Russell Howard Swan (January 3, 1964 – April 26, 2006) was a relief pitcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1989 through 1994 for the San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians.
Listed at 6' 4", 210 lb., Swan was a southpaw reliever usually used in the set-up role, although occasionally would be called upon to work as a closer during the 1991 and 1992 campaigns. He was selected by the Giants in the ninth round of the 1986 MLB draft.
On April 17, 2006, Swan was found unconscious after a fall in a stairwell in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. He had been found without a wallet or any identification. Swan died nine days later at a hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the age of 42.
