Biographical Information[edit]

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.

Bootcheck made his Nippon Pro Baseball debut on May 3, 2010. He allowed one run in the 9th inning against the Hiroshima Carp in a 3-0 loss for the Yokohama BayStars.

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.
