Tampa Bay Rays' Jake Odorizzi delivers a pitch during the first inning of a baseball game against the New York Yankees in New York. The Twins have acquired Odorizzi from the Rays for minor league infielder J

The Rays enter 2018 with a streak of 560 consecutive games started by pitchers under 30, the longest such stretch in the majors.

Archer, 10-12 with a 4.07 ERA a year ago when he worked at least 200 innings for the third consecutive season, is excited about the possibilities. He wasn't considered an elite prospect along the likes of Royce Lewis, the first overall pick in last year's draft, or Nick Gordon, who played well at Class AA Chattanooga last season, or even Wander Javier, who signed for $4 million in 2016. He also headed to the Kansas City Royals as part of the package for Zack Greinke in 2010 and was dealt to the Rays in 2012 as part of the haul for Wade Davis and James Shields.

The 21-year-old Palacios has a.290 career average over four minor league seasons.

Finally, Willis Investment Counsel raised its stake in International Business Machines Corporation by 1.9% in the fourth quarter. The technology company reported $5.18 EPS for the quarter, beating the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $5.17 by $0.01.

Right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who turns 28 just before Opening Day, will make the short drive from Port Charlotte, Florida, to Fort Myers to join his new team.

Michael Pineda moved to 60-Day Disabled List to make room on the 40-man roster to make room for Odorizzi.

"I say this every year, because we always have a special organization when it comes to arms, but I'm willing to put it up against everybody in the league", Archer added.
