RHP Wahl transferred to 60-day DL

The Oakland A's reinstated right-handed pitcher Chris Bassitt from the 60-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Nashville, the club announced today. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the A's transferred right-handed pitcher Bobby Wahl to the 60-day DL.

Bassitt began the season on the disabled list as he continued his recovery from May 6, 2016 UCL reconstruction surgery on his right elbow. He began a rehab assignment on April 29 and made five appearances before his assignment was halted May 24. His rehab resumed June 28 with another eight appearances. Bassitt combined for a 1-2 record and a 5.46 ERA in 13 games, including nine starts, with Single-A Stockton and Triple-A Nashville. He walked 12 and struck out 26 in 31.1 innings while allowing a .254 batting average.
