Chris Bassitt allowed four hits and two walks over five scoreless innings on Sunday against the Phillies. He struck out five and earned the win, moving to 10-7.
Bassitt was excellent on Sunday, but the Phillies made him work, fouling off 21 pitches on the day and driving up his pitch count to 97 over just five innings. This was the third straight outing for Bassitt in which he allowed zero earned runs, and although they were in three soft matchups, it's an impressive feat for the veteran. He is now down to a 3.27 ERA and 1.13 WHIP, and is a must-start option. He will take on the Phillies again next.
Chris Bassitt allowed one unearned run on eight hits and a walk over eight innings on Monday against the Reds. He struck out eight and earned the win, moving to 9-7.

Bassitt was excellent in the soft matchup against the Reds, clocking in with a 33% CSW rate, but the bottom line is that he's consistent enough that he's worth starting every time out. He's now down to a 3.39 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP, and will take on the Phillies next.
Chris Bassitt allowed six hits and a walk over seven shutout innings on Wednesday against the Nationals. He struck out four and earned the win, moving to 8-7.
Bassitt was staked to a big lead so didn't need to do much against a weak lineup, and traded in some whiffs for some weak contact. He allowed just a 79.3 MPH average exit velocity on the day and two hard-hit balls. Bassitt isn't a star but he now has a 3.61 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP, and can be started every time out, including in his next outing against the Reds.
Mets SP Chris Bassitt completed six innings. But they certainly weren't the most productive innings. He allowed four runs on six hits and four walks, only striking out two.
The Mets offense backed him up and kept Bassitt from a loss. In the 8th, Brandon Nimmo hit a game-winning two-run home run as New York beat Miami 6-4. The veteran righty will look for better results at Washington next time out.

Bassitt notched a 39% CSW rate on Saturday, an outstanding number, and managed to strike out 11 batters despite generating just 10 whiffs. He hadn't reached double digits in strikeouts all season so this outing is more of the exception than the rule, but he does now have a 3.72 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. He's worth starting every time out, including in his next outing against the Marlins.
