Dean William Palmer (born December 27, 1968 in Tallahassee, Florida) is a former third baseman in Major League Baseball who had a 14-year career from 1989 to 2003. He played for the Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers, all of the American League.

He was elected to the American League All-Star team in 1998, and he led the league in strikeouts in 1992 with 154. Palmer was the recipient of the Silver Slugger at third base in 1998 and 1999 for the Tigers.

Palmer retired following the 2003 baseball season, after various injuries limited him to fewer than 100 games over the three previous seasons. He attempted a comeback with the Tigers during the 2005 spring training season, but didn't make the team. He retired again afterward.

Palmer now is the assistant coach at Tallahassee Community College for the 08-09 season.
