Athletics SP Chris Bassitt remains winless
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(12:39 am ET) Athletics starter Chris Bassitt had a shaky first inning, allowing three runs, and despite pitching well for the remainder of his outing, wound up on the losing end of a 3-1 defeat Thursday.
Bassitt went seven innings, scattering six hits while striking out six and walking just one in what was the best of his five starts this season. However, Bassitt's record dropped to 0-4.
Athletics' Chris Bassitt takes tough-luck loss on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/25/15) Athletics right-hander Chris Bassitt was solid in his start against the Giants on Saturday, but he was on the wrong end of a duel with Madison Bumgarner. Bassitt, making his fourth start of the year, allowed two runs on five hits over six innings of work. He struck out four and walked no one in the 2-1 loss.
Bassitt (0-3) gave up a solo home run to Bumgarner in the third inning to put the A's down 1-0 early. His offense was able to tie the game in the next inning, but Bassitt allowed the final run to score in the sixth.
Bassitt is searching for his first win of the season, despite a 2.94 ERA.
Athletics recall Chris Bassitt; option Angel Castro to Triple-A
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/25/15) The Athletics recalled pitcher Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville, and in a corresponding move optioned Angel Castro down to Nashville on Saturday, the team announced.
Bassit is slated to start on Saturday against the Giants. He has a 2.93 ERA in 27 2/3 innings this season.
Castro, who has a 2.25 ERA in four innings of relief this season, was recalled from Triple-A on Friday. He tossed an inning of relief against the Giants, allowing two hits and striking out a batter.
Melvin giving new Athletics starter Chris Bassitt plenty of rope
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/24/15) Bob Melvin has made it clear that new Athletics starter Chris Bassitt is not about to lose his spot in the rotation anytime soon. He believes that will take the pressure off.
Bassitt is set to start Saturday against San Francisco.
The right-hander filled in admirably in late June and early July. He lost twice in three starts, but allowed just five runs in 17 innings. Now he's back and Melvin hopes the knowledge of being secure in the rotation - at least for now - will prove beneficial.
"It's a chance for him to get settled," Melvin told Inside the A's. "It's difficult when you are called up for one start. There's a little added pressure without the secure feeling that, 'I'm going to make my next start' isn't there. ... He's done everything you can to give himself an opportunity to pitch every fifth day, and at this point in time it looks like he's going to be up here for a while."
Athletics recall Dan Otero, option Chris Bassitt
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/12/15) The Athletics recalled RHP Dan Otero from Triple-A Nashville, the team announced on Sunday.
Otero was 1-0 with a 1.08 ERA in nine appearances at Nashville. In a previous stint with the A's this year, he was 2-3 with a 6.29 ERA.
To make room on the roster, the A's optioned RHP Chris Bassitt to Nashville.
Bassitt is 0-2 with a 2.93 ERA in three starts for the A's. Manager Bob Melvin said he would return to the A's rotation on July 25, per the SF Chronicle.
