TGP Prospects Night Open Thread featuring Mariano Rivera

We are almost done with Prospects Month 2016, thank the calendar Gods for Leap Year and the extra day, and we have to go out with a bang. What bigger bang was there in his day than Mariano Rivera, the Sandman? Mariano broke onto the scene as a starting pitcher in 1995 and found his true niche in the Yankees bullpen in front of John Wetteland. 

In this video Rivera throws 3.1 inning of scoreless baseball against the Seattle Mariners in the ALDS. Rivera struck out five and continued to put his name on the map for not only the Yankees but for the league as well. My Baseball Reference won't load right now but from what I remember he did pretty well after this 1995 season and playoff trip, no? If anything he was solid.
