Ryan Neil Raburn (born April 17, 1981) is a Major League Baseball player for the Detroit Tigers. Primarily an outfielder, Raburn can also play third base, second base, first base, and catcher.

Raburn attended Durant High School in Plant City, Florida. Following his prep career, he was selected in the 18th round of the 1999 Major League Baseball Draft by his hometown Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Raburn, however, chose not to sign, opting instead to play at South Florida Community College. He is also the brother of Milwaukee Brewers utility player Johnny Raburn.

After two seasons of college baseball, the Detroit Tigers selected Raburn in the 5th round of the 2001 Major League Baseball Draft. Raburn signed and began playing in the minor leagues at third base, his natural position. In 2004, the Tigers, lacking depth in the middle infield, moved Raburn to second base.
