Rays manager Kevin Cash this morning made official what has seemed obvious, that Chris Archer will be their opening day starter vs. Toronto on April 3.

This will be the second opening day start for Archer, who went on to make the AL All-Star team last year.

"We've all probably assumed that … but it's quite an honor," Cash said. "Arch really solidified himself last year."
