[April 01, 2010]  PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- Jon Garland has been named the San Diego Padres' Opening Day starter by manager Bud Black.

HardwareGarland, who in January signed a one-year deal worth $4.7 million which includes a $600,000 buyout for 2011, will face Dan Haren and the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix on April 5.

Last season, Garland went a combined 11-13 with a 4.01 ERA for the Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Black also announced that Chris Young would be the Padres' starter in the season's second game, and Kevin Correia would pitch the series finale against Arizona.

Black said any of his top three pitchers would have been strong choices to start the season.
