Phillies to sign Barajas

The Phanatic has learned the Philadelphia Phillies will sign catcher Rod Barajas.

MLB.com's Ken Mandel discusses the deal, stating that GM Pat Gillick likely will not have a comment until the catcher passes a physical. The move would take pressure off Carlos Ruiz behind the plate and free up Chris Coste to play the role of first pinch-hitter and emergency infielder.

Full analysis from The Phanatic when the deal becomes official.
