Chris Archer – Another potential pitcher the Angels could target is Chris Archer. Archer is still under contract through 2021 and though he was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates at the trade deadline. Archer did not pitch very well down the stretch so he may be able to be had for less then it would have been before.
Archer has had a rough last couple of seasons going 25-39 over past three seasons with a 4.25 ERA. However prior to that Archer was 31-29 with a 3.27 ERA. He has great stuff and maybe on the right team he could flourish. Plus Archer is only 30 years old and with that said he still has a lot left in the tank.
