SP - PIT - IL60
Expert NoteView More Notes
Archer's season was an unmitigated disaster before he was mercifully put on the season ending IL with a shoulder injury. His 5.19 ERA and 1.41 WHIP were entirely earned, as he walked more than four batters per nine innings for the first time in his career. But it is worth noting that Archer made some major gains in the second half, including improving on his FIP by more than 2.5 runs and his ERA by nearly a run. With still plenty of strikeout potential, Archer makes a low-cost, potentially high-reward option for the back of your staff.

The Pirates have placed RHP Chris Archer on the 60-day IL.
Archer will miss the 2020 season after undergoing surgery to relieve symptoms of neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome in early June. Look for Chad Kuhl and Steven Brault to compete for a spot in the rotation. Archer has an $11 million club option for 2021, which also includes a buyout. The 31-year-old will rehab and look to get back on track for the 2021 campaign.
