Galarraga signed a minor-league deal with the New York Mets in December after making his second successful return from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last season.
He had hoped to join the 400-home run club by finishing his career mainly as a pinch-hitter. He had three home runs and was batting .235 in 17 spring games.
Galarraga missed the 1999 season after he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, then hit .302 with 28 home runs and 100 RBIs with Atlanta in 2000.
The disease reoccurred in November 2003. He underwent surgery that month and had a stem cell transplant the following February.
