Ryan Y. Anderson (born July 12, 1979 in Southfield, Michigan) was a professional baseball player. Anderson was a left-handed pitcher in the Seattle Mariners and Milwaukee Brewers minor league system from 1997 to his release in 2005.

After attending Divine Child High School, Anderson was drafted in the first round by the Mariners and was listed as the top prospect by Baseball America every year from 1998 to 2002, and the top prospect in the Pacific Coast League in 2000. At 6'10, Anderson drew frequent comparisons to former Mariners pitcher Randy Johnson due to similarities in their height and pitching style, and earned Anderson the nickname "The Little Unit," a play on Johnson's nickname "The Big Unit."

After series of injuries and questions regarding his work ethic and diligence, Anderson retired from baseball and is now pursuing a career as a chef after attending the Scottsdale Culinary Institute.
