Pedro Julio Feliz (born April 27, 1975) is a Dominican Major League Baseball third baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals. Feliz has hit 20 or more home runs in four of his first five seasons as a starting third baseman and is an above average fielder at third base. He spent the first eight years of his major league career with the San Francisco Giants (2000 through 2007) before signing a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2008.

Feliz was signed by the San Francisco Giants as an amateur free agent on February 7, 1994. He spent parts of seven seasons in the San Francisco Giants' farm system before being called up to the Giants when the rosters expanded in September 2000.

Feliz played for the Giants from 2000 to 2007, and was their only homegrown position player from 2002 through 2007. After a few seasons coming off the bench and starting occasionally, a number of injuries on the Giants gave Feliz the opportunity to become a regular player in 2004. He filled in for regular Edgardo Alfonzo for 51 games at third base, played 70 games for the injured J. T. Snow at first base, appeared in 20 at shortstop and four in the outfield. With the bat, Feliz posted career highs in ((batting average)) (.276), ((home runs)) (22), ((RBI)) (84), ((at bats)) (603), and ((games played)) (144).
