South alum Archer signs with Brewers

Former Sullivan South pitcher Tristan Archer has officially signed with Milwaukee and been added to the Helena (Mont.) Brewers roster.

The Brewers selected Archer on June 8 in the 21st round of the Major League Baseball first-year amateur player draft, sending him to the Single-A Pioneer League. 

After graduating from South, the 6-foot-3, 165-pound right-handed pitcher played four seasons for Tennessee Tech. He tallied 23 wins, going 9-4 this past season. He was an All-Ohio Valley Conference first-team selection his senior season in Cookeville.

Helena opens the Pioneer League season on Thursday with a road game against the defending league champion Missoula Osprey.
