Chris Archer is apparently going to be working on some stuff. He's not going to be looking for results, necessarily, but rather tweaking things and possibly toying with his repertoire like more veteran pitchers during Spring Training. If Archer did want to explore something new, I'd like to see more of this absurd cluster of "fastballs" on the bottom right here:

Those pitches have fastball velocity and slider movement. I don't know what they are, but I'd like to see him harness them for cruel purposes.

There's no broadcast, radio or TV, for this game today.

Update: Archer k's Ortiz in Top 1:
