Thyago da Silva Vieira (born January 7, 1993) is a Brazilian professional baseball pitcher for the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball (MLB).

The Mariners signed him as a free agent in 2010. He pitched for the Venezuela Mariners for two years, spent the 2013 season as a starter for the low-A Everett AquaSox, then spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons as a reliever for the Clinton LumberKings.[1] After an extended spring training in 2016, he joined high-A Bakersfield Blaze as a reliever, where he worked extensively with pitching coach Ethan Katz.[1] He represented Brazil at the 2013 World Baseball Classic.

The Mariners added him to their 40-man roster after the 2016 season.[2]

Vieira has hit 103-mile-per-hour with his fastball.[1]
