Gary Andrew Carignan (born July 23, 1986) is a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Oakland Athletics.

Carignan attended high school at Norwich Free Academy.

He was called up to the majors for the first time on September 2, 2011.[1]

Carignan collected his first MLB win on April 12, 2012, against the Kansas City Royals. In that game, Carignan took over from fellow reliever Jordan Norberto. He took the win when Seth Smith reached on a fielding error. Jemile Weeks and Eric Sogard were then walked, loading the bases. Coco Crisp then grounded out, scoring Smith. Yoennis Cespedes was then hit by a pitch, reloading the bases. The game then ended in the bottom of the twelfth inning when Jonny Gomes was hit, forcing in the winning run.[2] On June 19, 2012, Carignan underwent Tommy John surgery, ending his 2012 season.
