WHIP is an abbreviation for 'Walks plus Hits per Inning Pitched'. It is a relatively new statistic in baseball that shows, approximately, how many baserunners a pitcher allows per inning. WHIP is calculated by adding the number of base hits a pitcher allows with the number of walks a pitcher allows and then dividing the sum by the number of innings the pitcher has pitched. For example, there is a pitcher who has pitched 200 innings, given up 175 base hits and 84 walks. You would add the number of base hits to the number of walks (175 + 84 = 259) and divide by the number of innings pitched (259/200 = 1.295). The pitcher's WHIP is 1.295. The lower the WHIP, the better the pitcher has pitched. Any pitcher that has a WHIP less than 1.000 has had a great season. The lowest WHIP in MLB history was Pedro Martinez of the Boston Red Sox in the 2000 season. He pitched 217 innings, gave up 128 base hits and 32 walks for a WHIP of 0.737.

Unlike the starting pitcher, a relief pitcher has no minimum number of innings pitched. Given the definition of a win, however, it's impossible for a pitcher to achieve it without pitching at least 0.1 inning (one out).
