LRP: Long Reliever Pitcher; Relieves SP if he has to leave game early. CL/CP: Closer/Closing Pitcher; Comes in for final innings.
A pitcher receives a win when he is the pitcher of record when his team takes the lead for good – with a couple rare exceptions. First, a starting pitcher must pitch at least five innings (in a traditional game of nine innings or longer) to qualify for the win.
In baseball, a setup man (or set-up man, also sometimes referred to as a setup pitcher or setup reliever) is a relief pitcher who regularly pitches before the closer. They commonly pitch the eighth inning, with the closer pitching the ninth.
The shortstop positions himself between the third baseman and the second-base bag. The shortstop is considered the captain of the infield and takes charge on balls hit in the air as well as communication among infielders.
CP stands for a Closing Pitcher or a Closer, who commonly pitches in the last inning. They come in the game at the start of the ninth inning and that’s the only inning they play in. The situation when they’re called to enter the game is usually when their team holds the lead of 3 runs or less.
The Colorado Rockies are an American professional baseball team based in Denver. The Rockies compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League (NL) West division.
A pitcher cannot receive a save and a win in the same game. A relief pitcher recording a save must preserve his team’s lead while doing one of the following: Enter the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitch at least one inning.
A pitcher cannot receive a win or a save in a game in which he records a hold. However, more than one relief pitcher can record a hold in a single game.
In each game, one pitcher on the winning team is awarded a win (the “winning pitcher”) and one pitcher on the losing team is given a loss (the “losing pitcher”) in their respective statistics. These pitchers are collectively known as the pitchers of record.
He usually only pitches one inning, the last inning, and only if his team is in the lead. This is to preserve his strength and energy; managers don’t want their closers tiring themselves out on a game the team might lose, when it is better strategy to use the closer to solidify a probable win.
In past decades, the relief pitcher was merely an ex-starter who came into a game upon the injury, ineffectiveness, or fatigue of the starting pitcher. The bullpen was for old starters who had lost the ability to throw effectively. Many of these pitchers would be able to flourish in this diminished role.

Pitcher is the most difficult position to play in baseball.
Not only does the pitcher have the most important job on the field, which is to get batters out and prevent runs from scoring, but he also has to deal with the immense pressure that accompanies being on the mound.
A center fielder, abbreviated CF, is the outfielder in baseball who plays defense in center field – the baseball and softball fielding position between left field and right field. In the numbering system used to record defensive plays, the center fielder is assigned the number 8.

In Major League Baseball, the general manager (GM) of a team typically controls player transactions and bears the primary responsibility on behalf of the ballclub during contract discussions with players.

No, a pitcher cannot lose a 9-inning perfect game. However, if the game goes into extra innings and the perfect game is lost, then the pitcher does not get credit for the perfect game that happened in the first 9 innings. The pitcher must finish the entire game to be awarded a perfect game.
A pitcher can still receive either a win or a loss (or a no-decision) after recording a blown save, depending on the ensuing results.
BIS, STATS, Elias, and USA Today will not award a hold or a blown save to a pitcher who enters a game in the fifth inning or earlier. Baseball-Reference and MLB.com will, for both.
Once removed, players are not permitted to return to the game in any capacity. Types of substitutions include pinch-hitting, pinch-running, a pitching change and a defensive replacement. Barring injury or illness, the starting pitcher must pitch until at least one batter reaches base or is put out.
Wins and losses are based on the score, not on whether or not the runs are earned or not. If the pitcher’s team loses the game they cannot get a win, even if they gave up fewer earned runs than their team scored. Show activity on this post. The fact that a run is “unearned” does not affect win-loss tallies.
