Bassitt to get another shot in rotation

KANSAS CITY -- Although he struggled with his command on Tuesday and lasted just 3 2/3 innings, right-hander Chris Bassitt is expected to remain in the White Sox rotation.

"He's going to get another shot at it," manager Robin Ventura said. "I see Bass still throwing in the Detroit series."

Bassitt needed 94 pitches to get 11 outs. He allowed six hits, four walks and three earned runs. At one juncture, eight of nine Kansas City hitters reached base, but Bassitt didn't cave in and left with a 4-3 lead in an eventual 7-5 White Sox victory.

It was the first time in three starts with the White Sox that Bassitt did not complete at least six innings.
