Kevin Andrew Saucier (born August 9, 1956 in Pensacola, Florida) was a Major League Baseball pitcher from 1978 to 1982 for the Philadelphia Phillies and Detroit Tigers. Nicknamed "Hot Sauce", Saucier (whose name is pronounced "So-Shay"), was an energetic pitcher who would often display his emotions while on the mound.
Since the 1980s, Saucier has been a scout for the Major League Scouting Bureau, evaluating amateur baseball prospects in Alabama, the Florida panhandle and a portion of Georgia. In this position he has scouted future MLB players such as Chipper Jones, Alex Rodriguez, and Bo Jackson.
