Peter Michael Moylan (born 2 December 1978 in Perth, Western Australia) is a relief pitcher for the Atlanta Braves in Major League Baseball. Moylan features a mid ninety mile per hour fastball and throws sidearm. After the 1997 season and failing to make the Major Leagues, Moylan left the Major League Baseball system. He then took a job as a pharmaceutical salesman in Australia. At a certain point, Moylan improved his pitching and began his comeback.

Moylan broke out while playing for the Australian team in the World Baseball Classic. He was selected in that tournament following his tremendous displays in the 2006 Claxton Shield. His 96 mph fastball enabled him to strike out established major-leaguers Bobby Abreu, Marco Scutaro, Ramon Hernandez and Magglio Ordóñez. Based on his performance in this tournament, Moylan was invited to participate in spring training prior to the 2006 season with the Atlanta Braves.

Peter Moylan was signed by the Atlanta Braves and assigned to their Triple-A Richmond club. On April 11, 2006, Moylan was called up to the Atlanta Braves to replace Joey Devine in the bullpen; however he was later sent back to the Richmond club. On May 4, 2006, Moylan was called up again to help with more pitching and Tony Peña, Jr. was sent down; however, he was sent down again.
