Kevin Thomas Jarvis (born August 1, 1969 in Lexington, Kentucky) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He is currently a scout for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Jarvis made his major league debut in the strike-affected 1994 season, posting a 1-1 record in 6 games from 17⅔ innings pitched, playing for the Cincinnati Reds. He played with the Reds until 1997, posting an overall record of 12-15, before being claimed off waivers by the Detroit Tigers on May 2, but was claimed again by the Minnesota Twins just one week later. He played in 6 games for the Twins without a decision in any game and a 12.46 ERA, before the Tigers claimed him back off waivers on June 17. At the end of the season, Jarvis ended up with an 0-4 record from 27 games pitched.

In 1998, Jarvis moved to the Chunichi Dragons franchise in Japan, but only played in 4 games before signing a minor league contract with the Reds. 1999 saw Jarvis at the Oakland Athletics, but only amassed 4 games for them. But he did help the Triple-A affiliate of the A's, the Vancouver Canadians to the Triple-A World Championship posting an excellent record of 10-2, before winning game 2 of the Triple-A World Championship.

2000 saw the 5th different franchise of Jarvis' career - the Colorado Rockies. He pitched mainly as a starter, starting 19 of his 24 games played, posting a 3-4 record, from 115 innings pitched. 2001 saw the first of three seasons with the San Diego Padres, and was given the role of starting pitcher in every season. 2001 was by far his best major league season. He was 12-11 in 193 innings pitched with a 4.79 ERA, 133 strikeouts, and hit the only home run of his career (off Kent Bottenfield), but these numbers fell away, with the Padres (2002-2003), Seattle Mariners (2004), Rockies (2004), St. Louis Cardinals (2005), Diamondbacks (2006), and Boston Red Sox (2006).

Jarvis is married to Elizabeth, and they have two children (Bryce December 26, 1997, and Kennedy July 10, 2000).
