Twins' J.A. Happ: Gets hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (3-3) allowed six runs (five earned) on nine hits and a walk to go along with five strikeouts over four innings as he took the loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.

Happ gave up at least a run in three of the four innings he pitched. Things went south fast after he gave up a solo home run to J.P. Crawford to lead off the first. He then loaded the bases in the second after allowing the first three men to reach before Shed Long found the gap in right center for a bases-clearing triple. Two more runs came around to score before Happ's day was all said and done. He has really lost his groove after an excellent start to the season, as he now carries a 9.84 ERA, 1.97 WHIP and 28:10 K:BB over his last seven starts. His next chance to take the mound is expected to come at the beginning of next week at home against the Reds.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Gives up four runs Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ gave up four runs on eight hits and a walk while fanning two across five innings Thursday against the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.

Happ got off to a rough start and gave up three runs during the first inning, but he settled in afterward, even though it ended up being the second straight outing where he allowed multiple homers. The veteran has given up at least one homer in five of his last six contests and has also allowed four or more runs five times during that stretch, so he's been struggling on the mound since mid-May. Happ's next start is scheduled for next week against the Mariners on the road.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Shelled in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ allowed five earned runs on nine hits while striking out two across five innings in the loss to the Royals on Thursday. He did not factor into the decision.

Happ's struggles with the long ball continued Thursday as he surrendered three bombs. Salvador Perez took him deep twice and Hunter Dozier added one of his own. Luckily for Happ, all three home runs were solo shots. The 38-year-old has a 5.61 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 51.1 innings. In addition, he is not a high-strikeout candidate, as he has a 6.5 K/9. On a good note, he didn't walk anyone for the first time this season.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Picks up third victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (3-2) earned the win Saturday against the Royals after allowing two runs on three hits with five strikeouts and two walks over five innings.

The veteran lefty served up a two-run homer to Salvador Perez during the third inning but otherwise kept Kansas City off the board and picked up his first win since April 28. Happ has a 5.24 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 35:16 K:BB across 46.1 innings this season.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Fans 10 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Cleveland after giving up four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out 10 across six innings.

Happ bounced back from a couple of ugly outings and fanned a season-high 10, a figure that came a bit out of nowhere since his previous season-high mark for strikeouts was just four. That said, Happ has struggled badly of late and owns a 9.82 ERA in four appearances this month.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Crushed by ChiSox again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (2-2) took the loss in Monday's 16-4 rout at the hands of the White Sox, surrendering six runs on seven hits and three walks over 3.2 innings while striking out only one.

The left-hander had a 1.91 ERA through his first five starts of the season, but in two straight outings against the White Sox, Happ has been tagged for 15 runs in only seven innings, ballooning his ERA to 5.35. His 20:13 K:BB through 35.1 frames isn't encouraging either, but Happ will try to turn things around in his next start, likely to come this weekend in Cleveland.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Struggles against White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (2-1) allowed nine earned runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out three across 3.1 innings, taking the loss against the White Sox on Wednesday.

Happ could never get comfortable Wednesday, as the third inning was the only frame he kept the White Sox off the board. He gave up just one home run to Andrew Vaughn, but the White Sox constantly put pressure on the 38-year-old pitcher. Before this start, Happ had a 1.91 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP in 28.1 innings, but the former figure rose to 4.26 with Wednesday's effort. Happ's fantasy value is also capped by the fact he doesn't provide many strikeouts, as evidenced by his 5.4 K/9.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Gives up one run in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ tossed 5.1 innings of one-run ball Tuesday against the Rangers, allowing four hits and a walk while fanning three. He didn't factor into the decision.

Happ has failed to complete six innings in three of his five starts this season, but he's managed to limit the damage so far. The veteran left-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in each of his five outings and will look to keep things going in his next start, scheduled for next week on the road against the White Sox.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Fires seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (2-0) earned the win Wednesday at Cleveland after giving up two runs on four hits with three strikeouts and one walk across seven innings.

The veteran lefty's strikeout totals remain low, but he continued his fantastic start to the season Wednesday in Cleveland to record his second straight win. Happ has a 1.96 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB over 23 innings through four starts in 2021. He lines up to pitch against the Rangers early next week.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Flirts with no-hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (1-0) allowed a hit and two walks over 7.1 scoreless innings Friday, striking out three batters and earning a win over the Pirates.

