Archer, Odorizzi and Torres Optioned to Triple-A Durham

Looks like the competition for the Rays’ No. 5 starter is now down to Jeff Niemann and Roberto Hernandez as Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Alex Torres were all optioned to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday.

Archer pitched particularly well this spring, but took the news in stride, noting that the things told to him by the Rays brass were encouraging and that he can now get stretched out for the season.
