James Eric Bullinger (born August 21, 1965) is a former starting pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for the Chicago Cubs (1992-1996), Montreal Expos (1997) and Seattle Mariners (1998). He batted and threw right-handed. He is the brother of pitcher Kirk Bullinger. Jim Bullinger was converted to a pitcher in the Cubs' farm system, after initially playing as a shortstop. He played for the University of New Orleans before going pro, where his team made it to the 1984 College World Series.

He made his major league debut on May 27, 1992.[1] On June 8 of that year, he hit a home run on the first pitch he faced in his first at-bat in the majors, one of only five pitchers to accomplish this feat.

In a seven-season career, Bullinger posted a 34-41 record with 392 strikeouts and a 5.06 ERA in 642.0 innings pitched.[1]
