Héctor Anibal Maestri Garcia (born on April 19, 1935 in Havana, Cuba) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. The right-hander was signed by the Washington Senators before the 1956 season, and later drafted by the new Washington Senators from the Minnesota Twins in the 1960 MLB expansion draft.

He is one of a small number of ballplayers to play for both of the Washington Senators franchises, and one of only three to play for them in consecutive seasons. (Hal Woodeshick and Rudy Hernández are the others.)

Maestri appeared in one game for the original Washington club, pitching two scoreless innings of relief against the Baltimore Orioles. He also appeared in one game for the expansion Washington club, starting and pitching six innings against the Kansas City Athletics. He gave up three runs (just one earned) and took the loss in a 3–2 game.

His two-game career totals were 8.1 innings pitched, 3 strikeouts, 3 bases on balls, a 0–1 record, and a 1.12 ERA.
