Blue Jays' J.A. Happ: Focuses training on explosiveness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ has decided not to build endurance through cardio workouts in favor of exercises that put a premium on short bursts of high-intensity activities, Paul Hagen of MLB.com reports.

Happ has steered away from the traditional running exercises that pitchers are known for. "I think we've figured out that some of the traditions in baseball are a little backwards," Happ said before Tuesday's drills. "It used to be to go out and run [foul pole to foul pole] for 20 minutes. That's not beneficial for me. It's just going to hurt my back, take some weight off me. And I'm trying to get stronger and build and be more explosive." Last year's 20-game winner traditionally hands the ball to his bullpen near the seventh inning, so owners shouldn't expect stamina (and complete games) to be part of what they're buying on draft day.

Blue Jays' J.A. Happ: Headed to WBC with Team USA
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Happ was named part of Team USA's 13-man pitching staff for the World Baseball Classic, Mike Wilner reports.

Happ was one of only two Blue Jays to make the team (Marcus Stroman was the other). Despite tossing a career-high 195 innings in 2016, the 34-year-old lefty has committed to ramping up the new campaign early, adding an extra month to the 2017 season by participating in the WBC. Coming off his first 20-win season, Happ will draw the attention of many in drafts this year, but the extra workload in March raises concerns about what the veteran will have left in the tank late in the MLB season.

Blue Jays' J.A. Happ: Drops Game 2 of ALCS versus Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ pitched five innings, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four in Saturday's ALCS Game 2 loss to Cleveland.

Happ was dealing for most of the afternoon, tossing 62 of 94 pitches for strikes while inducing an admirable 14 swings and misses. Unfortunately for him and the Jays, the southpaw was outdueled by Indians' starter Josh Tomlin, who allowed just one run over 5.2 innings. The 33-year-old has lasted five innings in both of his playoff starts, although Saturday's performance was an improvement from his ALDS outing in which Happ allowed 10 base runners. Assuming manager John Gibbons sticks with the current playoff rotation, Happ would be in line for Friday's Game 6 start in Cleveland, if necessary.

Blue Jays' J.A. Happ: Slated to start Game 2 of ALCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ is scheduled to pitch Game 2 of the ALCS against the Indians on Saturday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of SportsNet reports.

Happ has thrown one game this postseason, which came against the Red Sox. Although he gave up nine hits and walked a batter, Happ escaped relatively unharmed, as he allowed just one run and picked up the win. He's had success against the Indians this season as well. In his single outing against Cleveland, he notched 11 strikeouts and gave up one run over seven innings.

Blue Jays' J.A. Happ: Pitches well in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ allowed just two runs -- one earned -- in 7.1 innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Monday. He allowed six hits, walked one, and struck out two.

Happ has been rolling of late, allowing just six earned runs over his last four starts. The 20-game winner has lived up to expectations in his first year in Toronto, setting career-best marks in wins, strikeouts, and WHIP. His final regular-season start will come Saturday in Boston.
