  • Rays Trade Chris Archer To Pirates

    Pirates show they're all-in with trade for Rays pitcher Chris Archer

    The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired starting pitcher Chris Archer from Tampa Bay that cost the team top prospects in outfielder Austin Meadows and pitcher Tyler Glasnow.

    Archer, a two-time All-Star, is 3-5 with a 4.31 ERA in 17 starts this season for the Rays.

    Pittsburgh will assume the remaining $2,049,731 in Archer's $6.25 million salary. He receives a $500,000 assignment bonus for the trade. His deal includes a $7.5 million salary for 2019, a $9 million team option for 2020 with a $1.75 million buyout and an $11 million club option for 2021 with a $250,000 buyout.

    Meadows, a first-round pick in the 2013 draft, hit .292 with five home runs and 13 RBIs in 49 games for the Pirates after making his major league debut on May 17.

    The 24-year-old Glasnow dominated as a starter in the minors but struggled during his first season-plus in Pittsburgh, going 2-7 with a 7.69 ERA in 15 games (13 starts) in 2017. The Pirates moved Glasnow to the bullpen this season with better results. The 6-foot-8 right-hander is 1-2 with a 4.34 ERA in 34 appearances.
