Top Chris Bassitt News

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Placed on paternity leave

    Bassitt was placed on the paternity list Saturday, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    Bassitt was excused from the Blue Jays immediately after delivering 7.2 scoreless innings in a win over the Mets on Friday. He should be back in time for his next scheduled turn in the rotation, an outing in Toronto versus the visiting Astros.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Brilliant against former club

    Bassitt (6-4) picked up the win in Friday's 3-0 victory over the Mets, scattering three hits over 7.2 scoreless innings. He struck out eight without walking a batter.

    All things considered, Bassitt's ability to maintain his focus and shut down the team he pitched for in 2022 was uncanny. The veteran right-hander had to wait out a 90-minute rain delay, and once he took the mound he pitched like a man who had a plane to catch -- which in fact he did, as his wife was back in Toronto about to give birth to their second child. Bassitt fired 64 of 101 pitches for strikes and retired 14 straight Mets at one point, a streak ended by a Starling Marte single in the seventh inning. The quality start was Bassitt's ninth in 12 outings this season, and he'll take a 3.41 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 65:26 K:BB through 74 innings into his next start, likely to come at home next week against the Astros.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Hit around by Twins

    Bassitt (5-4) took the loss Saturday, allowing seven runs on nine hits and two walks over four innings against the Twins. He struck out five.

    Bassitt was tagged for the second straight start -- he's allowed six or more runs in each appearance after failing to allow a run in his previous four starts. He had a nightmare fourth inning Saturday, allowing a leadoff single to Alex Kirilloff and then giving up back-to-back homers to Ariel Castro and Matt Wallner before being pulled. Though Bassitt appears to be going through a rough patch, fantasy managers should maintain faith considering he was one of MLB's top pitchers for a month-and-a-half stretch, boasting a 1.71 ERA and 8.2 K/9 over 52.2 innings from April 7 to May 17.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Scoreless streak snapped

    Bassitt (5-3) allowed six runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk over 6.1 innings Monday, striking out four and taking a loss against the Rays.

    Bassitt entered Monday riding a 27-inning scoreless streak, but he lost that quickly when the Rays plated three runs in the second inning. He gave up three home runs in the rough outing, including a solo shot to Luke Raley that knocked him out of the game, after giving up just two long balls over his previous eight starts. Bassitt still owns a strong 3.03 ERA with a 52:24 K:BB through 62.1 innings. His next start is projected to be in Minnesota this weekend.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Extends scoreless streak

    Bassitt didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 2-0 extra-inning win over the Yankees, scattering three hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings. He struck out seven.

    The right-hander dazzled once again, as Bassitt didn't allow a runner to get past second base as he extended his scoreless streak to 27 innings -- he hasn't let a runner cross the plate since the first inning of an April 30 outing against the Mariners. Bassitt tossed 66 of 97 pitches for strikes while delivering his seventh quality start of the season, and he'll take a 3.05 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 48:23 K:BB through 56 innings into his next trip to the mound, which is likely to come early next week in Tampa Bay.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Spins second career shutout

    Bassitt (5-2) picked up the win in Friday's 3-0 victory over Atlanta, allowing two hits, two walks and two hit-by-pitches over nine shutout innings. He struck out eight.

    The veteran right-hander rose to the occasion in a matchup with Atlanta ace Spencer Strider, retiring the first 13 batters he faced before Eddie Rosario doubled in the fifth inning -- only for the outfielder to get thrown out trying to steal third, as the visitors couldn't get a runner past second base all night. Bassitt's shutout was the second of his career and the first by any Toronto pitcher since Mark Buehrle in 2015. Bassitt has won four straight decisions and will take a 3.49 ERA and 41:22 K:BB through 49 innings into his next outing, likely to come at home next week against the Yankees.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Blanks Bucs for fourth win

    Bassitt (4-2) picked up the win in Friday's 4-0 victory over the Pirates, allowing four hits and four walks over seven scoreless innings. He struck out five.

    The veteran right-hander's control continues to waver a bit, as Bassitt has issued at least three free passes in five of his last six starts, but at least Friday they didn't come back to haunt him. After a disastrous Toronto debut that saw the Cardinals take him deep four times, he has a 2.45 ERA, 1.06 WHIP 33:20 K:BB over his last 36.2 innings, serving up only two homers during that stretch. Bassitt will look to keep rolling in his next outing, likely to come next weekend at home against Atlanta.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Seven strikeouts in no-decision

    Bassitt did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing four runs on two hits and four walks over five innings in a 10-8 loss against the Mariners. He struck out seven.

    After back-to-back strikeouts to start the game, Bassitt walked two and hit a batter before surrendering a grand slam to Taylor Trammell. The right-hander was able to settle down after getting through the first and was in line for the win after four straight scoreless frames. Sunday's performance marked just the second time Bassitt failed to get through six innings and snapped a run of four straight outings with two or fewer earned runs. Bassitt's next start is tentatively scheduled versus the Pirates, who are tied for fourth in MLB in runs per game (5.5).
