Archer placed on 60-day injured listJune 30, 2020 | 12:00 AM
Pirates placed RHP Chris Archer on the 60-day injured list, retroactive to June 28, due to neck surgery.
Analysis: Archer underwent surgery for neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome earlier this month and won't pitch this year. He could be ready to go for the start of 2021, though the track record for this sort of procedure isn't particularly promising. His contract includes an $11 million club option (or $250,000 buyout) for 2021, so odds are he's already thrown his final pitch for the Pirates. Needless to say, this didn't go according to plan for anyone involved.
