Dodgers acquire catcher Rod Barajas from Mets

Aug 22, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News is reporting that the Dodgers have acquired catcher Rod Barajas from the Mets for cash. 

The Mets already have two other catchers on their active 25-man roster and are out of playoff contention.  The Dodgers don’t have much of a shot either, but they’re without Russell Martin for the rest of the season due to a hip injury and were in need of a reliable option.  A.J. Ellis and Brad Ausmus have been splitting time behind the plate in Los Angeles and hardly producing.

Barajas, 34, has a poor .225/.263/.414 batting line in 74 games this season but he has launched 12 home runs and collected 34 RBI.  He will be a free agent at the end of this season.

    “The Mets…are out of playoff contention. The Dodgers don’t have much of a shot either…”
    The Mets (62-62) are out of the playoff chase. The Dodgers (63-62) are still alive. that’s pretty convenient to make your anti-Mets point, no, Drew? they are pretty much the same team, with absolutely no effing chance to make the playoffs. just say it objectively. you’re not Craig.
