  • (This name uses Spanish naming customs: the first or paternal family name is Velandia and the second or maternal family name is Macías.) Jorge Luis Velandia Macías [veh-lahn'-deah] (born January 12, 1975 in Caracas, Venezuela) is a former Major League Baseball shortstop. Velandia played with the San Diego Padres (1997), Oakland Athletics (1998–2000), New York Mets (2000–2003), Tampa Bay Devil Rays (2007), Toronto Blue Jays (2008), and Cleveland Indians (2008). On December 1, 2006, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays signed Velandia to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. His first major league home run, which was a grand slam came on September 25, 2007. He started the 2008 season playing for the Syracuse Chiefs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. On May 7, his contract was purchased by the Blue Jays, and was added to the active roster. On May 16, he was designated for assignment and declined an outright assignment on May 19 becoming a free agent. Velandia signed with the Cleveland Indians on May 27, 2008, and was assigned to their Triple-A affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons. He was called up on June 12, to replace the injured Josh Barfield (who had been recently called up himself, for Asdrúbal Cabrera). Cabrera returned a month later, and Velandia was sent back to Buffalo. He was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays on August 30. On January 15, 2009, Velandia signed a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. Velandia was the captain of Tiburones de La Guaira in the Venezuelan Winter League until his retirement of active duty in January 2010. After working for the Philadelphia Phillies as assistant minor league field coordinator, he was announced as an assistant coach for the Philadelphia Phillies upon former manager Ryne Sandberg's resignation on June 26, 2015.
