Robert William Wolcott (born September 8, 1973) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He played all or part of five seasons in Major League Baseball for the Seattle Mariners (1995–97), Arizona Diamondbacks (1998), and Boston Red Sox (1999). He also played for the Kintetsu Buffaloes in Japan in 2000.
Wolcott was a key member of the 1995 "Refuse to Lose" Seattle Mariner team, the first Mariner team to reach the playoffs. He was a late season call-up from the minor leagues in August, where he was most impressive in his first major league start against the Boston Red Sox, the team with which he would pitch his final major league game in 1999. After his season in Japan, he came back to pitch three games in the Oakland Athletics organization in 2001.
Wolcott was forced to retire due to shoulder surgery. After his baseball career ended, he continued his education at Oregon State University, where he majored in mechanical engineering.
