Happ isn't starting Thursday's game against the Mets.
Happ's recent slump continued across the last two games, as he went 1-for-7 with three strikeouts. Jake Marisnick will take over in center field and bat seventh.
Happ will get the day off Monday against the Mets.
Happ has struggled significantly over his last 20 games, hitting just .131/.274/.246. Jake Marisnick will handle center field in his absence.
Happ went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Cardinals.
Happ hit a two-run home run off John Gant as a part of the five-run second inning. He added an eighth-inning walk. The 26-year-old has struggled this season, slashing .195/.320/.367 in 202 plate appearances. Consequently, he lost his leadoff role this season and finds himself toward the bottom of the lineup, though the sixth spot isn't terrible on this Cubs team. He has eight homers, 18 RBI and 22 runs in 52 games.
Happ is out of the lineup Friday against the Cardinals.
The 26-year-old is 2-for-25 through eight games in June and will take a seat for the second time in the past three contests. Kris Bryant will shift to center field while Patrick Wisdom continues to start at third base.
Happ is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Padres.

Happ went 1-for-2 with two walks, a double and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Giants.
Happ has been slumping lately, as he came into the day with just four hits in his last 13 games. Perhaps a day off Saturday helped get him back on track, but the 26-year-old will want to string together a few good efforts to show he's truly out of his slump.
Happ will sit Saturday against the Giants.
Happ started 20 straight games after returning from a rib injury in mid-May. He hit well at the start of that stretch but has since gone on to grab just four hits in his last 13 games, lowering his season slash line to .186/.306/.327. Kris Bryant will move to center field in Happ's absence.
Happ went 1-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the Reds.
Happ plated two of the Cubs' 10 runs with a two-run single in the bottom of the eighth, scoring Kris Bryant and Javier Baez. The centerfielder has struggled badly this season and is hitting just .209 with a .706 OPS, but he might be turning things around after extending his streak of games reaching base at least once to six contests.
Happ went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Friday's 12-3 win over the Cardinals.
Happ has been scuffling a bit in the first few months of the season, but he got in on the offensive fun Friday. Joc Pederson has taken over as the team's preferred leadoff hitter, which has bumped Happ down to the bottom half of the order lately. Perhaps the move will ultimately take some pressure off him and set him up for better production the rest of the way.
Happ went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI during Thursday's win over the Nationals.
Thanks to a recent resurgence, Happ moved his way up in the lineup to the cleanup spot and made it count, hammering out a pair of long balls to bring his season total to six. The outfielder gave Chicago the lead for good with a two-run shot in the third inning. He then led off the fifth frame with his second homer of the day. Happ now has four home runs across six games since coming off the injured list following a collision with teammate Nico Hoerner. After a slow start to the season, Happ is slowly raising his slash line to .206/.320/.402.
Happ went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.
Happ connected for his fourth home run of the season in the eighth inning against Wander Suero. It's a good sign for the outfielder, who's been struggling this season with a .192 batting average. He also missed 11 days with a left rib contusion. Happ has seen Willson Contreras take over as the team's leadoff hitter in the meantime, but perhaps the home run Tuesday and a lower spot in the order will help him settle into a groove moving forward.
Happ went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Tigers.
Happ came a triple shy of the cycle and made his presence felt at the bottom of the Cubs lineup, scoring a run in the third, hitting an RBI double in the fourth, and adding a solo shot in the sixth. The center fielder is only hitting .183 this season, but this game will undoubtedly be a confidence booster for him now that he's back from a stint in the injured list.
Happ (ribs) was activated off the injured list Saturday and will bat sixth and play center field against the Tigers.
Happ will wind up missing slightly more than the minimum 10 days after suffering a left rib contusion in a collision with teammate Nico Hoerner in early May.

Happ (ribs) is unlikely to be reinstated from the injured list Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Happ has been on the 10-day injured list since May 4, so Friday marked the first day that he'd be eligible to return.

Happ was placed on the injured list with a left rib contusion Friday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.
The move comes as no surprise, as Happ hasn't taken the field since colliding with teammate Nico Hoerner (forearm) on Tuesday. Hoerner has also been placed on the injured list. Happ's transaction was backdated by three days, so he'll be eligible to return next Friday, though it remains to be seen whether or not the Cubs expect him to do so. Nick Martini was recalled in a corresponding move.
Happ (ribs) is out of the lineup Friday against the Pirates.
It's the third straight absence for the 26-year-old after suffering a rib injury on a collision with teammate Nico Hoerner (forearm) during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Happ looked as though he suffered a serious injury when he was involved in a collision with teammate Nico Hoerner during Sunday's loss to the Reds, but he was fortunate to avoid a concussion. For now, the Cubs are viewing Happ as day-to-day before he heads in for more tests on his ribcage later Tuesday, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com. Based on the results of his tests and how sore he's feeling, Happ could be an option to play in the second half of the doubleheader, but it's more likely Ross gives the 26-year-old the entire day off.
Happ (head) is not in the lineup Monday against the Dodgers.
Happ will be on the bench for at least one game after hitting his head in a collision with teammate Nico Hoerner against the Reds on Sunday. Kris Bryant will make his second career start in center field in his absence.
