opponent. Miami is the weakest offense against right-handed pitching, so we should expect more than a simply passable outing like this. He'll carry a 5.85 ERA into his next start, Saturday vs. San Diego.
