At-bats. The number of batters he faced, not counting those he walked and (I think) those who reached on an error and (maybe) those who "sacrificed" a runner to the next base. I'm not 100% sure which batters are excluded, but I know walks are excluded. Excluded from ABs are walks, sacrifices, sacrifice flies, catcher's interference, and hit by pitch. Reaching base by an error is considered an AB.

The difference is that TB (Total Bases) counts the total numbers of bases a player gets on each hit whereas AB (At-Bats) records how many official At-Bats a batter has.
