    This doesn’t make a ton of sense for the A’s. They’ll need Bassitt if they want to make a playoff push, and they have nowhere to play Rooker – blocked at first by Olson, at DH by Davis, etc. If Oakland falls out of it and decides to move Bassitt, it would likely be for younger pitching.

      I agree. At best, Rooker would play in left, which is only a mild need for the A’s given that they already have Grossman/Pinder/Cahna. Not only is Bassitt needed by the A’s this year, I think he’s a good bet for next’s rotation year too. He’s been effective and will still be relatively cheap. It’s also unlikely that all our hopefully close-to-returning injured pitchers — Manaea, Cotton, Puk and Luzardo — will be healthy and effective. Until their health and effectiveness is established, Bassitt will almost certainly stay. Mengden (and maybe Blackburn) would be dealt before Bassitt.
