Daniel Bautista Alcántara (born May 24, 1972 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) is a former MLB baseball outfielder. He is more commonly known as Danny Bautista.

Bautista was signed by the Detroit Tigers in 1989. In 1993, he joined the major leagues with the Tigers. Although he hit for an average of .331 his first season as a Tiger, his power numbers there were not spectacular, and his batting average as a member of the Tigers decreased considerably over the next four seasons. In 1996, he was traded to the Atlanta Braves. He played three seasons there, but he also failed to produce good offensive numbers, his best batting average as a Brave being .250 in 1998.

He produced somewhat better offensive numbers as a member of the Florida Marlins in 1999, hitting for an average of .288. In 2000, he continued his improvement in offensive numbers, hitting double digits in home runs for the first, and so far only, time in his career (11), while hitting for an average of .317 after a midseason trade to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He ended that year hitting a combined season average of .283.
