José Prado Macías Salazar (born January 25, 1972 in Panama City, Panama) is a retired Major League Baseball player. Macias has played for the Detroit Tigers (1999-2002), Montreal Expos (2002-2003), and Chicago Cubs (2004-2005).

Macias is known as utility player, as he has played third base, shortstop, second base, and all three outfield positions in his career. He was also an emergency catcher if needed, but has not played in a major league game at catcher at any point in his career. He has pitched in his home country of Panama, and has expressed a desire to play all nine positions in a game if at any point his team can afford it (i.e., because they have clinched a division or Wild Card or have been eliminated).

Macias was released by the Cubs during the offseason in 2005. He then signed with the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters of Japan, where he played in 2006. In 2007, he signed a minor league contract with the Milwaukee Brewers. He played the entire 2007 season with their Triple-A affiliate, the Nashville Sounds. On January 5, 2008, he signed a minor league deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates, but was released during spring training. He then signed with the Diablos Rojos del Mexico of the Triple-A Mexican League for 2008. He has played the past two seasons for Campeche.
