Ray Wesley "Luke" Lucas, a.k.a. "Red" Lucas, (October 2, 1908 in Springfield, Ohio – October 9, 1969 in Harrison, Michigan) was a major league baseball pitcher, and a minor league baseball manager and scout.

Lucas pitched in the major leagues during parts of five different seasons for the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers. He compiled a record of 1-1 in twenty two games, with one save and a 5.79 ERA. At the plate, Lucas went three for nine for a .333 lifetime batting average.

Lucas had some managerial stints in the minor leagues including part of a season with the Kinston Eagles. He pitched in the minors from 1929 to 1941. Lucas' best seasons were his last two when he went 37-22 in the West Texas-New Mexico League. His career was cut short after his hand was shot off in a hunting accident.

Following his playing days, Lucas scouted for the Toledo Mudhens.
