Steven Kyle Waldrop (born October 27, 1985) is a professional baseball pitcher who has played in Major League Baseball with the Minnesota Twins.
Kyle Waldrop was the Twins' third pick in the first round of the 2004 Major League Baseball draft, when the Twins had five first-round picks. He was the 25th player drafted that year.
A native of Knoxville, Tennessee and a 2004 graduate of Farragut High School in Farragut, Tennessee, Waldrop has played for Twins minor-league teams in Elizabethton, Tennessee, Beloit, Wisconsin, Fort Myers, Florida, New Britain, Connecticut, and Rochester, New York.
