The Tampa Bay Rays have announced that Alex Cobb will start on Opening Day against the Baltimore Orioles on April 6.
Cobb was 10-9 with a 2.87 ERA in 27 starts last season. He became Tampa Bay's No. 1 starter when David Price was traded to the Detroit Tigers last July.
Chris Archer and Drew Smyly will follow him in the series against the Orioles, while Jake Odorizzi will start Tampa Bay's road opener at the Miami Marlins on April 10.
