Houston Astros manager Bo Porter today named Bud Norris the ‘Stros Opening Day starting pitcher.  The Astros open the 2013 season March 31 with a nationally televised home game against the Texas Rangers.

It will be Norris’ first career start against the Rangers and his first career Opening Day starting assignment.

Norris told MLB.com, “I’m very honored. It’s something I’ve been working for my whole career, something everyone works for their whole career. It’s a childhood dream to have an Opening Day game like that. I’m excited to go out there and give this team every opportunity to go out there and win, and very excited to do it in Houston on a nationally televised game.”

2013 will be the Astros first season in the American League West following Major League Baseball realignment.
