Signed catcher ROD BARAJAS to a minor-league contract with an invitation to Spring Training.
Ugh. Barajas is Todd Greene Lite, a catcher with just a little pop (11 dingers in 509 at-bats) undermined by negligible ability to walk or hit for average. Barajas does have a solid defensive reputation. If Gerald Laird doesn't prive he's ready for prime time, Barajas might actually make the active roster and appear in games. Again, ugh.
