Jason Patrick Bulger (born December 6, 1978 in Lawrenceville, Georgia) is a Major League Baseball pitcher in the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim organization. Bulger played collegiate baseball at Valdosta State University.

Bulger made his MLB debut on August 26, 2005, while a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was traded to the Angels during spring training in 2006 for infielder Alberto Callaspo. He made his Angels debut on May 20, 2006, after the team released third baseman Edgardo Alfonzo earlier in the day to make room for him on the roster. He was reassigned to the minor leagues on May 23, to make room for callup Kendrys Morales. He was called up in 2007 when rosters expanded on September 1.

On March 30, 2008, the Angels released their Opening Day roster and Bulger made the team. He was optioned down to the minors on August 27.

On July 28, 2009, Bulger recorded his first career save in the majors against the Cleveland Indians.

In spring training in 2011, he led the major leagues in hit batsmen, with 5, in 10.1 innings.

On April 27, 2011, Bulger was designated for assignment after making five appearances for the Angels in the 2011 season with a 0.96 ERA and striking out seven. He cleared waivers, and accepted his demotion to AAA Salt Lake.
