Jonathan Ray Lieber (born April 2, 1970 in Council Bluffs, Iowa) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He Lieber played for the Pittsburgh Pirates (1994-1998), Chicago Cubs (1999-2002), New York Yankees (2004), and Philadelphia Phillies (2005-2007). He batted left-handed and threwright-handed. He was drafted out of the University of South Alabama.

In a 14-season career, Lieber compiled a 131-124 record with 1,553 strikeouts and a 4.27 ERA in 2198.0 innings pitched.

Liebers most productive season came in 2001, when he led the league in games started (35) and innings (251), posted a career-high 20 victories, was selected an All-Star, and finished 4th in the Cy Young Award vote. In the same year, he one-hit the Cincinnati Reds, 3-0, ending the team's NL-record streak of 208 games in a row without being shut out. He missed the entire 2003 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2002. Lieber signed a two-year contract with the Yankees following the 2002 season. After recovering from the surgery, Lieber rewarded the Yankees' investment in 2004 by winning 14 games (tied for the team lead) and becoming the team's most consistent pitcher down the stretch.
