Pirates Sign Rod Barajas


A few minutes ago Jennifer Langosch announced that the Pirates have signed veteran catcher Rod Barajas. The Pirates reportedly signed a one-year deal with him with a club-option for 2013. Not sure for how much yet. Rod Barajas is going into his 14th season and is 36 years old. He is a lifetime, .238 hitter with 125 career dingers. However, its clear that his best days are behind him.

 

It think this a Benito Santiago signing and hope they didn't sign him for much. Personally I like the Fort better and think he has more upside and can bring to the table everything Barajas has at this age and a little more. Sure Barajas is a nice insurance policy but I think if this is all the Pirates are doing to address their catching situation, I'm content just sticking with McKenry and seeing what he can do in his second year.
