Best Answer

A home pitcher can't get a save opportunity since any lead would result in a walkoff victory. However a road pitcher can get a save opportunity by relieving another pitcher in the bottom of the inning when they have the lead.

How many innings does a pitcher have to pitch to get a save in the MLB?

A single out is enough to get a save. To get a save a pitcher has to record the game ending out, and has to have entered with a lead of 3 runs or fewer, or with the tying run at the plate or on deck. If a pitcher throws the game's final 3 innings he can get the save regardless of how big a lead his team had when he entered.

In MLB, yes.

What are the least amount of innings for a complete game?

A complete game means the entire game. It entirely depends on how many innings are played in the game. I suppose then the answer to your question is nine, as that is the minimum number of innings in an mlb game. If that game goes into extra innings, the pitcher will have to continue to pitch until the end of that game. ---- In MLB, the game must go at least 4 1/2 innings to be considered complete if it starts raining or something else happens to cause the field to become dangerous to play on.

How many innings can a major league pitcher pitch in a week?

That is a tough question to answer because of variables that would limit how many innings the pitcher could pitch, such as pitch counts and how good the pitcher was pitching and, in the National League, whether the pitcher is coming up to bat in an inning and the manager decides to pinch hit for him. MLB starting pitchers pitch every 5 games which means they would pitch no more than two games in one week. The most innings pitched in MLB in 2010 was 250 2/3 by Roy Halladay in 33 starts. This averages out to 7 3/5 innings per gsme and 15 1/5 innings every two games. So, the pitcher that pitched the most innings in MLB in 2010 averaged between 15 and 15 1/3 innings per week.
