Bassitt (7-2) allowed two earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five across 5.2 innings, earning the win Sunday over the Royals.
Bassitt surrendered a solo home run by Andrew Benintendi in the third inning. He only gave up one other extra-base hit in the form of a double from Salvador Perez that came right after the home run. The 32-year-old lost his first two starts of the season, but he has been stellar since with a 3.43 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP with 91 strikeouts in 86.2 innings this year. He is 4-0 in his last five starts.
Bassitt (6-2) won Tuesday's 5-2 victory over Arizona, going seven innings and allowing two runs on four hits and a walk with six strikeouts.
It only took 88 pitches for Bassitt to get through seven frames as he allowed all five baserunners and both runs in the second and seventh innings, the other five being 1-2-3. The quality start was his eighth in his last 10 starts and Bassitt lowered his ERA to 3.44 with the successful outing.
Bassitt started Tuesday's 12-6 win over the Mariners, going four innings and allowing four runs on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.
Bassitt permitted the bulk of the damage in the third after allowing four straight hits following two outs to begin the inning but was bailed out after Oakland scored six in the seventh. Bassitt has been extremely consistent this season with no more than four runs allowed in any start. The fact that Tuesday's outing was his worst thus far speaks volumes to his performance.
Bassitt (5-2) shut out the Angels on Thursday, allowing two hits and a walk with nine strikeouts over nine innings in a win.
Bassitt was dominant throughout the game, throwing 70 of his 114 pitches for strikes. Only a ninth-inning Justin Upton double put the 32-year-old starter in a tough spot. Bassitt's been solid throughout the season, but this was the first time in 11 starts he's kept runs off the board. The right-hander owns a 3.21 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 74:16 K:BB across 70 innings. He'll look to keep up the good work in next week's road start in Seattle.
Bassitt (4-2) beat the Angels , 6-2 on Saturday, throwing 7.2 innings and allowing two runs on five hits and one walk with eight strikeouts.
Bassitt cruised through seven with a 6-0 lead but allowed two runs on three hits in the bottom of the eighth before being removed with two outs. He's averaged more than six innings per start this season with a 3.69 ERA and 16:73 K:BB ratio.
Bassitt yielded four runs on six hits and two walks over five innings in Sunday's win over the Twins. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
Most of the damage against Bassitt came on a Max Kepler three-run shot in the second inning. The 6-foot-5 right-hander gave up another run in the third but got through the fourth and fifth frames without too much of a threat. His season ERA jumped to 3.88 through 53.1 innings. Bassitt is lined up to face the Angels on the road next weekend.
Bassitt (3-2) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing two runs on three hits over seven innings in a 3-2 victory over the Red Sox. He struck out 10 without walking a batter.
It's the first time this season, and just the third time in his career, that Bassitt has fanned double-digit batters. The right-hander has reeled off five straight quality starts, and he'll take a 3.54 ERA and 53:12 K:BB through 48.1 innings into his next outing.
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.
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 (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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
