Fantasy Baseball 2012 – Opening Day Starters

BOSTON - JANUARY 08:  A giant flag covers the ...

The 2012 MLB season opens with an overseas series between the Seattle Mariners and Oakland A’s on March 28th.

There is a one game series scheduled between the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins to open the new stadium in Miami on April 4th.

If you aren’t a fan of the Mariners, A’s, Cardinals, or Marlins your team’s opening day will either be April 5th or 6th.

In many instances, the starters haven’t been announced yet, I will put (expected) if the opening day starter hasn’t been decided by the manager. I will update this page as soon as the opening day starter has been announced for each team.
