Oakland manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that Bassitt will come off the injured list and start Thursday's series finale at home against the Seattle Mariners in a matchup of American League wild-card contenders.
"This is something that he's been trying to get back to doing from the very beginning," Melvin said. "To me it's kind of miraculous, but considering it's Chris Bassitt, not so much."
Bassitt, 32, was carted off the field and taken to a hospital. He received stitches for cuts in his face and had surgery for a fracture in his right cheek.
Bassitt is 12-4 with a 3.22 ERA this year.
