Rodrigo Richard Barajas (born September 5, 1975) is a Major League Baseball catcher, who is currently with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He came up to the majors with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 1999. Barajas has also played with the Mexico national baseball team.

Barajas was originally signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks as an amateur free agent on December 23, 1996. He was immediately sent to the minor leagues. He played for the Lethbridge Black Diamonds of the Pioneer League (Rk), the lowest level of the minors as a rookie. He had a nice season in 1996 there, hitting .337 in 51 games. He played his way to the top of the minor leagues in the Diamondbacks' system.

Barajas made his Major League debut for the Diamondbacks on September 25, 1999 against the San Francisco Giants. He was hitless in three at-bats in that game. He hit his first career home run in the last game of the season on October 3 against the San Diego Padres, a line-drive to left-center field off of Heath Murray. He played in a total of 10 games with the Diamondbacks in 1999 and 2000. He homered twice and did not commit a single error while playing catcher.
