Rays | Chris Archer roughed up by Boston

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 18:33:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer allowed five runs on five hits, including a career-high three home runs, and struck out 10 in six innings in a loss to the Boston Red Sox Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Archer ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) just can't figure out the Red Sox. It was his second loss to Boston this year, and he is 1-6 with a 5.48 ERA in nine starts overall. On the flip side, he dominates almost every other opponent, so unless he is taking the mound against the Red Sox, he should make a strong option at FantasyScore.
