Rangers' Feldman will start on Opening Day

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - The Texas Rangers have selected Scott Feldman as their opening day starter, completing the right-hander's ascent from extra arm to staff ace.

The team made the announcement Saturday, a year after he started the season in the bullpen. He went on to join the rotation and lead the team in wins.

The 27-year-old was 17-8 with a 4.08 ERA in 31 starts and 34 overall appearances last season.

Feldman will be joined in the rotation by Rich Harden, Colby Lewis, Matt Harrison and one-time closer C.J. Wilson.

The Rangers optioned lefty Derek Holland and right-hander Brandon McCarthy to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
