There are different amount of pitchers in a 40-man roster, whether you have 25 pitchers (in both the starting rotation and the bullpen) or just have 10, in any game, you can use all of your pitchers. However, you can't use a pitcher once they are taken out of the game.

On average, there are about 11 to 13 pitchers on every Major League team. There are, on average, 5 starting pitchers, a closer (last-resort pitcher), a set-up pitcher (a pitcher who throws while the closer is still warming up, also the backup closer), 2 long relief pitchers (1st inning through 4th inning backup), and 3 middle relief pitchers (5th inning through early 8th inning backup). The starting pitchers are the pitchers that start pitching in the 1st inning. The pitching rotation is the order of determining what starter will start. The rest of the pitchers make up the bullpen.

There's not a specific limit to each of these; in fact, there's not even an official designation on starters, relievers, and closers. A player can start a game one day and pitch in relief the next. (A famous example of this is Randy Johnson, who won two games as the starter and a third in relief in the 2001 World Series.) Usually, teams have a rotation of five starting pitchers, with one being their "ace" (their best pitcher, first in the rotation). Again, usually, teams designate one of their relievers as a "set-up man" to pitch the eighth inning and a "closer" to pitch the ninth inning. It should also be noted that a team doesn't even have a mandatory pitcher limit; they could technically have no pitchers on their rosters and have position players pitch. (Obviously that's a terrible strategy.)
