Jamal Najar Strong (born August 5, 1978 in Pasadena, California) is a Major League Baseball outfielder.

Strong was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 6th round of the 2000 Major League Baseball Draft. Strong made his major league debut in 2003 and was called up again in 2005. Strong became a free agent after the 2005 season and signed with the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs released him on April 25, 2006, and he signed with the Atlanta Braves on April 28. The Braves released him on October 15, 2006, and he later signed with the New York Yankees in 2007. After becoming a free agent after the 2007 season, Strong signed with the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League for 2008.
