BSAS are SAS disks in a SATA enclosure/shelf.

You cannot mixed SAS and SATA together and its certainly not recommended. best practise is create aggr's for each disk type where possible. I would keep then separate.

You are correct - BSAS is similar to SATA and can be used for Tier 2 storage in general applications.

The various types of mix and match is available in below link
