Archer Update

93

A quick search suggested there haven't been any stories/posts/shots about how Chris Archer is doing since shortly after the season began. I thought an update might be in order, particularly in light of all the Hendry controversy. While you might say that 15 AA starts and 77 innings is his hardly enough time to measure his ongoing value, its already two more starts and 7 more innings than he had at AA last year in which to acquire the reputation of a stud prospect. So far this year? Not so great for Archer. 15 starts have yielded a 3-3 record, an ERA of 4.98 and a WHIP of 1.648. It would be way too early to say he's a bust, but people who long ago condemned this trade should at least own up to the possibility that Hendry shrewdly traded him when his value was at its highest. At the very least, if he'd remained in our system with these numbers this year, he'd be a lot less valuable as a trade chip than he was this past offseason.
