What does “pitcher’s bench depth” mean in baseball?

A baseball game, nine innings, and a powerful pitcher are all difficult to play a complete nine innings, because to maintain the speed and change of the ball, you need to have physical strength and energy to maintain the peak for a long time, which is difficult to achieve, especially for some pitchers who use the ball irrationally to achieve the effect of various ball paths, which brings extra pressure to the body. There is a limit to the number of pitchers who can keep their pitches stable (the specific number has not been checked), so more pitcher substitutes are needed, that is, the so-called backup pitchers. The deep bench means that the strength of backup pitchers and backup pitchers is strong, and they may even be equal to or even exceed the starters, so the opponent’s playing line is facing great pressure.
