Ranking Every MLB Team’s Ace in 2021

28. Kyle Gibson — Texas Rangers

The Rangers’ pitching staff leaves a lot to be desired. Corey Kluber was brought in last year to be the ace and he made just one start before being shut down with an injury — he is now with the Yankees. Lance Lynn was stellar for the club a season ago, and now he is a member of the White Sox.

Kyle Gibson fills in as the de facto ace — a true sign of the Rangers’ lack of hope in 2021. Gibson has a career 4.58 ERA and is coming off a season in which he went 2-5 with an ERA north of 5.00. Gibson is a decent pitcher, but would be closer to a No. 3 option on most clubs.
