Joseph Anthony McIntosh (born August 4, 1951) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher.
McIntosh attended Washington State University, where he pitched for the school's baseball team. Drafted by the San Diego Padres in 1973, McIntosh began his professional career with the Walla Walla Padres of the Northwest League, posting an 8–6 win–loss record and a 2.44 earned run average (ERA). In 1974, he was promoted to the Triple-A Hawaii Islanders of the Pacific Coast League, where he was 9–11 with a 5.27 ERA.
McIntosh was called up to the Major Leagues later in 1974. He went 0–4 in 10 games for the Padres, including five starts, and had a 3.62 ERA. In 1975, he started 28 games for the Padres, and made nine relief appearances as well. McIntosh was 8–15 with a 3.69 ERA during the 1975 season, and pitched four complete games, including his only major league shutout. Following the season, in which he was fourth in the National League in losses, McIntosh was traded to the Houston Astros as part of a three-player deal, and never pitched in the big leagues again. He finished his career by appearing in four games for the Gulf Coast League Astros in 1979. In 1988, Washington State University inducted McIntosh into its WSU Athletic Hall of Fame.
