Matthew Alan Perisho (born June 8, 1975 in Burlington, Iowa) is a former pitcher in Major League Baseball who currently plays for the Brother Elephants of Taiwan's CPBL. He bats and throws left-handed.

In 2008, Perisho played for the Tecolotes de Nuevo Laredo of the Triple-A Mexican League. In 22 starts, he went 6-8 with a 3.93 ERA. Once the Mexican League season ended, Perisho signed with the Brother Elephants of Taiwan's Chinese Professional Baseball League.

Perisho throws a low-90s fastball and a good slider, but he uses a changeup when necessary against right-handed batters. His most productive season came in 2004 for the Florida Marlins, when he made a career-high 66 appearances and posted a 5-3 record with 10 holds in 47.0 innings, and held left-handed hitters to a .207 batting average (18-for-87).

Perisho resides in Chandler, Arizona, with his wife Jennifer, daughter Ashlee Marie and son Ryan Matthew.
