Mets castoff Rod Barajas has record-setting Dodgers debut

Aug 25, 2010, 10:14 AM EDT

Claimed off waivers by the Dodgers earlier this week, Rod Barajas went 3-for-4 with a homer and two doubles last night to become the first player to smack three extra-base hits in his debut since the team moved to Los Angeles.
Prior to being put on waivers Barajas had a grand total of three extra-base hits in his last 31 games and 105 plate appearances for the Mets, and as Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. notes Dodgers backstops Brad Ausmus and A.J. Ellis have combined for three extra-base hits in 133 plate appearances this year.
Barajas should see plenty of playing time down the stretch with Russell Martin out for the year, but it’ll be all downhill from here for the career .237/.282/.408 hitter.

    Ausmus is 57 years old. He’s still playing?

    I second that, only less sarcastically. LOL @ the Mets!

    More like ROTFLMFAO at the Mets….. And I’m a Mets fan. Biggest disaster in Queens since Conners lost 1-2-1 to Courier 20 years ago.

    This guy just couldn’t hack it in New York. Now that he’s no longer in a bug city, he’ll perform better.
