Bootcheck Clears Waivers, Re-Signs With Yankees

Right-hander Chris Bootcheck has cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Yankees on Tuesday, MLBTR's Chris Cotillo has learned. Instead of accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Bootcheck elected free agency and immediately re-signed with the Yankees on a minor league deal.

The new deal includes an August 15th opt-out date if he is not in the major leagues, and he will report to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he has posted a 3.32 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in 11 starts on the season.  In 91 career big league games with the Angels and Pirates, the 34-year old has a 6.55 ERA with 6.4 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9.
