Chris Bassitt returns as A's try to avoid sweep vs. Mariners

Five weeks after getting hit in the face with a 100-mph line drive, Chris Bassitt is ready to return to the mound.

The Oakland right-hander is scheduled to start Thursday afternoon when the A's wrap up a four-game series with the visiting Seattle Mariners.

"I think initially, it'll be like, 'Wow!' " A's manager Bob Melvin said of his expectations. "After that, it'll be like regular Chris Bassitt doing his thing out there. We'll come full circle with him back on the mound. This is something that he's been trying to get back to doing from the very beginning.
