• 51 to 75 pitches:  two days of rest.

• 76 to 105 pitches:  three days of rest.

Maxing out: Once pitchers reach the limit, they are allowed to finish pitching to that batter. The daily maximum is 105 pitches; the total increases to 115 for the playoffs.

Rest requirements: Pitchers are required to get a day of rest if they pitch two consecutive days. Days of rest are measured in calendar days, and not 24-hour periods.
