If the Chicago Cubs fail to add another arm to the rotation, it’s not in that bad of shape. With a top three of Jon Lester, Jose Quintana and Kyle Hendricks, the Cubs can hang with anyone. But which of those three is the ace of the staff?

Let’s just assume that the Chicago Cubs won’t be adding anyone else to the rotation. They very well could, but that will give us a chance to write about something else don the road. But for now, the Cubs pitching staff with a solid top three, a strong fourth, and a mystery at the five-spot. So who is the undisputed ace of the team?

I’ll be taking a look at the three biggest arms in the Cubs’ rotation. Jon Lester, Jose Quintana and Kyle Hendricks all seem to have something special about them. Tyler Chatwood might be the darkhorse of the group, but we’ll assume he’ll remain just that. So let’s delve into the other three and see who stands a little taller.
