Yankees' J.A. Happ: Takes loss to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (7-5) allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five over 5.1 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

The 36-year-old has now dropped his last two decisions after winning six straight decisions from May 9 to June 18. That streak of wins ended with a thud, as the Astros hung an eight-spot on Happ in his final start of June. Thankfully he doesn't have to face Houston every start. Happ lines up to pitch against Tampa Bay next week, and he's had the Rays' number over the past two seasons (1.93 ERA).

Yankees' J.A. Happ: No-decision against Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ threw 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Thursday, giving up one earned run on three hits, striking out five and walking three in the Yankees' eventual 8-4 extra-inning victory. He struck out three and walked one.

It was a solid start for the left-hander, but he didn't wind up getting his eighth win of the season as Aroldis Chapman was tagged with a rare blown save. Still, it was a welcome bounce-back effort for Happ after he got blown up for eight earned by the Astros in his last start. He now sports a 5.02 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 71:22 K:BB through 89.2 innings.

Yankees' J.A. Happ: Re-enters rotation Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ will start Thursday's game against the Mariners.

Happ returns to the hill for the first time since June 23 after a stretch of multiple off days allowed the Yankees to streamline their rotation. With Domingo German (hip) returning from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Happ now looks like the club's clear No. 5 starter, putting him most at risk of moving to the bullpen in the event the Yankees elect to trade for an upgrade prior to the July 31 deadline. Through 16 outings this season, Happ has posted a 5.23 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 84.1 innings.

Yankees' J.A. Happ: Unlikely to start this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ is expected to work out of the bullpen this week with the Yankees scheduled to play only five games, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Happ last pitched Sunday at home against Houston, serving up eight runs on 11 hits over four innings to inflate his season ERA and WHIP to 5.23 and 1.28, respectively. With the Yankees off the schedule Thursday and Friday, Happ wouldn't have been available to pitch again until this weekend's two-game series with the Red Sox in London. Manager Aaron Boone seems inclined to take advantage of the off days to rearrange the rotation order, as Masahiro Tanaka is slated to make his normally scheduled turn Saturday, while CC Sabathia, who turned in a quality start in Monday's win over Toronto, is the most likely candidate to take the hill Sunday. Happ should make the trip to London and offer some length out of the bullpen before likely rejoining the rotation during next week's four-game series in Tampa Bay.

Yankees' J.A. Happ: Lit up in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (7-4) took the loss Sunday against the Astros, allowing eight runs on 11 hits in four innings while striking out two batters.

Happ was bitten by the long ball in this one. He allowed a leadoff home run to Jose Altuve before serving up a grand slam to Tyler White in the fourth inning and a two-run shot to Yordan Alvarez before exiting with no outs in the fifth inning. The veteran southpaw now owns a lackluster 5.23 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 66:19 K:BB through 84.1 innings (16 starts) this season. He'll look to right the ship in his next outing, which will likely come in London against the Red Sox.

Yankees' J.A. Happ: Earns seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (7-3) allowed two runs on seven hits with three strikeouts and no walks across five innings while earning a victory against the Rays on Tuesday.

The veteran left-hander has pitched better lately, but his record is still misleading. Happ is 7-3 but owns a 5.16 FIP. While he is 4-0 with a 3.54 ERA in his last five outings, the Yankees offense has been the main reason he's won six straight decisions. Since May 9, the Yankees have averaged 5.6 runs per game when Happ pitches. Overall, he possesses a 4.59 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 64 strikeouts in 80.1 innings this season. Happ will pitch next at home against the Astros on Sunday.

June 14, 2019 01:20 AM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Walks four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ did not factor into the decision in Thursday's loss to the White Sox, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two through five innings.

Happ looked solid until the fourth inning when he loaded the bases on a single and a pair of walks. It was the first time all year that Happ pitched with the bases loaded. Despite throwing nine straight balls, the 36-year-old managed to work his way out of the jam without any damage. Unfortunately, the White Sox got to Happ again in the fifth. The lefty gave up a leadoff walk to Yolmer Sanchez, then allowed a single to Ryan Cordell and an RBI double to Leury Garcia. Tim Anderson then crushed a three-run, 416-foot homer to even the score, 4-4. The long ball has proven to be Happ's nemesis, and Thursday was no exception. He'll carry a 4.68 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 61:19 K:BB into a Tuesday showdown with Tampa Bay.

Yankees' J.A. Happ: Picks up win against Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (5-3) allowed one run on three hits with five strikeouts and two walks across five innings to earn a victory against the Red Sox on Friday.

The 36-year-old did toss up another home run, but it was only a solo shot. With a 5.34 FIP, Happ hasn't exactly pitched well this season, but allowing long balls has been one of his biggest problems. Despite earning a win in four of his last five outings, Happ has a career-high 19.0 percent HR/FB and 2.13 HR/9. He is 5-3 with a 4.83 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 55 strikeouts in 63.1 innings this season. Happ will face the Blue Jays in his next start Thursday.

