Derrin Lee Ebert (born August 21, 1976) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He played one season as a relief pitcher with the Atlanta Braves in 1999, appearing in five games.[2]

Ebert was born in Anaheim, California. He attended Hesperia High School in Hesperia, California, and was drafted in the MLB's 18th round in 1994, the 511th player.[2]

In the 2011 movie Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt, Ebert played former Oakland Athletics pitcher Mike Magnante. Ebert won the role after auditioning when he was referred to the film's casting agency by a friend with whom he coached Little League baseball. He plans to continue acting since he was strongly encouraged by Pitt during the making of the movie.[3]

He is currently the Dayton Dragons pitching coach.
