  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Not a lock to start Game 3

    Blue Jays manager John Schneider said Tuesday that while Bassitt is probably the leading candidate to start a potential Game 3 of the AL Wild Card Series, he's not locked in, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Kevin Gausman will take the hill for Game 1 on Tuesday, while Jose Berrios gets the ball for Wednesday's Game 2. While Bassitt represents the logical choice to start Game 3, Schneider didn't rule out using the righty in relief in the first two games or perhaps taking a different approach to Game 3. Bassitt comes into the playoffs riding high, having struck out 12 over 7.2 scoreless frames in his final regular season start.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Tosses gem against Yankees

    Bassitt (16-8) earned the win Thursday, allowing five hits and one walk over 7.2 scoreless innings in a 6-0 win over the Yankees. He struck out 12.

    Bassitt closed out the 2023 regular season on a high note, and the 34-year-old tied his season high in strikeouts while lasting at least seven frames for the fourth time in six starts. Over that stretch (42.2 innings), Bassitt owns a 4-1 record with a 2.11 ERA and a 38:8 K:BB.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Cruises to 15th win

    Bassitt (15-8) earned the win Friday, allowing two runs on six hits and no walks over 6.2 innings against the Rays. He struck out eight.

    Bassitt tied his career high in wins, equaling his total with the Mets last year. The 34-year-old fully turned his season around after stumbling to a 5.18 ERA in April, and Bassitt sports a 3.74 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 174:58 K:BB over 192.1 innings this year. He is tentatively scheduled to make his last start of the regular season at home against the Yankees.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Allows two runs in no-decision

    Bassitt did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over seven innings against Boston. He struck out five.

    Bassitt got off to a strong start, retiring the first 11 batters he faced, but the Blue Jays failed to back him with any run support. The only two runs against him came via the long ball off the bat of Rafael Devers in the top of the sixth after the right-hander issued a walk to Wilyer Abreu to open the frame. Bassitt has now gone at least seven innings in three of his last four starts, posting an 18:7 K:BB over that stretch. However, he's also issued three walks in each of his last two outings.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Falls to Texas

    Bassitt (14-8) took the loss Monday, allowing five runs on nine hits and three walks over 5.1 innings against the Rangers. He struck out three.

    Bassitt had gone eight innings in each of his last two starts, allowing just one run in that span. He'd struggle Monday against the Rangers, however, allowing five runs on nine hits, the most he's surrendered in a start since June 13. Overall, the 34-year-old Bassitt sports a 3.83 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and 161:55 K:BB across 30 starts (178.2 innings) this season. He'll look to bounce back in his next outing, currently lined up for this weekend against the Red Sox.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Strong versus former team

    Bassitt (14-7) allowed a run on seven hits and struck out seven over eight innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Athletics.

    Bassitt and Ken Waldichuk engaged in a pitchers' duel for six innings before Toronto's bats found success against Oakland's bullpen. This was Bassitt's second eight-inning start in a row after he blanked the Nationals his last time out. The right-hander is now at a 3.69 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 158:52 K:BB through 173.1 innings over 29 starts this year. He'll look to carry some momentum into a more challenging home start versus the Rangers next week.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Blanks Washington in win

    Bassitt (13-7) earned the win Wednesday, allowing three hits and a walk over eight scoreless innings against Washington. He struck out three.

    It was a rebound performance from Bassitt after he was tagged for four runs over 5.2 innings in a loss to Cleveland in his prior start. The 34-year-old right-hander had been somewhat inconsistent recently, pitching to a 5.09 ERA in his previous three starts coming into Wednesday (17.2 innings). Overall, Bassitt sports a 3.81 ERA with a 1.19 WHIP and 151:52 K:BB across 28 starts (165.1 innings) this season. He's currently in line for a road matchup with the A's in his next start.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Hit hard in loss

    Bassitt (12-7) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out five.

    The veteran righty gave up a lot of hard contact -- five of the seven hits off Bassitt went for extra bases, including homers by Bo Naylor and Ramon Laureano. It's the first time Bassitt's served up multiple homers in an outing since June 13, but he's been taken deep at least once in six straight starts, posting a 4.29 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 36:14 K:BB through 35.2 innings over that stretch. He'll try to keep the ball in the park in his next trip to the mound, which is likely to come at home next week against the Nationals.
