What is Ace?

Identified as the best pitcher on the team, the ace will almost always be the first pitcher in the team's starting rotation and will usually be assigned to pitch on Opening Day.

Sporting Charts explains Ace

Staff aces are the cornerstones of many baseball franchises.

The trade shook the foundation of the organization, since many thought the two-time Cy Young award winner would continue to dominate on the mound north of the border and retire as a Toronto Blue Jay.
