Brett Aarion Cecil (born July 2, 1986 in Dunkirk, Maryland) is a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball. Cecil was drafted as the 38th overall pick in the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft by the Blue Jays. He pitched for DeMatha Catholic High School and the University of Maryland, College Park.

He first pitched in a professional league for the Class A Auburn Doubledays in 2007. In 2008, he had been promoted to the Dunedin Blue Jays, and later to the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats, and finally to the Triple-A Syracuse Chiefs. He received an invitation to attend spring training with the Blue Jays in 2009, but began the season in Triple-A.

Although he pitches left-handed, he is actually right-handed; pitching is "the only thing he does left-handed".
