Pirates' Archer aims for another strong start vs. Twins

Chris Archer will be working on a full week of rest when he takes the mound Wednesday night as the Pittsburgh Pirates wrap up a two-game interleague series with the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.

Archer, still settling in with his new team after being dealt by Tampa Bay ahead of the trade deadline, used the extended time off to work on his two-seam fastball. He is also incorporating a curveball into an arsenal that already includes a four-seamer clocking in at almost 95 mph this season as well as a solid changeup and a devastating slider.

"I'm using a full arsenal now instead of limiting myself to two, occasionally three," Archer told MLB.com.
