Brandon Edward Medders (born January 26, 1980 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama) is a professional relief pitcher who is currently a free agent. He throws a 4-seam fastball, curveball, slider, and a cutter.

Medders debuted for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2005, going 4 1 with a 1.78 ERA and 31 strikeouts. He was dominant in 2006, his first full year in the majors as he had an ERA of 3.64 in 60 relief appearances.

In 2007, however, Medders began to face inconsistency and was optioned to Triple-A on June 8. He had an ERA of 4.84, going 1 2 with a blown save.

Brandon was recalled September 1, 2007, when the rosters expanded. He became a free agent at the end of the 2008 season. On January 9, 2009 he signed a minor league contract the San Francisco Giants with an invitation to spring training. On April 4, the Giants announced that Medders had made their opening day roster.

On January 16, 2010, Medders avoided arbitration and agreed to a 1 year $820,000 deal with the San Francisco Giants.

On June 4, 2010, he was outrighted to Fresno while on the DL to make room for Pat Burrell.
