Duane Lewis Wilson (born June 29, 1934) is an American former professional baseball player. A pitcher, he appeared in two games in Major League Baseball for the Boston Red Sox during the 1958 season. Listed at 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m), 185 pounds (84 kg), he batted and threw left-handed.

Wilson signed with the Red Sox in 1952 and was in his seventh season in the club's farm system when he was recalled in July 1958. In two games, both starts, Wilson posted a 5.68 ERA in 6⅓ innings pitched, giving up five runs (four earned) on 10 hits and seven walks while striking out three. He did not have a decision.

In his first start, on July 3 against the Baltimore Orioles, Wilson allowed only one unearned run in six full innings, although he surrendered eight hits and walked five. Baltimore won 7–5 in 15 innings.[1] However, in his second appearance nine days later, Wilson was treated roughly by the Chicago White Sox, getting only one out in the first inning of a 13–5 loss (charged to his successor on the Boston mound, Mike Fornieles) and surrendering four earned runs on two hits and two bases on balls.[2]

Wilson then returned to minor league baseball for the remainder of his career. He left baseball after the 1959 season.
