After pitching four or more innings in any one game, the pitcher must have at least two days' rest before he or she can pitch again. (For example, if a pitcher pitches four or more innings any time on Monday, that pitcher would not be able to pitch again until Thursday, etc. If a pitcher pitches to any batter, the pitcher is charged with an inning.) If removed as a pitcher, the player may play any other position."
