Chris Archer allows one run versus Athletics on Monday

Chris Archer tossed four innings on Monday allowing one run on two hits to the A's. He did not factor in the decision of the 3-1 win while allowing a pair of walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Through seven starts this season, Archer still hasn't pitched long enough to qualify for a win maxing out at 4 1/3 innings pitched. His overall numbers are decent with a 4.10 ERA and 1.405 WHIP but if he can't stretch out to more than five innings it is tough to use him in fantasy leagues when he can never qualify for a win or quality start.

Chris Archer allows one run in four innings Saturday

Chris Archer gave up one run on two hits and three walks while striking out four in four innings of Saturday's 9-1 win over the Rays.

Fantasy Impact

Archer turned in a solid start on Saturday despite struggling with his command, tallying three walks and throwing 79 pitches in four innings. The righthander has been good so far this season for the Twins, but he has yet to pitch more than 4 1/3 innings in a start, which greatly hinders his fantasy production and potential.

Chris Archer doesn't factor into final decision vs. White Sox

Twins starter Chris Archer allowed two runs, three hits, and three walks over three innings of work against the White Sox on Sunday. He struck out two batters and didn't factor into the final decision. Minnesota ultimately defeated Chicago by a score of 6-4 in extra innings.

Fantasy Impact

Archer owns a 3.18 ERA after allowing four runs through 11 1/3 innings this season. He owns a 1.32 WHIP, .209 OBA, 7.94 K/9, and 4.76 BB/9. The veteran right-hander doesn't warrant much fantasy consideration at the moment.

Chris Archer surrenders two runs vs. Royals

Twins starter Chris Archer allowed two runs over 4 1/3 innings of work against the Royals on Tuesday. He gave up four hits and three walks while striking out five batters. The veteran right-hander earned the no-decision as Minnesota fell to Kansas City by a score of 4-3.

Fantasy Impact

Archer has now allowed two earned runs through two starts (8 1/3 innings) this season. The 33-year-old owns a 1.08 WHIP and .194 OBA.

Chris Archer throws four scoreless innings

Twins pitcher Chris Archer surrendered zero runs, zero walks, and just two hits during an impressive outing against the Dodgers on Tuesday. He also struck out three batters. The 33-year-old was replaced after just four innings and ultimately finished with the no-decision. Minnesota ended up falling to Los Angeles by a score of 7-2.

Fantasy Impact

This was Archer's first start of 2022. While pitching for the Rays last season, he amassed a 4.66 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. However, the right-hander pitched in just six games (five starts) due to hip and forearm injuries. He's worth monitoring in fantasy leagues but should be left on waivers for the time being.
