    Rodrigo Richard Barajas (born September 5, 1975 in Ontario, California) is a catcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. He came up to the majors with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 1999. Before 2004, Barajas had never played more than 80 games in a season and had never hit more than 3 home runs in a season and had never hit more than .234 in a full season. In 2004 the Rangers invited him to spring training and he won the backup catcher's job. After starting catcher Gerald Laird was sidelined with a sprained thumb, Barajas took over the starting job. At the end of the season, he established career highs in games played (108), home runs (15), RBIs (58), and batting average (.249). Barajas can also play first base if needed, compiling 4 career games there as a defensive replacement, as of July 2005.
