Marlins' Nolasco to start Opening Day

The SportsXchange

Miami Marlins pitcher Ricky Nolasco was named the team's Opening Day starter on Thursday.

Nolasco, 30, struck out six Mets in 3 2/3 innings and has allowed just one unearned run in 5 2/3 innings this spring. He's one of the remaining members of the rotation after Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle were traded to the Toronto Blue Jays over the winter.

The Marlins are scheduled to open the season on the road April 1 against the Washington Nationals.

The righty posted a 12-13 record and a 4.48 ERA last season in 31 starts.
