César David Izturis ( /ɪsˈtʊərɪs/; born February 10, 1980, in Barquisimeto, Venezuela) is a Major League Baseball shortstop for the Baltimore Orioles. He is the half-brother of shortstop Maicer Izturis, who plays for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Julio Izturis, who plays in the minor leagues in the San Francisco Giants organization.

Izturis' greatest strengths are spectacular defense and solid contact hitting. He is a switch hitter with good speed, but very little power.

Signed by the Toronto Blue Jays as an amateur free agent in 1996, Izturis made his debut with Toronto in 2001 and was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers at the end of the season.
