KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Scott Feldman will start the Houston Astros’ opener on April 1 at home against the New York Yankees.

Astros manager Bo Porter made the announcement Monday. Feldman was 12-12 last season for the Chicago Cubs and Baltimore Orioles and signed a $30 million, three-year contract with the Astros during the offseason.

He has a 51-56 record in nine seasons, the first eight with the Texas Rangers.

Feldman has a 4.50 ERA in two games and six innings during spring training.

Bud Norris, Houston’s opening-day starter last year, was traded to Baltimore in July.
