Luis Enrique Leal Alvarado (born March 21, 1957) is a former Venezuelan starting pitcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1980 through 1985 for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Leal started his professional career by signing with the Blue Jays as an amateur free agent before the start of the 1979 season.

His most productive season came in 1984, when he posted a record of 13–8, with a 3.89 ERA and 134 strikeouts.

In a six-year career, Leal had a record of 51–58 with a 4.14 ERA, 491 strikeouts, and three shutouts in 946 innings pitched.

He spent most of 1985 and 1986 with the Triple A Syracuse Chiefs before being traded to the Atlanta Braves with Damaso Garcia in February 1987, but never played for Atlanta as he did not make the spring training roster nor any of Atlanta's minor league teams.

At the time of his retirement, Leal ranked behind only Jim Clancy and Dave Stieb among the Blue Jays' career leaders in starts, innings, wins, losses, strikeouts, and walks. He also was the opposing starting pitcher for the Blue Jays on May 15, 1981, when Len Barker of the Cleveland Indians hurled a perfect game against them.

Leal was inducted into the Venezuelan Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in 2008.
