SP - OAK
Chris Bassitt got the win Wednesday night against the Angels lasting 5.2 innings allowing five hits (two were home runs) and four earned runs while striking out four.
Some regression was expected after three good outings to start the season but Bassitt still holds a 2.42 ERA and 0.90 WHIP through four starts and 22.1 innings with 19 strikeouts. He might not pile up a ton of quality starts but the A's are capable of providing run support. If you are chasing wins Bassitt can be deployed in deep leagues or daily formats depending on the match up.

Bassitt only threw 66 pitches and got out of a bases loaded jam in the fourth with a double play. The A’s starters have been lifted early so far this year, expect longer outings as the season moves on, but Bassitt remains a fringe option in most fantasy leagues.

Bassitt will be part of the A’s rotation to start the season with the injury to A.J. Puk and Jesus Luzardo starting the season in relief. Bassitt showed improved velocity last year striking out 141 over 144 innings, but don’t overlook his xERA of 4.41 and xWHIP of 1.30. At age 31, a step back from last years 3.81 ERA/1.19 WHIP is more likely than a step forward.
