Padres add Rod Barajas as minor league manager

The San Diego Padres have signed Rod Barajas as the manager of their rookie-level team in the Arizona League.

Barajas, 38, was a solid backstop for 14 seasons playing as recently as 2012 with Pittsburgh. If this is the end of the road for Barajas he will end his career with a .235/.284/.407 line with 136 home runs and 480 RBI.

Barajas was not mentioned at all last season after Arizona dropped him at the end of spring training. His playing days are over.
