News: Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced Wednesday that Feldman will start the second game of the season against the Indians on April 8, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: "Feldman's lined up to pitch right behind [Dallas] Keuchel, which is good," Hinch said. "I caution lining it too perfectly too early just because a lot of things can happen, but Keuchel one, Feldman two is a good lineup." The veteran right-hander has a 7.20 ERA through five spring innings thus far.

News: Feldman will throw a minor league game Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Impact: The rest of the team is off Wednesday, but it looks as though Feldman will get some extra work in with the minor league club. He's a candidate to start Opening Day after posting a 3.74 ERA in 29 starts last season.

News: Feldman allowed one run on two hits and a walk with two strikeouts over two innings Sunday in his 2015 Grapefruit League debut against the Braves.
Impact: Feldman started Opening Day for the Astros last season and went 8-12 with 3.74 ERA in 29 starts for the team. When asked about starting Opening Day again, the veteran right-hander said, "I think the thing that matters to me is starting a game in the postseason. I think that would be awesome, but as far as Opening Day, I think we've got a bunch of guys that had good years last year and that's really just in the hands of A.J. (Hinch) and the staff." Feldman is scheduled to make his next spring appearance Friday against the Nationals.
