Tampa Bay Rays starter Chris Archer is drawing significant trade interest ahead of the MLB trade deadline, according to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.

Archer, 29, is in the middle of the worst season of his career since he became a full-time starter in 2013. He currently has a 4.29 ERA in 15 starts, and he missed most of the month of June with an abdominal strain. It’s unclear at the moment which teams are showing interest.

In two starts since returning from that injury, Archer failed to complete five innings and gave up four earned runs. Rosenthal suggested that teams will be looking at how Archer performs in his final two starts before the July 31 deadline before deciding what they would offer the Rays in return.
