5. Placido Polanco (2010-2012) Three-year $18 million
Like Thome, Polanco returned to Philadelphia for a second stint replacing Pedro Feliz. Polanco, known for his defensive skills and ability to put the ball in play, was loved by Phillies fan. He contributed a lot to a team still primed for a deep playoff run. He kept third base under control while hitting .277 with a .325 on-base percentage.
