Prove your baseball mettle: Do you remember if this pitcher actually started on Opening Day?

Starting on Opening Day is no small feat for a pitcher. It's a status symbol -- a sign that this pitcher is going to be the dude for this team this year. That's why Opening Day provides so many fantastic pitching matchups. Stroman vs. Archer? Price vs. Kluber? Felix vs. Hamels? Sign us up.

But not every team has an obvious choice to start every single year, so the Opening Day slate often also includes some less memorable names. Let's see if you can remember which of the pitchers below actually toed the rubber on Opening Day within the last five years.
