Chris Archer (SP, TB) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Chris Lacey - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Archer is pitching well with a 2.95 ERA and six wins on the season. He has struck out 62 batters, while walking 30. He is limiting teams to a .214 average, with right-handers just managing a .153 average against him. He has struggled a bit in his last 12 innings with an ERA of 4.50 and giving up three HR and he gets the resurgent Yankees next which could cause a hiccup. He can be a valuable contributor at the back end of a playoff rotation with the right matchups– look for right-handed heavy lineups and you will do well with Archer.
