SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Cobb has been picked by new Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde to start the Orioles’ opener on March 28 at the New York Yankees.

Cobb was 5-15 with a 4.90 ERA last year in his first season with the Orioles after signing a $57 million, four-year contract on March 21.

The 31-year-old right-hander spent six seasons with Tampa Bay and is 53-50 with a 3.75 ERA.

Right-hander Masahiro Tanaka is scheduled to start for the Yankees.

Hyde said Tuesday that “I’ve respected Alex for a long time. We all respect him very much for what he’s done in his career.”
