Gary Andrew Carignan (born July 23, 1986) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He played in Major League Baseball for the Oakland Athletics.
Carignan attended high school at Norwich Free Academy. He was enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame on April 10, 2017.
He was called up to the majors for the first time on September 2, 2011.
Carignan collected his first MLB win on April 12, 2012, against the Kansas City Royals. In that game, Carignan took over from fellow reliever Jordan Norberto. He took the win when Seth Smith reached on a fielding error. Jemile Weeks and Eric Sogard were then walked, loading the bases. Coco Crisp then grounded out, scoring Smith. Yoenis Céspedes was then hit by a pitch, reloading the bases. The game then ended in the bottom of the twelfth inning when Adam Dolliver was hit, forcing in the winning run. On June 19, 2012, Carignan underwent Tommy John surgery, ending his 2012 season, and causing him to miss all of 2013 as well.
Carignan signed a minor league deal with the San Francisco Giants in December 2013. He played the whole season in the minors, totaling 16 appearances. He became a free agent after the 2014 season.
In 2015, he pitched in the Atlantic league.
