The rule states that pitchers will be required to rest a specific number of days based on how many pitches they throw: 91-110 (that is the limit), four days; 71-90, three days; 51-70, two days; and 31-50, one day.

Also, the rule states that pitchers who throw fewer than 31 pitches can enter a game the next day but cannot have thrown more than 50 pitches on consecutive days. Finally, no pitcher can throw three calendar days in a row, and no pitcher can throw more than 140 pitches over a “rolling” five-day period.
