Chris Archer will not rejoin Team USA for the World Baseball Classic after being told that he would not pitch in the final round of the tournament.
Archer tweeted the news a few hours after Team USA defeated the Dominican Republic to secure a spot in the WBC semifinals.
According to FOX Sports, Team USA will go with Tanner Roark against Japan on Tuesday and Marcus Stroman would take the mound if they advance to the final game.
Archer was the starting pitcher in Team USA's WBC opener March 10 against Colombia, but he has not pitched since in the tournament. The right-hander returned to the Tampa Bay Rays this past week and pitched Thursday in a minor league game.
