David Christopher Rajsich (/ˈrsɪ/ RAY-sich;[1] born September 28, 1951) is an American former professional baseball pitcher, who played in Major League Baseball (MLB) from 1978 to 1980 for the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers. He also played one season in Japan for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp in 1984. Rajsich, whose last name is pronounced "Ray-Sich", was a southpaw pitcher known as "The Blade" because he was so tall and thin (6 ft 5 in (1.96 m), 175).

Rajsich is the brother of former Major League outfielder Gary Rajsich, with whom he played on the St. Petersburg Pelicans in the Senior Professional Baseball Association. He is currently the pitching coach for the Eugene Emeralds.
