San Francisco Giants Name Opening Day Starter

The San Francisco Giants have announced that Logan Webb will be their starting pitcher on Opening Day against the New York Yankees.

This will be Webb's second consecutive Opening Day start, and he has been fully participating in camp since late February after recovering from a back injury towards the end of last season.

This decision was not a difficult one, as Webb had an impressive season last year, achieving a 2.90 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 163 strikeouts over 192.1 innings and 32 starts. 

Giants manager Gabe Kapler has also confirmed that Alex Cobb will follow Webb in the rotation, but the order of the remaining starting pitchers has yet to be determined.

The 26-year-old is entering his fifth major-league season, holding a 3.48 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 404 strikeouts across 434.2 innings and 80 appearances in his career.
