John Danks, LHP
0-1, 4.50 ERA

Danks' first career Opening Day start resulted in a tough-luck loss to Texas, as the southpaw allowed three runs on six hits over six innings while fanning six. Danks has a 3-3 career record at Progressive Field.


Justin Masterson, RHP
0-0, 1.13 ERA

Masterson was strong in his season debut, limiting the Blue Jays to one run on two hits over eight innings. The sinkerballer created 11 outs via ground balls, struck out 10 and walked one, but left with a no-decision for his effort.

Jaime Garcia, LHP
1-0, 3.00 ERA

After allowing two first-inning runs, Garcia settled in to blank the Brewers over the next five innings of his first start. His success was largely the result of mixing pitches, finding a better rhythm and smoothing out his delivery.


Johnny Cueto, RHP
1-0, 0.00 ERA

Cueto was stellar on Opening Day with seven shutout frames in a win vs. Miami. Picking up from 2011, Cueto had a quick tempo and kept the ball down to induce ground balls and speedy outs. He threw 95 pitches, but said he could've gone another inning.

Jon Lester, LHP
0-0, 1.29 ERA

The power lefty is coming off a strong performance on Opening Day, when he held the Tigers to one run over seven innings but took a no decision. Lester is 6-3 with a 3.33 ERA in 11 career starts in Toronto.


Ricky Romero, LHP
0-0, 7.20 ERA

Romero suffered through one bad inning during his last start against Cleveland. He allowed four runs in the second, but recovered to get through the fifth without any additional damage. Romero has a 7.12 ERA in 13 career starts against Boston.

James Shields, RHP
0-0, 10.80 ERA

Shields is coming off a five-inning performance against the Yankees that snapped his streak of 11 straight starts of seven innings or more -- the longest active streak in the Major Leagues. He is 2-0 in three career starts at Comerica Park.


Justin Verlander, RHP
0-0, 0.00 ERA

Verlander pitched eight scoreless innings on seven strikeouts Thursday, but he saw his would-be first Opening Day win spoiled by Jose Valverde's first blown save since 2010. Still, Verlander's best April outing may be a good sign for the month.

Stephen Strasburg, RHP
0-0, 1.29 ERA

Strasburg pitched seven superb innings in his first-career Opening Day start against the Cubs, allowing a run on five hits and striking out five batters. The run scored in the fourth inning, when Ian Stewart scored on a single by Marlon Byrd.


Johan Santana, LHP
0-0, 0.00 ERA

Due to a scheduling quirk, Santana will have an extra day of rest for six of his first seven starts. That should not change the fact that Santana will still be on a strict pitch count for much of April, likely no higher than 90 on Wednesday.

Yovani Gallardo, RHP
0-1, 14.73 ERA

Gallardo said he "stunk" in his season debut, a loss to the Cardinals in which he surrendered four home runs and did not pitch through the fourth inning. Gallardo is 4-1 with a 2.93 ERA in 10 career starts against the Cubs.


Ryan Dempster, RHP
0-0, 1.17 ERA

Dempster was in line for the win on Opening Day, but the bullpen blew it. He struck out 10 in the opener against the Nationals, giving up two hits over 7 2/3 innings. He is 15-5 in his career against the Brewers.

Bruce Chen, LHP
0-0, 0.00 ERA

Chen got off to an impressive start in the opener, working six shutout innings against the Angels before being pulled in a scoreless game. Chen gave up just three hits and walked none. The lefty uses different arm angles, speeds and good location.


Brandon McCarthy, RHP
0-1, 2.25 ERA

McCarthy didn't fare as well as he did in his first outing against the Mariners on Friday, struggling with command and allowing five runs (two earned) on seven hits and a pair of walks over five innings with three strikeouts on 95 pitches.

Joe Saunders, LHP
0-0, -.-- ERA

Saunders re-signed with the D-backs as a free agent after the team non-tendered him in December. In 33 starts last year, he compiled a 3.69 ERA. Saunders dominated the Padres last year, going 3-1 with a 1.47 ERA in four starts.


Cory Luebke, LHP
0-1, 9.64 ERA

Luebke struggled in his first start of the season, allowing five earned runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers. Luebke, whose fastball was up in the zone, threw 24 pitches in the first and finished having thrown 86.

Josh Johnson, RHP
0-1, 4.50 ERA

Opening Night was a battle for Johnson, who matched his career high by allowing 10 hits to the Cards. While healthy, Johnson admits that the consistent sharpness of his pitches is not quite there. It's a work in progress.


Roy Halladay, RHP
1-0, 0.00 ERA

Halladay looked like his typical dominant self in Thursday's 1-0 victory over Pittsburgh at PNC Park. He allowed just two hits and struck out five in eight scoreless innings, silencing some concerns about his rough spring.

CC Sabathia, LHP
0-0, 7.50 ERA

Sabathia struggled with his fastball command on Opening Day, allowing five runs in six innings -- four on Carlos Pena's slam. Sabathia was encouraged that he pitched better the second and third times through the lineup. He was 2-0 vs. the O's in '11.


