Yankees Designate Chris Bootcheck For Assignment

The Yankees announced that they have designated right-hander Chris Bootcheck for assignment.  That move, coupled with Mark Teixeria being placed on the DL, allowed the Bombers to recall right-hander Adam Warren and outfielder Zoilo Almonte.

Bootcheck saw just one inning in pinstripes this year, allowing two hits and one run against the Angels on Friday.  In 91 big league games, the 34-year-old owns a 6.55 ERA with 6.4 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9.

The Yankees promoted Bootcheck in advance of his late-June opt out and while his stay on the varsity squad was short lived, he pitched well for the club's Triple-A affiliate.  Bootcheck made 11 starts for Scranton Wilkes-Barre and had a 3.32 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9.
