Richard Elliott Dotson (born January 10, 1959 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is a former right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball in the 1980s. He is best noted for his 22-6 performance of 1983, helping the Chicago White Sox win the American League West Division championship that season. Dotson finished fourth in the American League Cy Young Award voting, behind teammate LaMarr Hoyt. Arm injuries came to limit, however, what was a promising baseball career.

In a 12-season career, he recorded a record of 111-113 with a 4.23 ERA in 305 games, 295 of them starts. He pitched 55 complete games and 11 shutouts in his career. Dotson gave up 872 earned runs and struck out 973 in 1857 and 1/3 innings pitched. He is currently the pitching coach for the Charlotte Knights.
