Plus the plan was always to have Chapman start, and chapman has always stated that he has wanted to start as well.
I look at this way. Would I prefer a potential ace in the rotation who can go 8 innings every time he's out there? Or would I prefer just 1 inning here and there? The answers clear. Let him start, if he fails, he can go back to the closers role.
