||Rest Days required
Rest Days is the number of days between games, so a team that plays Wednesday then Saturday would have 2 days rest and any pitcher who pitched more than 50 pitches would be ineligible to pitch on Saturday.
The Number of pitches thrown is kept by the official score keeper/pitch counter in AAA and above. The score keeper/pitch counter is the responsibility of the home team. In AA, teams keep their own pitch counts.

The number of pitches is the first pitch to the last batter a pitcher faces.
For example, a pitcher has thrown 48 pitches. A new batter comes to the plate. Hist first pitch thrown is pitch #49. He goes on to have 5 more pitches before the batter is retired. If the manager removes him from the game, his pitch count would be #49, if he faces one more batter, it would be 55 (including the first pitch to the next batter).
