How come Rivera was never a SP?

The reason Mo isn't a starter is because the Yankees had a full rotation in '96 and didn't know what to do Mo. They stuck him in the pen and well he was dominant (striking out 130 in 108) and the rest is history. Mo only started 10 games in '95 and average 6 2/3 innings per game. Maybe he didn't have the stamina or the pitch array but we'll never know.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
