Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Goes seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt completed seven innings against Toronto on Wednesday, allowing two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out seven. He did not factor in the decision.

The right-hander looked to be in line for a win when he departed after the seventh inning with Oakland up by a run. However, the bullpen couldn't fend off Toronto's bats, as the Blue Jays put up five runs in the eighth to keep Bassitt out of the win column. Still, it was another strong outing for the veteran hurler, who has now notched four straight quality starts, during which he has racked up a 32:4 K:BB across 25 innings. He'll carry a 3.70 overall ERA into his next start, which is currently lined up to come in Boston at the beginning of next week.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Another big strikeout performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out nine across six innings Thursday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

Bassitt was touched up for one run in both the first and fifth innings, but he otherwise dominated the Rays. Not known for his strikeout upside, Bassitt has now punched out 25 batters across his last 18 innings while allowing only six earned runs. For the season, Bassitt has maintained a 3.93 ERA with a 36:12 K:BB across 34.1 frames.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Fans eight in win Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (2-2) allowed two earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out eight across six innings, earning the win Saturday against the Orioles.

Bassitt gave up two runs in his third straight start Saturday. His last two starts are nearly identical, as he allowed two runs in six innings while striking out eight. That is a quality stat line if the 32-year-old can keep it up. However, he struggled more in his first three starts, surrendering nine earned runs in 16.1 innings with 11 strikeouts and eight walks.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Whiffs eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt allowed two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings in Sunday's win over Detroit. He struck out eight and did not factor in the decision.

Bassitt got himself in trouble right out of the gate Sunday, loading the bases with one out in the first inning. He managed to escape the threat unscathed and retired 10 straight Tigers. The 32-year-old then coughed up a two-run single to Harold Castro in the sixth. He was in line for a loss before Sean Murphy tied the game with a solo shot in the eighth and Oakland eventually walked off. Bassitt will carry a 4.43 ERA into Saturday's contest in Baltimore.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Picks up win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (1-2) allowed two runs on two hits and five walks over five innings against the Diamondbacks on Monday, striking out four and garnering his first win of the season.

Bassitt surrendered both of his runs in the third inning after issuing back-to-back walks and allowing both baserunners to score via a single and sac fly. The five free passes were the most he's allowed in a game since May of 2019, and he's come out of the gates with an 11:8 K:BB in his first three outings of the year. The positives from Monday are that he only allowed two hits and was able to keep the Diamondbacks off the scoreboard for the majority of his start. He'll look to show better control when he makes his next start against the Tigers on Sunday.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Takes loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (0-2) gave up four runs on nine hits and one walk across six innings to take the loss against the Dodgers on Tuesday. He struck out four.

Bassitt got up to six innings and 102 pitches in his second start of the season, but the right-hander yielded nine hits -- including two home runs -- to suffer his second straight loss. Most of the damage against Bassitt came in the third inning, when a pair of Dodgers homers resulted in three runs. The 32-year-old hasn't been a disaster by any means at the start of the campaign, but he hasn't yet pitched well enough to provide hope that he can approach last season's career-best 2.29 ERA. He'll look for his first win in his next start, currently scheduled for Monday at Arizona.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Struggles in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings in a loss to the Astros on Thursday.

Bassitt struggled Thursday due to problems with his command while leaving two runners on base upon being pulled. The righty had a career year in 2020, recording a 2.29 ERA and 3.95 FIP. The 32-year-old only threw 68 pitches and we can expect his pitch-count to rise as the season progresses.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Named Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt was named the Athletics' Opening Day starter Thursday, so he'll get the nod against the Astros on April 1, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Bassitt's 2.29 ERA last season may not have been remotely supported by his 3.59 FIP or 4.49 xFIP, but he'll get the honor nonetheless. He beat out Frankie Montas, who struggled to a 5.60 ERA last season, as well as the talented but inexperienced Jesus Luzardo. Bassitt will be the team's fourth Opening Day starter in the last four years and the 15th in the last 17 seasons.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Breezes through third turn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt fired 3.2 scoreless innings in a Cactus League win over the Angels on Saturday, allowing a hit and two walks while recording five strikeouts.

Bassitt picked up his second win of spring with another stellar outing, his second consecutive with five strikeouts across a 3.2-inning workload. The right-hander now has a 1.74 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and .179 BAA across three Cactus League starts, ramping up in fine fashion for his projected No. 3 starter role in the coming season.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Misses bats in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt allowed an earned run on four hits across 3.2 innings in a Cactus League loss to Cleveland on Monday. He struck out five.

Bassitt lowered his spring ERA to an impressive 2.70 with the strong outing, one which Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports was marred only by some poor location on the slider with which Bassitt has been experimenting this spring. "I just didn't have the slider today," Bassitt said. "I gave up the first double -- which I thought was going to be a home run -- on it. I was trying it, but it was not good today."

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Impressive in first action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt allowed an earned run on two hits and recorded two strikeouts across three innings in a Cactus League win over the Brewers on Wednesday,

The right-hander was reasonably sharp in his first taste of game action this spring, which is certainly encouraging, considering Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports that Bassitt is a potential Opening Day starter for the Athletics if Frankie Montas is unable to ramp up sufficiently after a delayed start to spring training due to a COVID-19 infection. Bassitt has produced a combined 15-7 record, 3.35 ERA and 1.18 WHIP across 207 innings in 39 appearances (36 starts) over the last two seasons.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Struggles through four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Keeps A's in it with win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Six shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Improves to 5-2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 13, 2020 12:52 PM
Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Six strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (4-2) allowed one run on eight hits and two walks while striking out eight across six innings to earn the win in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rangers.

Bassitt didn't allow a run until Joey Gallo took him deep in the sixth inning. Otherwise, he dominated the Rangers lineup to generate a season-best eight strikeouts that were backed by 17 called strikes and 13 swinging strikes across 100 total pitches. He has given up just one run across his last two starts (15 innings), improving his ERA to 2.92 across 49.1 frames, and he's projected to take the mound again Friday against the Giants.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Tosses seven scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (3-2) earned the win Monday with seven scoreless innings versus the Astros. He allowed seven hits and struck out four.

Bassitt was a little generous with the hits, but all seven were singles and they ultimately didn't hurt his performance. The right-hander struggled in his last outing against the Astros, so Monday's outing was an encouraging improvement. Overall, Bassitt has a 3.12 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 34 strikeouts across 43.1 innings this season. His next start is expected to be Friday as part of a doubleheader versus the Rangers.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Shaky in Saturday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (2-2) took the loss in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Astros, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks over three-plus innings. He struck out two.

Two of the hits off Bassitt left the yard, accounting for all the damage against him and all the Houston offense in the matinee, and the blasts inflated his ERA to 3.72. The right-hander threw 35 of 62 pitches for strikes before getting chased from what was his shortest outing of the year. He'll look to rebound in his next start Thursday in Seattle.

August 28, 2020 11:52 PM
Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Astros, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Bassitt's scheduled start Friday was postponed, but he'll start as part of a twin bill Saturday instead. Frankie Montas will take the mound for the Athletics in Game 1.
