The Orioles don't have same caliber top-line ace as their AL East competition, but they have depth in the organization and aren't afraid to use it.
Right-hander Jason Hammel (above) emerged as the ace when healthy last season and will start the opener in Tampa. He'll be followed in the rotation by LHP Wei-Yin Chen, RHP Miguel Gonzalez, RHP Jake Arrieta and RHP Chris Tillman.
