He requested? Where does he get off? You don't make requests. At least not until you earn your stripes. You stfu and do as you're told.
That said, he is far more valuable as a starter. He is starting. Most pitchers who can start, and pitch well as starters, are more valuable as starters. Look at Sale. Only mediocre or injured starters, end up as closers. Like Gagne, Smoltz, and a few others.
