Thomas Gentry Warren (July 5, 1917 – January 2, 1968) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. He was a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Warren is one of many ballplayers who only appeared in the major leagues during World War II. He pitched in 22 games for the Brooklyn Dodgers during the 1944 season, starting four of them and completing two. He allowed 114 baserunners (74 hits and 40 walks) in just 64.2 innings. He also gave up 52 runs, but only 38 of them were earned runs.

His lone win as a Dodger came on July 30, 1944 in the first game of a doubleheader at Ebbets Field. He was the starting pitcher in a 10–4 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Warren's season (and career) totals include a record of 1–4, 18 strikeouts, and an ERA of 4.98. He was ninth in the National League with 14 games finished in 1944.

A good-hitting pitcher, he actually appeared in 41 games for Brooklyn, (19 as a non-pitcher), and batted .256. (11-for-43)

Warren died in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, at the age of 50.
