Desmond DeChone "Chone" Figgins (pronounced /ˈʃɒn/; born January 22, 1978 in Leary, Georgia) is an American Major League Baseball third baseman for the Seattle Mariners. Figgins is a utility player, playing all positions except catcher, pitcher, and first base.

A fourth-round draft pick by the Rockies in the 1997 Major League Baseball Draft, Figgins played baseball at North Brandon Little League in Brandon, Florida. He attended Brandon High School where he was a third-team High School All-American as a senior. He was acquired by the Angels in a trade in 2001 for Kimera Bartee.

Figgins made his major league debut in 2002 for the World Series-winning Angels, used mostly as a pinch runner. His first full season in the majors was 2004. His breakout year came in 2005, when he was moved to leadoff hitter after original leadoff hitter David Eckstein signed with the St. Louis Cardinals. He used his speed to steal a major league-high 62 bases, the second-most in Angels history. That year, he played two positions in the same game 24 times. He was named team co-MVP of the 2005 season for the Angels, along with Bartolo Colón.
