CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Andres Galarraga has beaten cancer for a second time and is hoping to get back to the major leagues.
Galarraga said Tuesday that he recently underwent two three-week periods of chemotherapy and was hospitalized for 23 days for additional treatment for
the same non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that sidelined him in 1999 when he was with the Atlanta Braves.
I wasn't aware he was being treated again but am sure glad to hear he has beat it again. Galarraga is a class act and MLB is better with him in the
game, even if he's just a utility player. His leadership in the clubhouse is top-notch. I look forward to seeing him in uniform again.
