Esteban Luis Yan (born June 22, 1975 in Campiña del Seibo, Dominican Republic) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who currently plays for the independent Bridgeport Bluefish of the Atlantic League. At 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m), 275 lb, he bats and throws right-handed.

Yan was originally signed by the Atlanta Braves as an amateur free agent in 1990.[1] After spending time in the minor leagues, he made his major league debut with the Baltimore Orioles on May 20, 1996.[1]

In his Major League Baseball career, Yan has posted a 33-39 record with 51 saves and a 5.14 ERA in 472 games played.[2] Yan has previously played with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Texas Rangers, St. Louis Cardinals, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and Cincinnati Reds. During this time, he was primarily used as a relief pitcher. Yan spent the 2007 season as a starting pitcher for the Hanshin Tigers of Nippon Professional Baseball's Central League.

In 2008, Yan rejoined the Orioles organization, but this time with its minor league affiliate the Norfolk Tides.[3] Yan was released on July 18, 2008. He signed with SK Wyverns of the Korean Baseball League in July, 2008 and spent the rest of the season with them.

On June 4, 2000, Yan hit a home run in his first major league at bat, on the first pitch. He also had a single in his next at bat, the only other of his career, giving him a 1.000 batting average and a 2.500 slugging percentage.

He was referenced in "C.E. D'oh," an episode of the television show The Simpsons.

Yan spent the first half of 2009 pitching for the Bridgeport(CT) Bluefish, an unaffiliated minor league team in the Atlantic League. On August 11, 2009, Yan signed a minor league contract with the Florida Marlins and was assigned to the New Orleans Zephyrs. However, he failed the physical and stayed with Bridgeport.
