Over the next couple of weeks, I will be putting out a series of articles ranking the MLB teams by each position. I will divide the articles by league, separating the AL and NL. What better place to start than with each team's "ace"?
These are the guys that each respective team relies upon to stop a losing streak or to toss a gem when it matters most. For teams with two ace quality pitchers (i.e. Phillies), I'm using the pitcher listed as the No. 1 pitcher on each team's depth chart.
Note: The statistical projections that are listed are not personal projections, they are courtesy of MLB.com.
