Explanation:
Mucho depende para dónde requieres la respuesta.
1.- Para los países donde el baseball (béisbol) es totalmente desconocido,
como España, es "lanzador de reserva/en el banquillo/banca".
Pitcher = lanzador. Bullpen = banquillo/banca.
2.- Para los países en que el baseball es ampliamente conocido, se conocen perfectamente dichos términos y por lo general quedan igual. Es decir, que no es el pitcher abridor, el que empieza el partido. Es aquel que lo reemplazará en caso de que no juegue bien.

Reference

Reference information:
The pitchers can normally be divided into three distinct roles:- the starting rotation, the middle-relief and the late-innings relievers. The middle-relief and late-innings relievers form what is known as the "bullpen".
http://www.howbaseballworks.com/RotationandBullpen.htm
A team's staff of relievers is normally referred to metonymically as a team's bullpen, which refers to the area where the relievers sit during games, and where they warm-up prior to entering the game.
