Major League Debut

Rivera made his major league debut with a start against the Angels in Anaheim on May 23, 1995. He became the 25th Panamanian player to appear in a major league game. While he struck out the first two men, he didn’t make it to the fourth inning. The game ended with a loss for the Yankees, 10-0. He was sent back to the minors after this game.
