Archer, Myers ready for action after early exits

LOS ANGELES -- Chris Archer and Wil Myers, two of the Rays' brightest young stars, had to leave Wednesday night's game against the D-backs due to medical reasons. Both appeared to be fine on Friday.

Myers left Wednesday night's game for a pinch-hitter in the seventh due to symptoms of asthma. Friday night he was back in the lineup batting third and playing center field.

"I feel fine," the unassuming Myers said.

Archer started Wednesday night's game but left the game due to right forearm tightness.

"I played catch today and everything felt normal," Archer said. "Felt good, so I'm planning on making my next start.