Happ was absolutely dominant and carried a no-hit bid into the eighth inning before Jacob Stallings tagged him with a double. Both of his walks came in the second inning but he retired the next 17 consecutive batters. The 38-year-old lefty lowered his season ERA to 1.69 across 16 innings. Happ will take the mound in Cleveland next Wednesday.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Labors during fifth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ allowed two runs on four hits and one walk over 4.2 innings during Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Red Sox. He recorded three strikeouts and did not factor into the decision.

The 38-year-old started off with four scoreless frames but was pulled during the fifth inning after surrendering a pair of runs. Happ has had trouble pitching deep into games in his first two starts, as he's given up three runs on seven hits with a 7:4 K:BB across 8.2 innings. He's lined up for a matchup with the Angels on Sunday.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Returns to mound Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Happ had been in line to start Monday's series opener before the game was postponed due to safety concerns in Minnesota. The Twins appear set to push all the members of their rotation back a day in the pitching schedule, so Happ will remain on track for a two-start week. He's expected to make his second turn Sunday on the road versus the Angels.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Monday's contest called off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ won't start Monday against the Red Sox after the game was postponed due to safety concerns, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Happ was scheduled to make his second start of the season Monday, but the game was called off shortly before first pitch. It's not yet clear whether the southpaw will start Tuesday's contest if the game is played.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Gives up one run in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ allowed one run on three hits and three walks over four innings during Tuesday's extra-inning loss at Detroit. He notched four strikeouts and did not factor in the decision.

The 38-year-old had some control issues, as he required 89 pitches to record 12 outs, but he was still able to hold the Tigers to a single run. Happ will need to be more efficient to work deeper into games, and his next opportunity to do so will come Monday against the Red Sox.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Appears set for rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ is likely to begin the season in the rotation, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

Manager Rocco Baldelli announced Thursday that Randy Dobnak will begin the season as a reliever. That decision should lock Happ into a spot in the starting rotation, which had been in question after COVID-19 delayed him at the start of spring training.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Ramping up for regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ gave up four runs on six hits with two strikeouts and no walks over three innings in Sunday's spring training win over Baltimore. He threw 49 pitches as he hopes to ramp up to 75 pitches before Opening Day, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Happ looks on track to begin the regular season in the rotation, but Twins president of baseball operations Derek Falvey told the Pioneer Press that the team may pair Happ with a long reliever in his first start or two if Happ isn't ready for his usual workload. Happ had a delayed start to spring training after missing the first week due to COVID-19.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Sharp in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ threw two scoreless innings with a strikeout and two walks in his spring debut in Monday's loss to Atlanta. "I think he's in a very good place. I think he's lined up and is not too far behind to be ready when the season begins," manager Rocco Baldelli told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Happ missed the first week of spring training after testing positive for COVID-19, but it sounds like he'll be ready to make his first turn in the rotation in April.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Slated to debut Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ will make his spring debut Monday against Atlanta, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Happ missed the first week of spring training after testing positive for COVID-19, but he recently threw two innings of batting practice and will pitch in his first Grapefruit League game Monday. Although he's being brought along slowly to begin camp, the Twins haven't indicated that he's in danger of missing Opening Day.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Throws batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ, who missed the first week of spring training after testing positive for COVID-19, recently threw two innings of live batting practice, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The Twins will bring Happ along slowly, but it sounds like he'll be ready for the start of the regular season. He could make his spring training debut in the next week.

Twins' J.A. Happ: Joining team at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (illness) has cleared all COVID-19-related protocols and is scheduled to join the Twins for workouts Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Happ has been absent thus far from camp after testing positive for COVID-19 in February, but the veteran southpaw wasn't believed to be dealing with any serious symptoms as a result of the virus. That said, expect the Twins to take it slowly with Happ during the ramp-up process, with his Grapefruit League debut unlikely to come within the next week. However, with Opening Day still nearly a month away, Happ should have sufficient time to build up to a starter's workload by the time his first turn in the rotation comes up during the regular season.
