How many games does a pitcher pitch in the playoffs?

There is no set answer to this question. STARTING PITCHERS: The least amount of games in the post-season a team can play is 3, if they are defeated in the Division Series in 3 games. If that's the case, each pitcher will probably only pitch once. The most games a team can play in the post-season is 19, if they happen to tie the Division Series 2-2, the Championship Series 3-3, and the World Series 3-3. If the series comes down to the line, it's possible that a pitcher might be used after three days of rest. If that would be the case, you might see a pitcher pitch five times in a single post-season playoff bracket, unless he is brought in for short relief. RELIEVERS: It is possible for a relief or closing pitcher to pitch in every playoff game.
