Spotlight shines on Archer as Rays visit Pirates

PITTSBURGH -- Even if the performance doesn't always match the big-arm expectations, Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Chris Archer remains a valuable piece of a team in playoff contention. He also seems to be a desired commodity.

Archer, scheduled to start against right-hander Jameson Taillon and the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday at PNC Park, has surfaced as a trade target for the second straight season.

The Braves reportedly are interested, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. And other clubs are sure to line up.
