MLB…Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers host Paul Goldschmidt and the St. Louis Cardinals on opening day. Miles Mikolas pitches for St. Louis and Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball for Milwaukee in a matchup of NL Central teams with postseason aspirations. Goldschmidt is making his Cardinals debut after he was acquired in an offseason trade with Arizona.
Jon Lester makes his third consecutive opening day start for Chicago. Yu Darvish and Cole Hamels will follow Lester in the Cubs rotation. Darvish or Hamels started the past three Rangers openers. Mike Minor will get his first career opening day start for Texas.
The consensus among prognosticators is that the Chicago White Sox or Kansas City Royals will finish in the bottom of the AL Central, and whichever team avoids the cellar won’t fare a whole lot better. Well, one of them will start the season with a win. The White Sox visit the Royals for opening day. Carlos Rodon faces Brad Keller
