Bassitt (7-4) picked up the win in Friday's 5-3 victory over the Twins, giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks over five innings while striking out two.
The right-hander wasn't exactly sharp, hitting two batters with pitches and throwing 63 of 94 pitches for strikes, but Bassitt still recorded his third win in his last four starts. He'll take a 3.96 ERA and 83:36 K:BB through 88.2 innings into his next outing Wednesday in Houston.
Bassitt tossed six scoreless frames to earn a victory against the White Sox on Saturday. He gave up four hits, walked two, and struck out six.

Although Bassitt has failed to complete six frames in any of his last five starts, he still owns a winning record and a respectable 3.80 ERA for the season. He'll look to build on this effort in his next start on the road against the Mariners.
Bassitt yielded three runs on four hits with four walks and two strikeouts across 3.1 innings during a no-decision against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

He is 4-3 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 65 strikeouts and 31 walks in 67.2 innings this season. Bassitt will pitch next at the Angels on Sunday.

With the loss, the right-hander falls to 0-3 against the Mariners in six appearances (five starts) this season.

Bassitt allowed three runs on six hits and one walk across six innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Astros. He recorded one strikeout.

Despite a recent drop in strikeouts (four over his last 11 frames), this was a nice bounce-back effort for Bassitt, whose ERA sits at a solid 3.42 for the season. He will look to build on this effort in his next scheduled start against the Rangers.
Bassitt (3-1) surrendered five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings Monday in a win over the Angels.

Luckily for him, the Athletics were able to put six runs on the board by the time he was lifted from the ballgame. The right-hander failed to get through four full innings his last time out, so even though he wasn't at his best, Bassitt did make it through five frames and emerge victorious.

While he went just five innings in two of his first three outings, he has combined to work 15.2 innings across his last two starts, allowing just three earned runs while striking out 16. He'll look to keep the strong results going in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday at Cleveland.

It was disappointing to see the 30-year-old unable to hold onto an early lead, but he is still 1-0 with a 2.12 ERA and 0.94 WHIP with 22 strikeouts in 17 frames. His next start will be Friday against the Indians at home.
Bassitt surrendered one run on three hits and struck out nine over seven innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Blue Jays.

Bassitt will continue to start until Marco Estrada (back) returns from the injured list.
Bassitt (1-0) got the win against the Rangers on Monday, scattering two hits over five innings while giving up no runs, striking out seven and walking four as the Athletics prevailed 6-1.
It was a successful first big-league start of 2019 for the right-hander, who was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas after Marco Estrada (lumbar strain) was forced to the injured list. Bassitt worked as both a reliever and a starter last season, so he could go back to a bullpen role at some point, but he made a strong case with this outing to remain the option in the rotation as long as Estrada is out.
Bassitt will make his first start of 2019 against the Rangers on Monday, Alex Espinoza of MLB.com reports.
Bassitt was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas last Wednesday in the wake of Marco Estrada's placement on the injured list with a lumbar strain. Bassitt has had his own health challenges already this season, as he spent time on the IL with a right shin contusion caused by a liner he'd taken in a Japan exhibition in March. The veteran made three rehab starts overall and worked up to 72 pitches in his final one, so manager Bob Melvin projects Bassitt as capable of going up to 90-95 pitches Monday.
Bassitt was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.
Bassitt will join the big club in place of Marco Estrada, who was sent to the injured list with a lumbar strain. According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, Bassit will tentatively slot into Estrada's place in the rotation, though that could change if he's needed out of the bullpen. He's made three minor-league appearances this season while working back from a lower-leg injury, posting a 3.27 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 16:2 K:BB in 11 innings during those outings. Bassitt worked as both a starter and reliever for the A's last season, notching a 3.02 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 7.7 K/9 in 47.2 innings.
Bassitt (lower leg) was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.
Bassitt had already been with Las Vegas while on a rehab assignment. He'll remain there as a normal member of the team for now but will have a shot to be called up when the Athletics next need a starting pitcher.
