Archer believes Rays could have best rotation in majors

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) Chris Archer believes Tampa Bay is capable of having the best rotation in the major leagues.

"We have some very dynamic arms in this room," the two-time AL All-Star said after reporting to spring training, where a bevy of young starters and prospects are competing for roles on a staff that will have a different look after losing Alex Cobb to free agency.

"I say this every year, because we always have a special organization when it comes to arms, but I'm willing to put it up against everybody in the league," Archer added. "And in order for us to back it up, we have to produce. I think everybody in here is capable of doing that."
