Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Role remains uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The A's haven't decided if Bassitt will work as a starter or reliever in 2018, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Bassitt worked his way back last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in May of 2016. While he initially was looking to return as a starter, a setback in his recovery forced him to finish the season in a relief role. It's possible the A's keep him in the bullpen to help preserve his arm, though that will depend on how Bassitt feels when he reports to camp.

Athletics' Eric Jokisch: Inks farm deal with A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokisch signed a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jokisch has been playing professional baseball since 2010 but has only logged 14.1 major-league innings during his eight-year career. He spent the 2017 season with Triple-A Reno of the Diamondbacks' organization, posting a pedestrian 4.21 ERA over 134.2 innings of work. Despite his lackluster resume, he'll get an opportunity to play his way onto an Athletics' roster that lacks reliable left-handed pitching depth.

Athletics' Simon Castro: Re-ups with A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castro agreed to a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Simon signed a minor-league deal with the A's last offseason and split his time between Triple-A Nashville and the majors in 2017. He was effective in the minors (3.32 ERA over 38 innings) but less so in the bigs (4.38 ERA over 37 innings). He could work his way on to the Opening Day roster with a strong spring training performance.

Athletics' Joey Wendle: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wendle was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Thursday, MLB.com reports.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Yusmeiro Petit, who was recently signed as a free agent. Wendle spent most of the 2017 season with Triple-A Nashville, compiling a .285/.327/.429 line with eight homers and 13 stolen bases in 118 games. He held his own during a September call-up, hitting .308/.357/.615 in eight games, but it apparently wasn't enough for the Athletics to keep him on the 40-man. He'll now run through waivers to determine his next landing spot.
