Timothy James ("Tim") Salmon (born August 24, 1968 in Long Beach, California) is a right fielder/designated hitter in Major League Baseball who has played his entire career with the Angels teams since 1992. He bats and throws right handed.

Since being named the American League's Rookie of the Year in 1993, Salmon has become a favorite of the Angels organization and a household name among the team's fans. An Angel legend, Salmon was a crucial part of the Angels' playoff and World Series run in 2002, hitting a key home run in Game Two of the World Series against the San Francisco Giants.

Salmon, who was sidelined for all of the 2005 season, is recovering from left knee and right rotator cuff surgery. He appeared in 60 games for the Angels in 2004. He will be a free agent following the 2005 season, but has indicated he wants to return to the Angels in 2006.

After his 14th season with Anaheim, Salmon is a career .283 hitter with 290 home runs and 989 RBI in 1596 games.
