GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) The Cincinnati Reds chose newcomer Scott Feldman to start on opening day against the Philadelphia Phillies.
It'll be the third opening day start for the 33-year-old Feldman. The right-hander also opened seasons for Texas in 2010 and Houston in 2014.
Injuries have depleted the Reds' rotation for the second straight spring training. Homer Bailey had surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow and is expected to miss the first two months of the season. Anthony DeSclafani, who was in line to start the opener, will go on the disabled list with a sore pitching elbow.
