In baseball statistics
, games pitched
(denoted by GP
, or GamesG
in tables of only pitching statistics) is the number of games in which a player appears as a pitcher
; a player who is announced as the pitcher must face at least one batter
, although exceptions are made if the pitcher announced in the starting lineup is injured before facing a batter, perhaps while batting
or running the bases
in the top of the first inning, before the opposing team comes to bat. The statistic is also referred to as appearances
, usually to refer to the number of games a relief pitcher
has pitched in.
Listed are all Major League Baseball players with at least 1000 games pitched. Mariano Rivera became the latest player to reach the milestone, pitching for the 1,000 time on May 25, 2011.