May 30, 2019 05:04 PM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Red Sox-Yankees postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ's scheduled start against the Red Sox on Thursday has been postponed due to inclement weather.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader in August. Happ will now start Friday, with Domingo German getting the ball Saturday and CC Sabathia starting Sunday.

May 26, 2019 01:52 AM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Strikes out 10 in fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (4-3) struck out ten and picked up the win in Saturday's 7-3 victory over the Royals, giving up three runs on four hits over six innings.

Happ shut out the Royals until the sixth inning, but Whit Merrifield blasted a three-run homer to tie the score. The left-hander recovered to finish the inning before turning the game over to the Yankees bullpen after 82 pitches. The 36-year-old will carry a 5.09 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP and 50:13 K:BB over 58.1 innings into a tough matchup Thursday at home against the Red Sox.

May 24, 2019 09:56 PM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Starting Game 1 Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ will start Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Saturday is Happ's scheduled day to pitch. He'll take the mound for the first half of the twin bill, though the Yankees have yet to announce who will start the nightcap.

May 20, 2019 11:12 PM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Hit hard in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ gave up six runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out three through 3.2 innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Monday.

Happ gave up two runs in the first inning and it didn't get any better from there as he gave up two solo home runs and two more runs before being removed. Over the last month, he has a 3-2 record with a 4.02 ERA, but he also has given up 10 home runs. Happ will look to bounce back in his next start Saturday against the Royals.

May 16, 2019 02:28 PM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Improves to 3-3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (3-3) allowed three runs on five hits with three strikeouts and no walks across 5.1 innings against the Orioles during the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

The veteran gave up two more home runs Wednesday, which has been a problem for him this season. His 2.1 HR/9 is the worst of his career, and he's almost allowed as many homers (11) as walks (12) this year. Overall, Happ is 3-3 with a 4.44 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 48.2 innings this season. He will start again against the Orioles on the road Monday.

May 15, 2019 01:44 PM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Starting Game 1 of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ has been confirmed as the starter for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Happ was expected to pitch Tuesday, but the contest was postponed due to inclement weather. Domingo German is slated to toe the rubber for the nightcap.

May 10, 2019 11:28 AM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Earns second victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (2-3) picked up the win versus Seattle on Thursday, allowing no runs on one hit and three walks while striking out seven.

Happ gave up only a harmless Tom Murphy third-inning single while establishing a season high with his seven strikeouts. The main knock on the lefty in this appearance was his inefficiency; three walks and a hit batsman led to a short outing in which Happ threw 94 pitches in five innings. He'll face the Orioles on Tuesday in his next scheduled start.

May 4, 2019 05:40 PM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Sustains third loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (1-3) took the loss after allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk over 5.2 innings against the Twins on Saturday. He struck out three.

Happ was reached for a two-run homer by Mitch Garver in the third inning and a solo homer by C.J. Cron in the sixth and departed with a 4-0 deficit. For the season, the 36-year-old has a 4.93 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. He will look to improve upon those marks in his next start, now scheduled for Thursday at home versus the Mariners.

April 28, 2019 10:40 AM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Fires seven scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (1-2) earned the win against the Giants on Saturday by allowing only five hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out two and did not issue a walk.

Happ failed to get through five innings across his first three outings of the year but has now delivered three straight quality starts since then. The veteran left-hander has a 4.68 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB over 32.2 innings and lines up to face the Twins next Friday.

April 23, 2019 09:48 AM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Solid in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ threw seven innings in a no-decision against the Angels on Monday, giving up two earned runs on three hits over seven innings, striking out five and walking two as the Yankees eventually prevailed 4-3 in 14 innings.

The left-hander was off to a rough start, but he turned in a solid outing in this one, lowering his ERA from 7.23 to 5.96 and working efficiently, throwing 89 pitches over his seven innings. He'll look to build on this effort in his next start, which will see him take on the Giants in a road matchup Sunday.

April 18, 2019 01:52 AM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Grabs first quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ gave up three runs on six hits and one walk across 6.1 innings during Wednesday's win over the Red Sox. He struck out four but did not factor in the decision.

Happ's rough start to the season looked as though it would continue Wednesday as he allowed three runs on two homers during the first two innings, but he finally settled in and put together a solid outing. The veteran left-hander has a 7.23 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 17:6 K:BB over 18.2 innings and lines up to face the Angels on Monday.

April 13, 2019 03:16 PM
Yankees' J.A. Happ: Off to horrible start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ (0-2) allowed six runs on nine hits with five strikeouts and two walks across four frames to take the loss Friday against the White Sox.

It's hard to imagine a worse start to the season for Happ, who now has an 8.76 ERA. Opposing hitters are batting .345 against him, and he's tossed up four homers in 12.1 innings. It's early, but Happ has dug himself a deep hole to climb out of this summer.
