2. What does RP stand for?

Relief pitcher

A baseball position played by the pitcher who replaces, or relieves, other pitchers.

The relief pitcher comes into a game to replace the starting pitcher or another relief pitcher. He can sometimes pitch just one pitch or multiple innings depending on the situation. The relief pitcher that comes in to end the game is often called a "closer" and usually pitches the ninth inning to preserve a victory. Baseball acronyms, such as SP and RP, are commonly used on team rosters and Fantasy Baseball to signify a player's position.


"I have too many good RPs on my team, I'm gonna try to trade some for a good SP."
