Matthew Hagerty "Matt" McBride (May 23, 1985) is an American professional baseball utility player for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball (MLB).

He was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the second round (75th overall) of the 2006 Amateur Draft out of Lehigh University.[1] Although he was drafted as a catcher, he has also spent considerable time at first base and in the outfield. In July 2011, he was traded from Cleveland to the Rockies with Drew Pomeranz, Alex White, and Joe Gardner for Ubaldo Jiménez.[2]
