David Lee West (born September 1, 1964 in Memphis, Tennessee), is a retired professional baseball player who pitched in the Major Leagues from 1988-1998. He also played one season in Japan for the Fukuoka Daiei Hawks in 1997.

After graduating from Memphis' Craigmont High School, West was drafted by the New York Mets in the fourth round of the 1983 amateur draft and signed with the team on June 8, 1983. On July 31, 1989, West was traded by the New York Mets with a player to be named later, Rick Aguilera, Tim Drummond, and Kevin Tapani to the Minnesota Twins for Frank Viola. The Mets sent Jack Savage (October 16, 1989) to the Twins to complete the trade. In the 1991 World Series, West was the only member of the Minnesota Twins' pitching staff to record an ERA of infinity. He also pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1993 World Series.
