Blue Jays' J.A. Happ: Signs three-year deal with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

J.A. Happ signed a three-year, $36 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

Happ pitched for the Blue Jays during the 2014 season before splitting last season between the Mariners and the Pirates. He had some home run issues with the Blue Jays last time around, but a solid finish to the 2015 season has earned him another deal with his former club. He'll likely slot in at the back end of the Blue Jays' rotation in 2016.

Pirates SP J.A. Happ with another strong outing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates starter J.A. Happ went six shutout innings Monday, giving up just one hit while walking none and striking out four in a 3-0 loss to the Cardinals.

Happ's excellent night on the mound came to an end after just 56 pitches, as manager Clint Hurdle opted to pinch-hit for the pitcher in the bottom of the sixth inning. With Monday's performance, Happ has now allowed three earned runs or less in each of his last nine outings. The 32-year-old southpaw has been an asset since his trade from the Mariners, making a strong case to crack Pittsburgh's playoff rotation.

Pirates' J.A. Happ continues his surging second half with win Tuesday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates starter J.A. Happ improved to 6-2 with the Pirates as he allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out eight.

Happ managed to keep the Rockies more or less grounded, as the only extra-base hit he allowed was a solo home run to Wilin Rosario -- a solid effort for an opposing pitcher at Coors Field. He induced 11 swinging strikes in just 82 pitches and five ground balls against three fly balls. He hasn't allowed more than three runs in a start since his very first one with the Pirates on August 4; since then he has a pristine 1.72 ERA with a ridiculous 52:8 K:BB in 47 innings.

Pirates pitcher J.A. Happ receives loss Tuesday
by CBSSports.com Staff | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher J.A. Happ (5-2) struck out an impressive eight batters over 5 2/3 innings, but took the loss Tuesday, surrendering eight hits, two earned runs and two walks in a 2-1 defeat to the Cubs.

In spite of being tagged with the loss, Happ was impressive for stretches once again, and turned in his third consecutive strong strikeout total. The veteran southpaw induced 15 swings-and-misses over his 62 pitches that found the strike zone Tuesday, and he has racked up an eye-opening 26 whiffs in 18 2/3 innings over three September starts.

The sudden spike in strikeouts has given Happ a robust yet seemingly unsustainable 12.9 K/9 rate for the month. However, with his recent stretch of impressive performances, he appears to be shaping up as an important component in the Pirates' postseason pitching plans.
