RotoWire News: Manager Bob Melvin raved about how Bassitt (elbow) looked in a 30-pitch bullpen session, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. (3/14/2017)
Injury: Elbow, Day-to-Day

Profile: Chris Bassitt was something of a sleeper going into the 2016 season. His strong velocity differentials (mixing up a mid-90s fastball with a low-70s curve) and his overall "good stuff" had many hoping he could continue to outperform his peripherals, as he did in 2015 when his 3.56 ERA dramatically outpaced his 4.50 xFIP. Unfortunately, Bassitt made it five starts into 2016 (giving up 13 ER and 5 BB over 8.2 IP in the last two) before an elbow injury and Tommy John surgery prematurely ended his season. Bassitt is expected to be healthy again by mid-2017, and there's a decent chance that the Athletics will have a slot for him in the rotation when he gets back. With his potential post-injury pitfalls and his iffy numbers pre-injury, though, Bassitt is likely to present fairly high risks and fairly low rewards for fantasy owners. He shouldn't be targeted in most drafts, but he could be a potential flier in deeper leagues when he comes back midseason. (Brice Russ)

The Quick Opinion: Bassitt's 2016 came to a quick end, and he's not expected to return until midseason. He hasn't completely lost his sleeper shine yet, but he's probably not one to keep an eye on unless you're desperate for upside in a deep league.
