Rays RHP Chris Archer vocal about his team's need to make trades

BY foxsports • July 31, 2015

The Toronto Blue Jays made a few splashes in the trade market this week, acquiring both Troy Tulowitzki and David Price.

Tampa Bay Rays starter Chris Archer wants in on that action.

"I'm speaking for our clubhouse when I say this, WE are hoping and confident that the areas of need will be addressed in the coming hours so that we can stay competitive not just in September but through the month of October as well," Archer told the Tampa Bay Times.

"Other teams have, and I hope that motivates not only the players to give it all they have but the management as well.''

He also took to Twitter to provide a reaction to the division rival's moves:

There is still time for the Rays to make a move, but only hours remain until the deadline.
