Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Grabs seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Throws six scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

This was a nice way for Bassitt to bounce back after yielding six runs in his last outing before the break. Bassitt is 6-4 with a 3.98 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 81 strikeouts in 83.2 innings this season. The 30-year-old will make his next start Friday in Minnesota.

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

Bassitt (5-4) pitched 4.1 innings in a loss Saturday, allowing six runs on seven hits while striking out three against the Mariners.

Bassitt did well for the first three innings, but he allowed two home runs in the fourth and got into more trouble in the fifth before getting replaced by Wei-Chung Wang. Bassitt has only posted two quality starts over his last 10 outings. The right-hander has a 4.29 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 77.2 innings this season. His next start is expected to come at home against the White Sox.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Strikes out seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (5-3) struck out seven and allowed two runs on five hits and one walk across 5.2 innings to earn the win over the Angels on Sunday.

Bassitt cruised through the first five innings, with the only real damage to his ledger coming on a solo home run from Shohei Ohtani in the fourth. He ran into a bit of trouble in the sixth, allowing a run on three hits before he was pulled with two outs. 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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Fails to last five frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

If he had been able to go five innings, Bassitt likely would have won his second straight start because the Athletics held a sizable lead at that point, but instead, he needed 94 pitches to record just 10 outs. Walks have been a real issue for Bassitt lately, as he has handed out 11 free passes in his last 14.2 innings. 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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Falls short of quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (4-3) earned the win Wednesday versus the Orioles while allowing two runs on two hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out six.

Bassitt didn't allow a hit through the first five frames Wednesday, but he buckled in the sixth when the Orioles rallied for two runs on two hits and three walks. It's the third straight outing the 30-year-old has fallen one out short of a quality start, though he did receive the win this time around. Bassitt has a 3.64 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 63:27 K:BB through 64.1 innings and lines up to start Tuesday at St. Louis.

June 15, 2019 05:32 PM
Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Charged with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (3-3) took the loss Friday against the Mariners after allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and four walks while striking out four through 5.2 innings.

Bassitt started the fourth inning with a four-pitch walk and it all went downhill from there. He allowed three consecutive hits including a two-run double to J.P. Crawford and a sacrifice fly to Dee Gordon to tack on a pair of runs and give the Mariners the lead for good. With the loss, the right-hander falls to 0-3 against the Mariners in six appearances (five starts) this season. Bassitt will carry a 3.68 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 57:24 K:BB into a Wednesday showdown against Baltimore.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Saddled with second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (3-2) took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rangers, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings while striking out two as the A's fell 3-1.

The right-hander got lifted after 107 pitches (66 strikes), coming up one out short of his fifth quality start of the season. Bassitt will take a 3.57 ERA and 53:20 K:BB through 53 innings into his next outing Friday, at home against the Mariners.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Starting nightcap of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rangers.

Paul Blackburn was originally expected to start Saturday night, but he'll take the hill in the matinee instead. That will set Bassitt up for the nightcap, when he'll look to build on the 3-1 record, 3.42 ERA and 1.14 WHIP he's generated this season across 47.1 innings.

June 2, 2019 10:48 PM
Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Takes no-decision in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bassitt allowed a run in the first inning and was perhaps unlucky to be saddled with two more runs on a play that involved an error in the fifth, but he still came away with a quality start before the Athletics lost in extra innings. 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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Picks up win despite poor showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bassitt yielded a run in the second inning, two in the fourth and two more in the sixth prior to exiting the contest. 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. He owns a 3.27 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 47 punchouts over 41.1 innings this season.

May 22, 2019 02:52 PM
Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Fails to finish four frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt allowed three runs on three hits and six walks across 3.2 innings during Tuesday's win over the Indians. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

Bassitt's command was all over the place as the six walks eclipsed his total from his previous four starts combined, and he ended up throwing only 47 of his 88 pitches for strikes. It's a stark contrast for the 30-year-old after he covered 15.2 innings over his last two outings. Bassitt still has a 2.48 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 44:15 K:BB across 36.1 innings, and he'll look for a rebound performance Monday versus the Angels.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Eight strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (2-1) allowed four hits and two walks while striking out seven across eight shutout innings to earn the win Thursday against the Tigers.

Bassitt was given a six-run lead in the third inning but ultimately didn't need it while managing to hold the Tigers to just one extra-base hit across his eight innings of work. He stayed out of trouble by recording 16 of his 24 outs via either groundball or strikeout. 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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Strong showing in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (1-1) allowed three earned runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out nine and walking one across 7.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Reds.

Bassitt allowed two home runs early -- one each in the first and third inning -- but held the Reds to just two hits across his last 4.2 frames. He wasn't particularly dominant -- he generated only 10 swinging strikes -- but kept the ball on the ground and required only 93 pitches to record his 23 outs. Bassitt continues to pitch well, racking up a 0.97 WHIP and 2.55 ERA across his first four starts of the season. He'll look to keep that going in his next outing, likely to come Thursday at Detroit.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Gives up two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt allowed three runs on five hits with six strikeouts and two walks in a no-decision against the Pirates on Saturday.

The Athletics spotted Bassitt a three-run lead, but he coughed that up by allowing two home runs to Josh Bell. He then left with a one-run lead, but the bullpen gave up three runs in the loss. 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.

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

Bassitt surrendered one run on three hits and struck out nine over seven innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Blue Jays.

Bassitt's lone run allowed came in the first inning on a solo homer, but he'd settle down to toss six scoreless frames to close out his start. The 30-year-old right-hander has been impressive in each of his first two big-league starts, as he's given up just one run over 12 innings. Bassitt will continue to start until Marco Estrada (back) returns from the injured list.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Wins first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Set for '19 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