Jake Arrieta, RHP
1-0, 0.00 ERA

The 26-year-old Arrieta is coming off seven scoreless innings vs. the Twins in an Opening Day victory Friday afternoon. Arrieta has emerged stronger since offseason right elbow surgery and he will look to continue that against the rival Yankees.

Randall Delgado, RHP
0-0, -.-- ERA

Delgado posted a 2.83 ERA while primarily using a fastball and changeup during his first seven starts last year. He has been working on gaining more confidence with a curveball that he showed more frequently in the Minors.


Wandy Rodriguez, LHP
0-0, 0.00 ERA

After a good run through the starting rotation to start the year, ace Wandy Rodriguez makes his second start in the series finale against the Braves. He didn't allow an earned run in 6 1/3 innings on Opening Day vs. Rockies.

Kevin Millwood, RHP
0-0, -.-- ERA

Millwood, 37, won a starting job with the Mariners with a strong spring (3-1, 2.57 ERA) after signing as a non-roster invitee. This will be his 16th year in the Majors and his seventh team, including Texas from 2006-09.


Colby Lewis, RHP
1-0, 3.00 ERA

Lewis held the White Sox to two runs over six innings in a 3-2 victory on Opening Day. He slider was especially sharp, and he struck out nine while walking one. He is 4-2 with a 2.45 ERA in seven starts against the Mariners over the past two years.

Jered Weaver, RHP
1-0, 0.00 ERA

Weaver pitched masterfully in his debut against the Royals on Friday, scattering just four hits, walking none and striking out 10 while looking a lot like the pitcher who finished second in Cy Young Award voting in 2011.


Carl Pavano, RHP
0-1, 5.14 ERA

Pavano is looking to bounce back after a rough start against the Orioles on Opening Day. He lasted seven innings, but gave up four runs on four hits and two walks. He's hoping for better velocity this time out, as his fastball averaged just 85 mph.

Tim Lincecum, RHP
0-1, 8.44 ERA

In 10 career starts at Coors Field, Lincecum has reached double figures in strikeouts just once -- last April 18, when he allowed one run and three hits in 7 2/3 innings as the Giants triumphed, 8-1. Colorado also was the site of Lincecum's first Major League victory on May 11, 2007.


Jeremy Guthrie, RHP
1-0, 3.86 ERA

Guthrie's veteran poise made the difference in his seven-inning winning effort against the Astros in Friday night's season opener. Guthrie gave up consecutive home runs in the fourth, but held serve. This will be his first career appearance at Coors.

Erik Bedard, LHP
0-1, 1.29 ERA

Bedard gave the Pirates everything they could have hoped for in his Opening Day assignment, but they didn't give him any offensive support. He doesn't throw as hard as he did in his Baltimore days, but is becoming the prototypical wily left-hander.


Chad Billingsley, RHP
1-0, 0.00 ERA

In his first start of the season, Billingsley responded to Don Mattingly's challenge to step up with 8 1/3 scoreless and 11 strikeouts. He is using his cutter to pitch to the right side of the plate and the slider to the left side of the plate.

People were acting like he wouldn't even be able to make routine plays at 3rd. Even if it's only 12 chances, he's made the routine plays and has even made some really good plays.

The point is, he hasn't been a liability in the field like everyone assumed he would be. If he was as god awful horrible as everyone though he was, you would be able to see it...even if it's only 12 chances plus whatever he got in spring training.

Either way, you missed the key part of my post. I said "so far".

Rodney facing the heart of the order. This could get interesting.

Very few Tiger fans like him. Most think he's garbage.

Actually I know a Tigers fan who hates him and despite his 49/49 cringes every time he takes the mound.

Valverde was 49/49 last season. I thought he was perfect!

He blew a save on opening day this season, so technically he already lost the "perfect" title. ;)

I know it was greedy, but I was hoping the Cardinals could have been 6-1

I am just happy they won both series.

With Smyly on the mound, it is unlikely unless our offense explodes.

Another great start from Strasburg. High pitch count but a solid 6 innings.

Dempster was very good tonight, yet he is still on the hook for the loss.

Pitched well last week to and got a no decision.

My Nats could be pretty good this season if they only had some offense to go along with the stud pitching.

Adding Rex Hudler to the Royals broadcast as the color guy is just awful. I somewhat enjoyed listening to Frank White, but Hudler is just unbearable.

Broxton had no control since his first pitch. I knew he was gonna blow it.

1)Error
2)Walk

I saw Brendan Ryan fail to put the ball in play in the 9th with a runner at third. That seems about right

Yea but Jaso got a hit :cool:

Love Ryan as a defensive SS but i wish he could make more contact when a runner is in scoring position 2nd time he has failed to do this with one out.

Small Sample size but he looked great as a receiver has a strong arm but his mechanic's when he goes to throw a runner out look's inaccurate i think he could catch 40 game's a season.
