    OPENING DAY: New York Yankees (0-0) @ Houston Astros (0-0) [4/1-4/3]




























    Tuesday, April 1 at Minute Maid Park | 7:10 PM ET

    CC Sabathia, LHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA)




    Scott Feldman, RHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA)



    Scouting Report:

    YANKEES: Sabathia has made 10 previous Opening Day starts and five straight with the Yanks (2009-13). He is one of six pitchers in team history to make at least five Opening Day starts, and the first since Ron Guidry, who made seven (1978-80, '82-'84, '86).

    ASTROS: Signed to a three-year, $30 million deal to anchor the rotation, Feldman makes his second career Opening Day start in his Astros debut. He started for the Rangers on Opening Day in 2010 after a breakout '09.




    Wednesday, April 2 at Minute Maid Park | 8:10 PM ET

    Hiroki Kuroda, RHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA)




    Jarred Cosart, RHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA)



    Scouting Report:

    YANKEES: Kuroda has made at least 30 starts and tossed at least 180 innings in five of his six Major League seasons. Among all Japan-born pitchers with at least 450 innings in the Majors, Kuroda owns the lowest all-time career ERA at 3.40.

    ASTROS: Cosart begins the season on the Major League roster for the first time after going 1-1 with a 1.95 ERA in 10 starts with the Astros in the second half of last season. He had more walks than strikeouts, so command will be a key.




    Thursday, April 3 at Minute Maid Park | 8:10 PM ET

    Ivan Nova, RHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA)




    Brett Oberholtzer, LHP (0-0, 0.00 ERA)



    Scouting Report:

    YANKEES: Nova's .673 career winning percentage as a starter is the third-highest for any big league pitcher with at least 50 starts, trailing only Kris Medlen and Lance Lynn. His 0.56 homers/nine innings ratio in 2013 was the second-lowest among AL starters.

    ASTROS: Lefty landed in the Major Leagues last season and made 13 appearances, and was especially tough as a starter, going 4-5 with a 2.24 ERA in 10 starts. He showed great control by allowing only 1.82 walks per nine innings.

    The Yankees will sweep, they have to win as many games as possible against weak opponents(the division is that tough).

    Either way can't wait for game 1.

    Good job on the IGT YC btw. Maybe I'll start a few of them if I have time.

    @FeinsandNYDN:

    Solarte won the job for his performance. I hope Nuņez understands that and tries to bounce back from AAA.

    I really don't think at this put Nunez will ever bounce back, he was never there in the first place, I had a lot of hope for him, but it just didn't work out.

    I was looking at Nunez on wiki and it said a few years back, he won "best defensive prospect" and "best arm" in the Yankees system according to Baseball America... whoops...

    I really really really hope Jeter is at least decent, if not we have a huge problem(he is hitting behind our 2nd best player and ahead of our best player).

    Solarte came job hunting. Hunted, preyed and conquered. That kid is hungry.
