Rod Barajas, master of the first impression

Rod Barajas always hits well with a new team -- for a short time.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Rod Barajas's career OPS -- .697

Barajas's OPS, through his first [x] plate appearances (PAs) with a new team:

Diamondbacks, 1999, 18 PAs --.794

Rangers, 2004, 34 PAs -- .990

Phillies, 2007, 40 PAs -- .936

Blue Jays, 2008, 20 PAs -- .929

Mets, 2010, 18 PAs -- .984

Dodgers, 2010, 30 PAs -- 1.458

The plate appearance threshold is arbitrary, but whatever. I'd bet he has a firm handshake, makes effective eye contact, and nails job interviews.
