Events conspired against Chris Archer for today's Ranking the Rays. Only two Tampa Bay minor league teams played and there's a longstanding three-team minimum.
Archer gave up just an unearned run on three hits in six innings in Durham's win Sunday over Empire State. Montgomery's David Wendt would have been a likely high pick as well.
