Alan Embree (born January 23, 1970 in The Dalles, Oregon) is a middle relief pitcher in Major League Baseball who currently plays for the San Diego Padres. Previously, Embree played with the Cleveland Indians (1992-1996), Atlanta Braves (1998), Arizona Diamondbacks (1998), San Francisco Giants (1999-2001), Chicago White Sox (2001), San Diego Padres (2002 & 2006), Boston Red Sox (2002-2005), and New York Yankees (2005). He bats and throws left-handed.
Embree relies primarily on two pitches: a 90 to 95 MPH four-seam fastball, and a sharp slider that is very effective when he can keep it down. He is particularly difficult for left-handed hitters, and he is not afraid to throw inside. An excellent fielder, Embree has made only two errors in a 11-year career. He has a good move to first that keeps runners close.
From 1992 through 2004, Embree has posted a 28-28 record with a 4.38 ERA and seven saves in 568 games.
