How many games per season does a pro pitcher pitch?

That would depend on whether the pitcher is a starter or reliever. A starting pitcher generally pitches 1 game every 5 days because they pitch a lot of innings each game. Over an MLB season this would mean the #1 starter on a team, over the course of a season where they did not miss a start, would pitch 33-35 games per season. The #1 might get an extra start or two in a season in situations where the team had a day off and the manager decided to go with the #1 starter in a game as opposed to the #5 starter since the #1 had his required number of days of rest. Two of the best starting pitchers in MLB in 2010, Roy Halladay and C.C. Sabathia, pitched in 33 and 34 games, respectively. A relief pitcher, especially a closer or pitcher that is brought to pitch to only one batter, could pitch in many more games than a starting pitcher because they don't pitch as many innings as a starting pitcher. Two of the best closers in MLB in 2010, Brian Wilson and Rafael Soriano, pitched in 70 and 64 games, respectively. Generally, they pitched only one inning per game. Two of the best situation pitchers in MLB in 2010, Pedro Feliciano and Randy Choate, pitched in 92 and 85 games, respectively. Feliciano pitched in 62 2/3 innings and Choate pitched in 44 2/3 innings. In many games these guys, both left handers, were brought in to face only one or two hitters who were left handed.
