Chris Tillman: Good Pitcher, Not an Ace

The question of whether Chris Tillman is an ace is not a new subject.  However, previous attempts at analyzing his “ace-hood” have focused on his FIP and WAR (Fangraphs version).  Since those statistics rely on aspects of pitching that he doesn’t excel at (strikeouts, walks, and home runs), it’s not really surprising that he’s fallen short of ace status.  While Tillman’s FIP has never been that impressive, he has done a good job at preventing runs.  With that in mind, today I take a look at whether Tillman can be considered an ace based on his run prevention over at ESPN Sweetspot Network Orioles blog Camden Depot.
