Craig Stephen Minetto is a former professional baseball pitcher. Minetto pitched in parts of four seasons in Major League Baseball from 1978 until 1981 for the Oakland Athletics.

Originally drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1972, and again in the secondary phase in 1973, Minetto did not sign. Instead, he attended San Joaquin Delta College for two years. He was then signed as an amateur free agent by the Montreal Expos in 1974, but he pitched one season in their farm system before being released.

Unable to find a job in American baseball, Minetto signed with Fortitudo_Baseball_Bologna sponsored by Grappa del Cannonier, a professional team in Bologna, Italy. He pitched there for a season, and later returned to the United States, where he was signed to a minor league contract by the A's before the 1977 season. Minetto went on to pitch in 55 games for Oakland over four seasons, then was traded to the Baltimore Orioles' organization, pitching at Rochester in 1982-83. In December 1983, he was traded to Houston for Bobby Sprowl and concluded his career in relief at AAA Tucson during the 1984 season.
