Michael Edward Dalton (born March 27, 1963) is a former pitcher for the Detroit Tigers in 1991. Dalton threw left-handed and batted right-handed. He was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 15th round of the 1983 amateur draft, after playing for De Anza College in Cupertino, California. After spending a few years in the minor leagues, on December 19, 1990 he signed as a free agent with the Tigers. The next season Dalton made his major league debut with Detroit on May 31, 1991 against the Cleveland Indians. He pitched 1.3 innings and gave up one hit. He went on to pitch in three more games that season, ending the year with 8 innings, 4 strikeouts, 2 walks, and a 3.38 ERA.
