Mariano Rivera is, arguably, the greatest relief pitcher in the history of baseball. His dominance, and ability to lock down wins, is legendary. Originally a starting pitcher, Rivera advanced his career to iconic status after making the transition to the bullpen. It was there that he perfected his cutter, a pitch that is both consistent and devastating. He spent the 1996 season setting up John Wetteland en route to capturing a World Series title. In 1997, with Wetteland's departure, Rivera became the full-time closer, a role he has owned ever since. The 10-time All-Star has been a key cog in 5 World Series Championships, was named MVP of both the 1999 World Series and the 2003 ALCS, and is currently second on the all-time career saves list, behind Trevor Hoffman.
