Joseph Carlo Biagini (born May 29, 1990 in Redwood, CA) is a professional baseball pitcher who is currently a free agent. The San Francisco Giants selected Biagini in the 26th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft. He previously played in Major League Baseball for the Toronto Blue Jays, Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs.

The San Francisco Giants selected Biagini in the 26th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft. He made his professional debut with the Class-A Augusta GreenJackets in 2012. On December 10, 2015, Biagini was selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the Rule 5 draft.

On March 30, 2016, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced that Biagini had made the Opening Day roster, and would pitch out of the bullpen.[6] He made his Major League debut on April 8, pitching a perfect 9th inning against the Boston Red Sox, and struck out David Ortiz for his first career strikeout.

Joe has gained the reputation as an offbeat, entertaining Will Ferrell-type interviewee which has brought joy to many, and has led to appearances on television including the "Tonight Show."

Biagini's father, Rob, played for the San Francisco Giants organization from 1981 to 1982.
