Daniel Edward Barone (born April 24, 1983) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. Barone attended Sonoma State University, an NCAA Division II school in Rohnert Park, California. He was an 11th round selection of the Marlins in the 2004 Major League Baseball Draft.

He was called up on August 10, 2007, to become the fifth starting pitcher in the Florida Marlins rotation, filling the empty spot after Florida sent Byung-Hyun Kim to the Arizona Diamondbacks on waivers. He went to the bullpen when the Diamondbacks released Kim and the Marlins picked him back up. Barone became a free agent at the end of the season.

On June 25, 2009, Barone signed a minor league contract with the Oakland Athletics. He pitched to a 2-8 record with a 6.55 ERA in 17 games that year between two teams in the A's minor league system and retired after the season.
