Cobb named Tampa Bay Rays opening day starter

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Rays have selected right-hander Alex Cobb as their opening day starting pitcher.

Manager Kevin Cash made the announcement Wednesday. Cobb was 10-9 with 2.87 ERA in 27 starts last season and ascended to the top of Tampa Bay's rotation when David Price was traded last summer.

Price was the opening day starter three of the past four years.
