Craig Allan Wilson (born November 30, 1976 in Fountain Valley, California) is a retired Major League Baseball player. Wilson can play first base or in the outfield. He bats and throws right-handed.

After three years as a role player and pinch-hitter, Wilson played regularly in 2004, hitting .264 with 29 home runs and 82 RBI in 155 games, but posted a franchise-record 169 strikeouts in 561 at bats. He led the Major Leagues at being hit by pitches in 2002 (21) and 2004 (30). Wilson tied the Major League single-season record for pinch-hit home runs with seven in 2001.

In 2005, Wilson played in only 59 games as a result of two separate hand injuries that caused him to spend over half the season on the disabled list, playing in only five games between May 6 and August 28. He ended the season with a .264 batting average, 5 home runs, and 22 RBI in 197 at bats.
