He hit his fourth double of the season against the Nationals on Tuesday, and has 13 extra-base hits and 11 singles, which measures out to 54 percent of his hits going for extra bases.
"I've always been a guy who didn't trust his hands. I just didn't let myself see the ball in and let myself react," Barajas said of his recent success. "I guessed fastball and I get a breaking ball, and now I'm in a bad situation. So right now, I'm just relying on my eyes, and my hands are working pretty good."
Barajas has always been able to hit for power over his 12-year career, but his previous high for extra base hits in a season was 45 with the Rangers in 2005. That season, his 21 home runs and 24 doubles accounted for a career-high 43 percent of his hits.
