Chris Archer (neck, shoulder) underwent surgery Tuesday to "relieve symptoms of neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome."

If there is a season in 2020, Archer will not pitch. The hope is that he will be fully recovered by next spring, but this is the type of surgery that often comes with lingering issues and sometimes significant setbacks. The thoracic outlet trouble might help explain the quick fall from grace for Archer, who struggled to a career-worst 5.19 ERA over 119 2/3 innings (23 starts) last season for the Pirates and owns a combined 4.92 ERA in 172 innings since leaving Tampa Bay in mid-2018. He carries an $11 million club option (or $250,000 buyout) for 2021.

U.S. District Court judge Jed S. Rakoff ruled Friday that a letter from MLB to the Yankees concerning a 2017 investigation be unsealed.

The ruling was part of a $5 million class action case brought against MLB, the Astros, and the Red Sox by DraftKings players. It was already publicly known that the Yankees were fined as a result of that 2017 investigation, but it was believed to be for the improper use of a dugout phone. However, the plaintiffs in this case allege that MLB's investigation actually found a "more serious, sign-stealing scheme" and that the letter from MLB to the Yankees showed commissioner Rob Manfred's "duplicity." Both MLB and the Yankees are trying to keep the letter sealed from public view, with New York arguing that it's disclosure would result in "significant" damage to the team's reputation. Judge Rakoff wrote that the Yankees and MLB have until Monday at noon ET to submit a "minimally redacted" letter to protect the "privacy interests" of the people mentioned. Stay tuned.
