The Cincinnati Reds have tabbed Scott Feldman as their starter on Opening Day against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Feldman previously started openers for the Texas Rangers (2010) and Houston Astros (2014).

He was chosen over Brandon Finnegan to start the game on April 3 at Great American Ball Park.

"It's pretty cool," Feldman said. "I know about the history of Cincinnati, being like the capital of Opening Day."
