MESA, Ariz. - Right-hander Chris Bassitt knows he's not high on the A's radar this spring, and, he said, that's fair enough.
"Forgotten? Yes, I do feel that," he said. "At the same time, it's warranted. But I've pretty much made a career of proving people wrong from the aspect of you're the odd man out and all of a sudden you're in there. That role, I'm comfortable with it. As for people who say I'm not in one of the five spots, that's warranted."
Bassitt is almost two years removed from Tommy John surgery. He has had no pain since the procedure and he believes he can earn a rotation spot.
He's realistic, though. His 2017 season was erratic after he returned to pitching.
