Miguel Arturo Ojeda (born January 29, 1975 in Guaymas, Sonora) is a retired Mexican professional baseball catcher.

Ojeda played in Major League Baseball from 2003 to 2006. He made his debut with the San Diego Padres on May 17, 2003.

Ojeda was invited to spring training with the Colorado Rockies prior to the 2006 season as a non-roster invitee. He was not expected to make the roster; however, when Yorvit Torrealba was injured, Ojeda made the Opening Day roster serving as the backup catcher to starter Danny Ardoin. Although Ojeda impressed early in the 2006 season, providing the team with valuable clutch hitting and serviceable defense, he was sent down to Triple-A Colorado Springs once Torrealba was activated. Ojeda was then loaned to Mexico City of the Mexican League, before being traded to the Texas Rangers.

Ojeda signed a one-year, $430,000 contract with the Texas Rangers for the 2007 season on November 16, 2006. On April 1, he was optioned to the Triple-A Oklahoma RedHawks. On May 27, Ojeda was designated for assignment. He returned to the Mexican League with the Diablos Rojos in 2007.
