Dropped his appeal of his 5 game suspension and will begin serving it immediately. In totally and utterly unrelated news, the Pirates have two days off this week.

After Meadows two homers tonight, one into the 500 level, I'd say pretty good. Oh, wasn't that Glasnow kid also involved in that deal and Shane Baz?

How's that trade working out for the Rays?

Chris Archer (P) PIT - Mar. 5

Archer struck out four batters in two scoreless innings Tuesday. He walked one batter and did not allow a hit.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: He pitched well and reported no ill effects from offseason hernia surgery. Archer didn't pitch particularly well for Pittsburgh following a deadline deal in 2018, but he did post a 2.70 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 36 strikeouts in 30 innings in five September starts.
