Top Chris Bassitt News

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Heads to Toronto

    The Blue Jays signed Bassitt to a three-year, $63 million contract Monday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    The righty will be a valuable addition to the middle of Toronto's already-strong starting rotation. Bassitt had a 3.42 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 167:49 K:BB in 181.2 innings with the Mets in 2022, numbers which fully merit the roughly $21 million AAV on this new contract. He joins a remarkably tough division in the AL East, but the NL East was no slouch, either, so it shouldn't change his 2023 outlook too drastically.

  • Chris Bassitt: Declines qualifying offer

    Bassitt will decline the $19.65 million qualifying offer that was extended by the Mets on Thursday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The veteran right-hander recently declined his portion of the $19 million mutual option for 2023, so it's hardly a surprise he also won't accept the qualifying offer. Bassitt will look for a mult-year deal in free agency after he finished last season with a 3.42 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 167:49 K:BB across 181.2 innings. The qualifying offer could affect his market price, since whichever team signs him will now need to give up a draft pick as compensation.

  • Chris Bassitt: Passing on $19M option

    Bassitt informed the Mets on Sunday that he will decline his $19 million mutual option for 2023, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The Mets would have been happy to welcome Bassitt back at that $19 million salary figure, but the 33-year-old right-hander shouldn't have much trouble securing a multi-year deal at a higher annual average value following a strong season in New York. In his 30 starts with the Mets spanning 181.2 innings, Bassitt delivered a 3.42 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 167:49 K:BB.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Rough close to regular season

    Bassitt (15-9) took the loss during Sunday's 5-3 defeat to Atlanta, allowing four runs on three hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 2.2 innings.

    Bassitt surrendered a Dansby Swanson solo shot in the first inning and navigated a clean second before encountering trouble in the third, loading the bases with two out then permitting a walk and single to prompt his removal. The short outing was the 33-year-old's second in his last four turns, and he's compiled a middling 4.86 ERA in 20.1 innings during the stretch. He concludes the campaign with a 3.42 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 167 strikeouts in a career-high 181.2 innings across 30 starts.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Stymies former club

    Bassitt (15-8) earned the win during Friday's 9-2 victory over Oakland, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk with two strikeouts in eight innings.

    After putting two runners on in the first inning, Bassitt faced the minimum through the next five frames until permitting single runs in the seventh and eighth once the game was well in hand. The 33-year-old recorded only two strikeouts for the second time in three starts, though he's now won eight of his last 10 turns -- pitching to a 2.25 ERA across 64 innings during the stretch. Bassitt's 15 wins ranks sixth in MLB and he'll look to add to that total next weekend in Atlanta.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Sharp in Saturday's win

    Bassitt (14-8) earned the win Saturday over the Pirates, allowing three hits, two walks and a hit batter while striking out eight over six scoreless innings.

    Bassitt gave the Pirates very little to work with, allowing just three of the six baserunners he allowed to get into scoring position. Over his previous five outings, Bassitt had yielded 14 runs in 30 innings in a fairly average stretch of pitching. He now has a 3.32 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 163:45 K:BB through 171 innings across a career-high 28 starts after Saturday's strong outing. The 33-year-old is projected for a road start against his former team in Oakland next week.

  • Mets' Chris Bassitt: Mauled by Cubs on Monday

    Bassitt (13-8) allowed five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two batters over 3.2 innings to take the loss against the Cubs on Monday.

    Bassitt got off to a strong start by retiring Chicago in order in the first inning, but things went south for him from there. Rafael Ortega tagged the right-hander for a solo homer in the second frame, and Zach McKinstry belted a two-run shot in the third to make the score 3-0. Bassitt then gave up a pair of runs on two singles and a walk in the fourth before getting pulled with two outs in the inning. The veteran hurler came into the contest having not allowed a homer over his past eight starts, and this was the first time he's allowed more than one long ball in a game since June 25. In addition, Bassitt's streak of outings without a loss came to an end at eight. He'll try to bounce back with what looks to be a favorable matchup against the Pirates this weekend.
