Rays land Glasnow, Meadows in Archer deal

MLB.com

The Rays officially traded right-hander Chris Archer to the Pirates before Tuesday's non-waiver Trade Deadline, acquiring a talent-rich package that includes outfielder Austin Meadows, right-hander Tyler Glasnow and a player to be named.

Archer was one of few frontline starters available on the market at this Trade Deadline, and he shouldn't merely be a rental -- he is controllable through 2021, with team-friendly options of $9 million for 2020 and $11 million for 2021.
