News: Dodgers Claim Rod Barajas off Waivers

The Los Angeles Dodgers have claimed Rod Barajas off waivers, and he will head to Los Angeles as a straight waiver claim.

To replace Barajas on the roster, the Mets have called up Jesus Feliciano.

So, the Mets get some salary relief as the Dodgers will pay the remainder of his contract, and this also likely means Josh Thole has been officially promoted to be the everyday catcher, since he’s been so solid both offensively and defensively and Henry Blanco can’t take the everyday load.

In 74 games with the Mets, Barajas hit .225 with 12 Home Runs and 34 RBI and recently was on the disabled list with a strained oblique muscle.
