Rod Barajas has been given the day off, could this be a good thing for Scott Richmond in tonight's start vs the Tampa Rays?

This is just a minor stat with a small sample but Richmond has a 5.00 K/BB ratio (15 vs 3) when Raul Chavez is catching. When Barajas is behind the plate his ratio is 2.47. 

I'll be interested in seeing whether or not this trend continues as Richmond faces off in a pitchers dual against Matt Garza.
