  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Allows three runs in win

    Bassitt (6-5) earned the win against the Marlins on Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out five and walking none over seven innings.

    Bassitt threw 62 of 90 pitches for strikes in Saturday's game. He allowed three runs thanks to home runs from Jesus Sanchez and Bryan De La Cruz. The righty now has three quality starts in a row after a rough outing against the Padres. Even though he gave up three runs, Bassitt lowered his ERA to 4.01 on the season.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Fans nine in loss

    Bassitt (5-5) took the loss Sunday against Miami, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out nine in 6.1 innings.

    Bassitt cruised through the first six innings, allowing just three singles and a walk while holding Miami scoreless. In the seventh, however, he loaded the bases with one out and all three baserunners came around to score after he was removed when Jerar Encarnacion smacked a grand slam. Since May 19, the veteran has struggled with a 5.80 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and seven homers allowed in 40.1 innings. He will likely face Miami again in his next start, next weekend.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Throws eight scoreless

    Bassitt (5-4) earned the win over the Brewers on Tuesday, allowing three hits and one walk over eight scoreless innings. He struck out seven.

    After a six-run hiccup in San Diego last week, Bassitt returned home to have his best start of the season so far, limiting Milwaukee to just a trio of singles. He has been much better at Citi Field -- his road ERA checks in north of 5.00 in his first season with the Mets. However, with a career-high strikeout rate, Bassitt may be able post better results away from home moving forward and further chip away at his ERA and WHIP.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Shelled by Padres on Wednesday

    Bassitt (4-4) lasted only 3.1 innings against San Diego on Wednesday, allowing seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and two walks to take the loss. He struck out six batters.

    Bassitt fell behind in the first inning and gave up an unearned run in the third, but the fourth inning was when things fell apart for him. The right-hander was hurt by an error behind him, but he also gave up three hits and a walk while retiring only one batter in the frame. This was Bassitt's shortest start of the season and marked the third outing during which he has given up at least five earned runs. His ERA swelled to 4.35 as a result of the rough appearance, which is on pace for his worst mark since he posted a 6.11 ERA across five games in 2016.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Takes loss in quality start

    Bassitt (4-3) took the loss during Friday's 6-1 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts in six innings.

    Bassitt made two mistakes in serving up homers to Cody Bellinger and Zach McKinstry to fall behind early, and New York was never able to recover. Despite the loss, the 32-year-old came away with some positives by firing a season-high 110 pitches and matching a season best with eight strikeouts. Bassitt will carry a 3.74 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into his next start, scheduled for midweek against San Diego.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Whiffs seven in quality start

    Bassitt didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 5-4 victory over Philadelphia, allowing one run on two hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in six innings.

    Bassitt encountered a bases-loaded jam with none out in the third inning but was able to escape allowing just one run and proceeded to retire the final 10 Phillies he faced. It was a nice rebound for the 33-year-old, who had surrendered 12 runs across 10.2 innings in his last two starts combined, and Bassitt has now permitted one run or fewer in six of his 10 turns. He'll carry a 3.66 ERA and 1.17 WHIP into a start projected to come next weekend against the Dodgers.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Hit hard in no-decision

    Bassitt didn't factor into the decision during Tuesday's 13-12 loss to San Francisco, allowing eight runs on eight hits and three walks with four strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Bassitt didn't have his stuff working Tuesday as he surrendered the bulk of the damage on a pair of Joc Pederson two-run shots and a Tommy La Stella three-run homer but was bailed out when New York rallied in the eighth inning. The 33-year-old's two worst outings have come against San Francisco, as he also permitted five runs in a loss April 20, though Bassitt has pitched well in his other seven starts with a 2.11 ERA and 1.03 WHIP compared to 3.91 and 1.21 marks on the season. He'll look to get back on track early next week against Washington.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Avoids arbitration with Mets

    Bassitt and the Mets agreed to a one-year, $8.8 million contract Saturday, avoiding arbitration, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Bassitt's contract includes a $19 million mutual option for 2023. Over his first eight starts in 2022, the right-hander has posted a 2.77 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 48.2 innings. With Max Scherzer (oblique), Jacob deGrom (shoulder) and Tylor Megill (biceps) all on the injured list, Bassitt will be particularly important for the Mets over the next few weeks.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Allows two homers in no decision

    Bassitt didn't factor into the decision after allowing four runs on nine hits and one walk across 6.1 innings during Thursday's 7-6 win over the Cardinals. He struck out three.

    Bassitt allowed solo shots to Juan Yepez and Paul Goldschmidt in the second and third innings respectively and was ultimately chased in the seventh after allowing two one-out baserunners. It wasn't the worst outing of the season for the right-hander, but his three strikeouts were a season low. Regardless, he still sports a 2.77 ERA with a 49:13 K:BB through his first eight starts (48.2 innings). His next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's matchup in San Francisco.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Fans eight in no-decision

    Bassitt did not factor in the decision against Seattle on Saturday, completing 5.2 innings and allowing one run on five hits and three walks while striking out eight.

    Bassitt found himself in trouble in the first inning, walking two batters and hitting another to load the bases. He managed to get out of that jam and kept the Mariners off the scoreboard through five frames before yielding a run in the sixth. He left with New York up 4-1, but the Mets' bullpen couldn't hold the lead, and Bassitt ended up with his first no-decision of the campaign. The right-hander has been great in his first season in New York, posting a 2.34 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 46:12 K:BB across 42.1 innings. He's slated to make his next start at home against St. Louis.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Strong start, win

    Bassitt (4-2) earned the victory in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies, allowing one run on five hits and a walk while striking out four in 5.2 innings in a 6-1 victory.

    After a shaky but scoreless first inning, Bassitt allowed a Jean Segura solo homer to lead off the second inning. Following that, he pretty much shut down the Phillies' lineup, and at one point he retired 11 straight batters. While the 33-year-old tossed a season-high 101 pitches, he fell one out shy of pitching six innings, something he'd achieved in every other outing this season. His next start will likely be next weekend against Seattle.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Fans eight in Monday's loss

    Bassitt (3-2) took the loss Monday, giving up three runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings as the Mets fell 5-2 to Atlanta. He struck out eight.

    The Mets staked Bassitt to an early 2-0 lead, but he couldn't make it stick as his team's bats went cold after the third inning. The right-hander fired 95 pitches (64 strikes) en route to his fourth quality start in five trips to the mound this season, and he has yet to work fewer than six innings in an outing, giving New York some much-needed stability. Bassitt will carry a 2.61 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and career-high 28.1 percent strikeout rate into his next start.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Blanks Cards in win No. 3

    Bassitt (3-1) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Cardinals. He struck out six.

    It wasn't the most efficient outing for Bassitt, as he hit a batter and left after throwing only 55 of 94 pitches for strikes, but he kept St. Louis off the board with some timely strikeouts and solid defense behind him. The 33-year-old has fanned at least six batters in all four of his starts this season, and his current 28.0 percent strikeout rate would be a career-best performance, as would Bassitt's 2.25 ERA and 0.92 WHIP.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Struggles in first loss

    Bassitt (2-1) took the loss against San Francisco on Wednesday, allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings.

    Things started out poorly for Bassitt in the contest as the Giants collected three first-inning runs. They tacked on additional runs in the second and fourth frames to tag the right-hander with his first loss of the campaign. Coming into Wednesday, Bassitt had allowed only one run over his first 12 innings with the Mets, so Wednesday's hiccup is no reason to lose faith in him. He'll carry a 3.00 ERA and 20:4 K:BB into his next start, which lines up to take place in St. Louis on Tuesday.
