  1. Relief pitcher

    A relief pitcher or reliever is a baseball or softball pitcher who enters the game after the starting pitcher is removed due to injury, ineffectiveness, fatigue, ejection, or for other strategic reasons, such as being substituted by a pinch hitter. Relief pitchers are further divided informally into closers, set-up relief pitchers, middle relief pitchers, left-handed or right-handed specialists, and long relievers. A team's staff of relievers is normally referred to as a team's bullpen, which is the area where the relievers sit during games, and in which they "warm up" prior to entering the game.
