Not soon after the Rays revealed there would be a baseball-related announcement Wednesday, word came that it would be to lock up one of the team's young stars.
Chris Archer will reportedly get a six-yea contract extension. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal said it would be for $25 million.
Here's what Rosenthal posted Wednesday morning:
