The Venezuelan righthander will probably always be remembered most for the night of June 2, 2010 when he was robbed of a perfect game by umpire Jim Joyce on a bad call with two outs in the ninth while pitching for Detroit. He scuffled at the big league level since then and was signed as a free agent by the Astros in May of 2012 then promoted to the majors after the trade of Wandy Rodriguez to Pittsburgh.

Galarraga was a disappointing 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA in five starts with Houston before he was released.
