Chris Bootcheck holds the distinction of being one of the very few major leaguers placed on the disabled list after a brawl. On May 2, 2006 he injured his hamstring running in from the bullpen to participate in a brawl playing for the Los Angeles Angels against the Oakland A's.
He returned to the majors leagues after a three-year absence for one game with the New York Yankees on June 14, 2013. Facing his old team the Angels, he gave up a run on two walks and two singles in his only inning of work.
