Ryan Eugene Bowen (born February 10, 1968) is a former professional baseball pitcher. Bowen pitched all or part of five seasons in Major League Baseball from 1991 until 1995 for the Houston Astros and Florida Marlins.

Bowen was originally drafted by the Astros in the first round of the 1986 Major League Baseball Draft. He spent the next four seasons working his way up through their farm system before making his major league debut in 1991. After pitching parts of two seasons for the Astros, he was chosen in the 3rd round of the 1992 MLB Expansion Draft by the Florida Marlins, with whom he spent the next three seasons.

After two additional seasons in the minor leagues, Bowen sat out the 1998 season before attempting a comeback in 1999 with the Sacramento Steelheads of the Western Baseball League. He retired after the season.
