After being named the Texas Rangers Opening Day (or night, actually) starter last week, Matt Harrison said it was an honor he was looking forward to getting.
On Tuesday, he'll make his final start of the spring as the Rangers play their final game at Surprise Stadium as they match up with the Chicago White Sox as Cactus League play winds down.
Harrison is set to start for the Rangers on Sunday night in the nationally televised season opener against the Houston Astros and will use today's start as one final tuneup. He's scheduled to work four innings or 65 pitches.
Through three starts this spring, the 27-year-old lefty is 1-0 with a 4.00 ERA, allowing 10 hits and no walks in nine innings of work with four strikeouts. Despite not putting up eye-popping numbers this spring, Harrison should be all set to go come Sunday night.
