Bargain Bin - Chris Archer, Alex Colome (SP, Rays)

Bargain Bin - Cheap Prospects with Upside


Highlighting lower priced bowman chrome autos of prospects who seem to be better than their pricing dictates...

CHRIS ARCHER / ALEX COLOME
Card: 2011 Bowman Chrome Autographs
Cost: < $10
Why: I've always loved these underrated TB Rays strikeout machines.  I placed a Strong Buy recommendation on Colome last year on 8/3/2012, and last night's debut for Colome made me look good.  Archer was called up to make his 2013 MLB debut today at Cleveland, after an impressive 36 K in 29.1 IP last year for the Rays big league club.  As long as their base autos remain in the single digits, I'd buy.  The Rays rotation is crowded so don't be discouraged if either or both get sent back down eventually.  Their stuff is legit and they can be massive trade chips as well.  From my experience, almost all trades result in spikes immediately thereafter as the new team's fans want a piece of their new prized prospect.
