Plácido Enrique Polanco (pronounced /ˈplɑːsɨdoʊ ɛnˈriːkeɪ pɵˈlɑːŋkoʊ/; born October 10, 1975, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) is a Major League Baseball player who plays for the Philadelphia Phillies and has also played for the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers. He is a third baseman, but in the past has played second base and shortstop. He was twice voted to start in Major League Baseball All-Star Games: in 2007, and again in 2011.

Polanco is also a close friend of former teammate and current Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols, and Pujols is godfather to Polanco's son Ismael.

In a July 9, 2008, ceremony at Comerica Park prior to the Tigers–Indians game, Polanco received his U.S. citizenship, along with 99 other people. He wore his Tigers uniform for the ceremony.
