The Big Cat is back in the big leagues. The Anaheim Angels purchased the contract of 43-year-old Andres Galarraga from Triple-A Salt Lake of the Pacific Coast League on Wednesday.
 

They had signed him to a minor league contract Aug. 4.

Galarraga appeared in 25 games with the Stingers, batting .304 with four homers and 19 RBIs.

He was diagnosed with a recurrence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last November, which caused him to miss the entire 1999 season. He underwent surgery in November and had a stem cell transplant in February.

Galarraga, who made his big league debut with the Montreal Expos in 1985, hit .301 with 12 homers and 42 RBIs in 110 games with the San Francisco Giants last season. He has a career average of .288 with 398 homers and 1,423 RBIs in 2,250 games.

It's good to see "The Big Cat" back in a uniform. this guy is a real class act and a player any team should be happy to have in it's lineup. while he may not be as fast as he used to be, he can still hit for power. not to mention his battles with cancer, and coming back successfully, a fine player that i would love to have my children look to as a role model. great to see him back.
