    • Bassitt signed a one-year, $4.9 million deal with the A's on Friday to avoid arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The right-hander more than doubles his $2.25 million salary from 2020 (before being prorated for the shortened season) after delivering a 2.29 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 55:17 K:BB across 63 innings. Bassitt has a firm spot in the starting rotation for 2021 entering spring training.

    • Bassit allowed four runs on nine hits (including two homers) in his four-inning start in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros on Monday, striking out four while walking none. The outing was a far cry from the seven-inning, one-run performance Bassitt managed in Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series against the White Sox. The Astros had runners on base in each of Bassitt's innings, though it took until the fourth for them to break through, with a solo shot by Alex Bregman followed two batters later by a two-run homer from Carlos Correa. Bassitt threw 73 pitches, so it's conceivable he could pitch in some capacity on short rest in Game 5 on Friday, if necessary.

    • Bassitt earned the win over the White Sox on Wednesday in Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series. He allowed one run on six hits and one walk while striking out five over seven innings. Oakland needed a win to stay alive after Chicago took Game 1 on Tuesday, and Bassitt answered the call with yet another gem. Bassitt has now turned in three consecutive scoreless appearances and has a minuscule 0.27 ERA in his last five outings dating back to Sept. 7. The right-hander looks like a legitimate frontline starter for the A's.

    • Bassit did not factor into the decision during Friday's win despite holding the Mariners scoreless across five innings. He allowed five hits and no walks while striking out six. The 31-year-old was brilliant in what turned into a pitcher's duel. Luckily, the A's came through with the win in the 10th inning. It was just the fourth time this year that Bassit did not allow any runs or free passes. The right-hander finishes the 2020 regular season campaign with a 2.29 ERA, good for fourth lowest among American League starters.

    • Bassitt (5-2) allowed three hits and three walks over 6.2 scoreless innings in a win over the Giants on Friday. He struck out seven. This looked like a favorable spot for Bassitt, and he not only made his layup but provided fantasy managers with a slam dunk. With that, Bassitt lowered his ERA to 2.57, a top-10 mark among qualified starters. After rattling off three straight wins, Bassitt will face a tough test next week in a road start against the Dodgers.
