On July 31, the Pirates acquired Chris Archer for prospects Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows with a player to be named from the Tampa Bay Rays. In his 2 starts with the Pirates, Archer has gone 1-0 with an ERA of 4.82. A noticeable change is a lower strike percentage, from 52.3% to 46.6%. I expect Archer to work on the pitch control of his fastball, which is being hit 30.4% of the time. Additionally, I expect that Archer will stop pitching to the top right corner of the strike-zone since is control is poor there.
