Bassitt is 1-2 with a 3.66 ERA in his last three outings and took the loss against the Miami Marlins last Friday in New York despite notching a quality start. He allowed two runs and six hits in six innings with three strikeouts and no walks in his first start since coming off the COVID-19 injured list

He was not happy about the IL stint.

“I was never sick. Never had a symptom.”

Mets vs Braves Betting Outlook

The Braves used the longball to beat the Mets on Tuesday night.

Matt Olson, who has +10000 National League MVP odds, hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning to put the Braves ahead 2-1. Adam Duvall then hit a two-run shot an inning later to give Atlanta some cushion.

— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) July 13, 2022

Both teams had just five hits.

Mets right fielder Starling Marte is expected to miss his fourth straight game Wednesday with left groin tightness.

The Braves plan to activate closer Kenley Jansen from the injured list prior to Wednesday’s game. He has been out since June 27 with an irregular heartbeat.

The teams have split six games this season, but the Braves are 44-29 against the Mets since 2018.
