Reds name Scott Feldman starter for Opening Day

The Cincinnati Reds have named Scott Feldman their starting pitcher for their opener on April 3 against the Philadelphia Phillies.

He will be opposed by right-hander Jeremy Hellickson, who was named the Phillies' Opening Day starter on Sunday.

It will be Feldman's third career Opening Day start. He also started openers for the Texas Rangers (2010) and Houston Astros (2014).

The veteran right-hander signed a one-year deal with the Reds in the offseason.

Feldman has pitched for the Rangers, Cubs, Orioles, Astros and Blue Jays.
