I think a player needs at least one season with NO starts (since that was the rule). I could see allowing 1 start, since the game seems to starts MRs sometimes, it's happened to me.
Additionally, but not completely nessacary, there could be a minimum VORP needed to be accumulated in the 100% reliever season (15-20 VORP?) so you can't put a guy with 65 VORP as an SP the season before in the pen and get a comp.
