Archer wins AL rookie/pitcher July awards

Former Biscuit Chris Archer won the American League's rookie of the month and pitcher of the month awards today for his July.

Archer was 4-0 with an 0.73 ERA and two shutouts for the Rays in July. He finished with 17 hits allowed, seven walks and 22 strikeouts in 37 innings.

He's just the sixth player to win both the rookie and player/pitcher awards in the same month. The list includes former Biscuit Jeremy Hellickson in May 2011.
