Cubs' Ian Happ: Could take over larger utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs may lean heavily on Happ in a utility role to reduce the workload of Ben Zobrist this season, the Chicago Tribune reports.

A clear-cut plan for how the playing time will be divided between second base and the three outfield spots has not be revealed, but Happ is expected to move around often as he can spell Kyle Schwarber or Jason Heyward against lefties, handle center field against tough righties when Albert Almora sits, and fill in for Javier Baez at the keystone if desired. Nevertheless, it sounds like he's positioned to at least match the 413 plate appearances he racked up last season, and it's worth noting that Zobrist nearly reached 500 plate appearances a year ago, a feat that seems highly unlikely in 2018.

Happ is not in the lineup for Game 5 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Thursday.

Over the course of the playoffs, Happ is just 0-for-6 at the plate with five strikeouts and a walk, and will remain on the bench for another elimination game against Clayton Kershaw. Albert Almora will patrol center and Kyle Schwarber gets the nod in left.

Cubs' Ian Happ: Heads to bench for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Happ will head to the bench as manager Joe Maddon deploys an outfield consisting of all left-handed hitters (Kyle Schwarber, Jon Jay, Jason Heyward) against righty Yu Darvish. Happ is 0-for-4 with three strikeouts this postseason, so while he'll be available off the bench, Maddon may choose to turn elsewhere late in the game.

Over the course of this series, Happ has gone 0-for-3 at the plate with a pair of strikeouts and one walk, all of which came in Game 2.

Cubs' Ian Happ: Not in Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Happ is out of the lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS against Washington on Wednesday.

Although Tuesday's game was postponed due to weather, manager Joe Maddon will trot out the same starting nine that he had on the lineup card, which places Happ on the bench. With right-hander Tanner Roark taking the mound, Jon Jay will patrol center field and bat atop the order.
