Top Ian Happ News

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Collects three hits Friday

    Happ went 3-for-5 with two doubles in Friday's win over the Red Sox.

    Despite the three hits, Happ managed to not score or record any RBI in the 6-5 Cubs win. It was still a good performance for the outfielder, who has six hits across his last three games and is now batting .286 this year. Happ's career best for batting average in a season is .264, which he recorded across 58 games back in 2019. He hit just .226 across 148 games last year.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Reaches three times Wednesday

    Happ went 1-for-2 with two walks, a double, a run scored and an RBI in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

    Happ displayed good patience at the plate Wednesday and helped lead the Cubs to an 8-3 win. The outfielder is displaying a better eye at the plate this season, walking roughly 13 percent of the time and lowering his strikeout rate to 19.6 percent, which would be a new career best. As a result, Happ is also batting a career-high .275 following Wednesday's production.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Blasts eighth home run

    Happ went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Pirates.

    Happ was replaced defensively by Nelson Velazquez in the bottom of the fifth inning with the Cubs up 10-1, but the former did some damage while he was in there. The outfielder went deep in the second inning with a runner on, giving him eight home runs and 34 RBI this season through 67 games. Happ also has a robust .870 OPS, making him a solid fantasy option in all formats.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Bright spot in blowout

    Happ went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

    Happ recorded Chicago's only extra-base hit and RBI in the 12-1 loss. While his team struggles, the outfielder is enjoying a solid season at the plate so far with a .290 batting average and .855 OPS. The batting average would be a new career high for Happ, who hit just .226 last year. A key factor has been more consistent contact, as he's lowered his strikeout rate from 29.2 percent in 2021 down to 19.8 percent so far in 2022.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Logs three hits in blowout loss

    Happ went 3-for-4 with a walk in Wednesday's 19-5 loss to the Padres.

    Chicago has now dropped nine consecutive games, but it's been through no fault of Happ. The 27-year-old has slashed .361/.439/.583 during the losing streak and has now recorded at least one hit in all but one of his last 14 starts. He'll serve as Chicago's designated hitter and No. 3 batter in Thursday's series finale.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Posts big line Sunday

    Happ went 3-for-3 with a walk, a triple, a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

    Happ was a bright spot in Chicago's 18-4 loss. The outfielder now has seven home runs and 30 RBI this season, and he's been locked in lately with a .378 batting average across his last 10 games. The Cubs are struggling at 23-36, but Happ should remain a strong fantasy contributor as one of the team's best hitters, particularly if he keeps swinging the bat like this.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Steals base in defeat

    Happ went 1-for-5 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 13-inning loss to the Yankees.

    The stolen base, which came in the first inning after Happ singled against New York starter Luis Severino, was the fifth of the season for the outfielder on six attempts. He's never been a huge speed guy, as his career high for steals in a season is nine, which he recorded last year. If Happ keeps up his current pace, he may at least be able to top that mark and get to double figures for the first time.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Big day in twin bill

    Happ went 3-for-7 with two walks, two doubles, two RBI and a stolen base across both games of Saturday's doubleheader split with the Cardinals.

    The 27-year-old was productive in both ends of the twin bill, but he did most of his damage in the Cubs' 6-1 win during the matinee. Happ has hit safely in six straight games, batting .450 (9-for-20) with three doubles, a triple and a homer during that stretch, and the tear has boosted his slash line on the season to .272/.377/.451 with six home runs, four steals, 27 runs and 29 RBI through 52 contests.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Goes deep Thursday

    Happ went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

    Happ came into the contest in a 2-for-17 slump over his previous five games, and this was his first multi-hit effort since May 23. The outfielder still has a solid .258 average and .802 OPS this season, which are up from the .226 and .757 marks he posted last year, respectively. He has his ups and downs, but Happ should remain a productive fantasy asset so long as he stays healthy.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Sitting Game 1

    Happ is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Brewers.

    Happ will get a breather after starting seven straight games, batting .214 with five extra-base hits including two homers over that stretch. Clint Frazier will start in his place in left field and bat sixth in the early game Monday.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Goes deep in lopsided loss

    Happ went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

    Happ had a nice game but it was overshadowed by the Reds rolling to a 20-5 victory. The outfielder is still playing well lately, as he's blasted three home runs over his past nine games to get to five long balls for the season. It looks like the power is finally coming around for Happ, who blasted 25 home runs last season, so his fantasy value could trend upward in a hurry if he stays hot.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Big effort in Monday's win

    Happ went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Monday's win over the Reds.

    Happ's three-run home run in the seventh inning, his fourth of the season, broke open a 4-3 game and helped lead the Cubs to the 7-4 victory. While the power hasn't fully arrived yet, the outfielder does now have 22 RBI through 39 games to go with a solid .836 OPS. Happ's career high for RBI is 68, which he tallied back during his 2017 rookie season, and he could surpass that figure if he stays healthy this year.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Returns with two hits

    Happ went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    After an off day Saturday, Happ returned with a solid performance Sunday. The outfielder has been playing well lately, as he's batting .281 over his past 10 games with a home run, three RBI and six runs scored. He's also struck out just five times in those contests. Limiting whiffs will be critical for Happ moving forward if he wants to finish the year strong.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Not starting Saturday

    Happ isn't starting Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

    Happ drew starts in the last 13 games, but he'll get a breather after he went 0-for-7 with an RBI, a walk and two strikeouts over the last two matchups. Patrick Wisdom will shift to left field while Ildemaro Vargas starts at second base.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Records three hits in Monday romp

    Happ went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Pirates.

    The Cubs rolled 9-0, and Happ and Willson Contreras combined for five hits, four runs and five RBI, while the Pirates mustered only three hits as a team. Along with Contreras and Seiya Suzuki, Happ has been one of the team's top offensive performers. The outfielder is tied for second on the club with 16 RBI and his 17 runs are good for third. He hasn't offered much power yet, though, with only two home runs across 32 games.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Drives in two Monday

    Happ went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Monday's win over the Padres.

    Though the Cubs are struggling at 10-18, Happ has been steadily producing all season, as he now has a .277 batting average, .794 OPS and 14 RBI across 26 games. The outfielder has been able to cut down on the strikeouts and he's making more consistent contact at the plate, as his average would represent a new career best if it holds up all year.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: On bench for matinee

    Happ isn't starting the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

    Happ will get his first game off since April 22 after he went 2-for-15 with a run, five walks and six strikeouts over the last five matchups. Patrick Wisdom will shift to left field while Jonathan Villar starts at third base.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Reaches twice, scores Tuesday

    Happ went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

    The Cubs struggled to get much going against Michael Kopech and a host of relievers, but Happ continued his strong start to the season. The outfielder is now batting .304 with an .859 OPS across 22 games, and he has 12 runs scored and 11 RBI. Happ looks primed for a solid year as a focal point of Chicago's attack, and his average is particularly promising after he hit just .226 in 2021 with a strikeout rate just under 30 percent. The 27-year-old has trimmed that to under 19 percent so far this season.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: On base three times Wednesday

    Happ went 1-for-2 with two walks, a run scored and an RBI in Wednesday's 6-3 extra-inning win over Atlanta.

    The 27-year-old switch hitter has reached base in nine straight games as he continues to enjoy a fantastic start to the season. Happ is slashing .340/.446/.509 through 65 plate appearances with two homers, 11 runs and 11 RBI, and he's found a home in the heart of the Cubs' order against right-handed pitching.
