RotoWire News: Archer, who'll pitch for Team USA in the first round of the World Baseball Classic, states that his spring training regimen won't be affected by his participation, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. "I've known I was going to play for six months now. When I initially got asked, I said, 'I'm going to play, but we're going to have to make it work.' Just because the pitch count is 65, I don't have to throw 65 pitches." (2/16/2017)
