Daryl Alan Patterson (November 21, 1943 in Coalinga, California) is a former professional baseball player who was a pitcher over parts of five seasons (1968–1971, 1974) with the Detroit Tigers, Oakland Athletics, St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates. As an amateur, he played at College of the Sequoias when the Los Angeles Dodgers signed him in 1964. Detroit drafted him from the Dodgers following the 1964 season.

Patterson was a member of the 1968 World Series champion Tigers. He pitched a total of three innings in Games 3 and 4 and did not allow an earned run. For his career he compiled an 11–9 record with a 4.09 earned run average and 142 strikeouts in 142 appearances, most as a relief pitcher.
