|J.A. Happ can't pick up a quality start Sunday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/27/14) Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ couldn’t pick up a quality start Sunday against the Yankees.
Happ gave up three runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out three and walked two. Happ started out well, but seemed to tire as the game progressed. He tossed four scoreless innings of work before the Yankees were able to scratch out a run against him. Home runs became an issue in the fifth. Happ gave up two solo shots during the inning. He came out for the sixth, but immediately put two men on. After he was pulled from the game, one run came around to score. That run was charged to Happ.
The Blue Jays managed to battle back, giving Happ the no-decision. His next start will come against the Astros.

(7/22/14) Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ earned a win Tuesday, giving up seven hits and one walk in six scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 7-3 victory over the Red Sox.
Happ (8-5) hadn't secured a win since holding the White Sox scoreless in 7 2/3 innings on June 26, but he was able to keep Boston at bay one night after they racked up 14 runs in the series opener. He owns a 4.55 ERA and 68:34 K:BB ratio in 83 innings. Happ is slated to take on the Yankees Sunday.
|J.A. Happ gives up five runs in loss vs. Angels |

(7/8/14) Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ took a loss Monday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Angels.
Happ (7-5) took a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the fifth before getting into trouble, loading the bases with no outs then allowing three runs to cross the plate on two singles and a sacrifice fly. He was then removed, and the bullpen allowed one of the inherited runners to score. It was the third time in Happ's last six starts that he failed to complete five innings. Happ owns a 4.72 ERA and 63:33 K:BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Rays Sunday.
|J.A. Happ bounces back for decent outing in no-decision |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/2/14) Left-hander J.A. Happ locked in after a rocky start Wednesday against the visiting Brewers, allowing his Blue Jays to stay in the game and eventually win.
Happ surrendered four runs in the first three innings, including a three-run third in which Ryan Braun slammed a two-run triple and rode home on a sacrifice fly. But he retired 12 in a row and 14 of 15 before being removed in a tie game. He finished with no walks and four strikeouts.
That alone is remarkable considered the control problems Happ has battled throughout his career. He entered having walked 30 in 65 innings. He will attempt to maintain that control Monday against the Angels.
|J.A. Happ finished 2013 with a 4.56 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 7.5 K/9 in a largely uneven, injury-interrupted season. Happ finished April with a 3.86 ERA and posted a 2.97 ERA in six September starts. But, in between, he gave up 24 earned runs in seven games. Some leeway can be given for his last start before injury (four runs in 1 1/3 IP) and his first start after injury (seven runs in four innings), but Happ is still an erratic 31-year-old who doesn't get enough strikeouts to make up for the yo-yoing of his ratios. Additionally, there's no guarantee that Happ will be in the 2014 rotation (although it seems likely he will be), with several shelved and recovering pitchers coming back from their own injuries. If he's in the rotation, Happ is a late-round gamble in AL-only formats.
