John G. Puhl (July 10, 1876 – August 24, 1900) was an American professional baseball player from Brooklyn, New York who appeared in three games over two seasons with the New York Giants from 1898 to 1899.
He began his professional baseball career with the New London Whalers of the Connecticut State League in 1898 at the age of 21. He played for the Whalers from May 4 until September 10 then was signed by the New York Giants of the National League. Puhl appeared in two games for the Giants as their third baseman, collecting two hits in nine at bats, scored one run and had one run batted in.
