  • 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.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Cruises to second win

    Bassitt improved to 2-0 on the season Friday by holding the Diamondbacks to just one run on two hits over six innings, striking out six and walking two.

    Bassitt allowed a pair of baserunners in the first but faced just two more than the minimum over the next five frames. He gave up a leadoff homer to Daulton Varsho in the top of the sixth, but all that accomplished was cutting the Mets' lead to four. Bassitt hasn't faced the toughest opponents to start the season, as he took on the Nationals in his season debut, but he's done everything the Mets could ask for. Between the two outings, he's allowed a single run on five hits in 12 innings of work, striking out 14 while walking three. He'll face a tougher task next week against the Giants.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Fans eight in win

    Bassitt (1-0) picked up the win Saturday, giving up three hits and a walk over six scoreless innings in a 5-0 victory over the Nationals. He struck out eight.

    It was a tremendous Mets debut for the veteran right-hander, who tossed 66 of 93 pitches for strikes and got all the offensive support he needed on a Pete Alonso grand slam in the fifth inning. Bassitt lines up for another enticing matchup next weekend at home against an Arizona squad that ranked 25th in the league in runs last season.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Traded to Mets

    Bassitt was sent from the Athletics to the Mets in exchange for J.T. Ginn and Adam Oller on Saturday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    The 33-year-old righty, who has just one year remaining on his contract, has taken big steps forward over the last two seasons, posting a combined 2.90 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 38 starts. Those numbers were helped by the fact the he pitched half his games in Oakland, but he's now on his way to another pitcher-friendly park. He's also now found himself on one of the strongest rosters in the league, which should boost his chances of racking up wins.
