Description: Toronto starter J.A. Happ battened down the hatches Thursday against the White Sox.
Insight: He kept Chicago scoreless for 7 2/3 innings, allowing just four hits and two walks over that span. Happ (7-4, 4.29 ERA) also recorded a season-high eight strikeouts. His next outing is scheduled for Wednesday against Milwaukee.
 
5/25/2014 7:48:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ tossed seven scoreless innings with seven strikeouts Sunday against the Athletics.
Insight: Happ has gone 4-1 with a 3.20 ERA in five starts since he rejoined the rotation, but a 1.58 WHIP and a 1.52 HR/9 make him risky.
 
3/26/2014 4:23:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ (back) will begin the year on the disabled list, according to the Toronto Star.
Insight: Happ gave up 16 earned runs and 21 hits while walking nine in seven innings this spring. He'll try to work out his issues and can be ignored by fantasy owners.
 
3/6/2014 2:20:00 PM
Description: Toronto lefthander J.A. Happ has been dealing with a sore back and it shows in his early work (1.3 IP, 40.50 ERA, 8.25 WHIP).
Insight: Happ (5-7, 4.56 ERA) is thought to be solidly in the Blue Jays rotation, but after last season's performance if a young guy shows up big in spring training, its possible Happ gets left behind.
 
8/12/2013 7:35:00 PM
Description: Toronto lefthander J.A. Happ has been placed on bereavement leave.

Description: Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ has been activated from the 60-day disabled list and is expected to start on Wednesday.
Insight: Happ hasn't pitched since being hit in the head by a line drive on May 7. He's made seven starts this season, going 2-2 with a 4.91 ERA and 1.55 WHIP and didn't look very good in three Triple-A rehab starts (6.75 ERA) so still has very little fantasy value.
 
7/13/2013 11:54:00 AM

5/9/2013 6:36:00 PM

Insight: Happ was hit by a line drive during Tuesday's start and had some bleeding from his ear. He didn't suffer a concussion and a CT scan showed no damage to his brain or spine, according to CBSSports.com. Happ also suffered the knee injury while falling after being struck by the ball.
 
5/8/2013 5:21:00 PM

Description: Toronto lefty J.A. Happ walked seven batters and was out of the game after 3 2/3 innings Thursday against Boston.

4/17/2013 10:04:00 PM
Description: Toronto lefty J.A. Happ allowed five earned runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox Wednesday.
Insight: Happ walked just one and struck out three, but he gave up a three-run homer in the second and a solo shot in the sixth. The lefty has a 5.06 ERA through three starts, though his 1.19 WHIP is solid.
 
4/6/2013 6:13:00 PM
Description: Toronto lefty J.A. Happ limited Boston to one hit in 5 1/3 scoreless innings Saturday to earn his first win of the season. He struck out six and walked three.
Insight: Happ had a 4.79 ERA last season but his FIP was 4.01 and he improved both his K/9 and BB/9 from the season before. He'll get plenty of run support and should be a decent fantasy option in deep leagues.
 
3/26/2013 6:59:00 PM
Description: Toronto lefty J.A. Happ will assume the fifth spot in Toronto's rotation following Ricky Romero's demotion to High-A on Tuesday.

Description: Blue Jays lefthander J.A. Happ is out for the year with a broken foot.
Insight: Happ's 2012 campaign ends with 10 wins, 11 losses and a 4.73 ERA. He did slightly better in his stint with Toronto (3-2, 4.46) than he did earlier in the year with the Astros (7-9, 4.83).
 
7/20/2012 2:25:00 PM
Description: Newly acquired J.A. Happ will begin his Blue Jays career out of the bullpen.
Insight: Happ is 7-9 with a 4.83 ERA and 1.447 WHIP. Neither is a great fantasy number, but he's expected to return to the starting rotation by the end of the month. Either Aaron Laffey, Carlos Villanueva or Brett Cecil will drop out when the change occurs.
