Botello signed a Project-40 contract with Major League Soccer in 1997, and was assigned to the Los Angeles Galaxy. He played in 10 MLS games for Galaxy in his three years with the team, but never truly established himself as a regular starter, and was waived at the end of the 1999 season. After being released by Galaxy, Botello played for Orange County Waves in the old A-League, and for Inter Tijuana in Mexico, before retiring from top flight competitive soccer in the mid-2000s. He went on to play for the L.A. Blues team in various amateur leagues in the Los Angeles area, and won several local cups and leagues between 2005 and 2009.
Botello worked a coach for Southern California youth soccer organization Legends FC, alongside fellow ex-Galaxy player Alex Bengard. He was hired as head coach of the Hollywood United Hitmen in the USL Premier Development League in 2010.
