Mariners pitcher J.A. Happ working on his changeup
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(11:31 am ET) Mariners pitcher J.A. Happ is working on his changeup and hoping to use it more this season, pitching coach Rick Waits said Saturday.
Happ went 11-11 with a 4.22 ERA in 158 innings pitched in 2014 with 133 strikeouts.
M's McClendon: We didn't acquire J.A. Happ to pitch out of the 'pen
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon announced Thursday pitcher J.A. Happ, who was acquired in a December trade from Toronto, will be in the rotation.
"We didn't acquire Happ to pitch out of the bullpen. We can put that to rest," he said. "He pitched in two small ballparks. I think coming to Seattle will help him immensely."
Happ is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in two career starts at Safeco Field.
Blue Jays acquire Michael Saunders from Mariners
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/3/14) The Blue Jays have acquired outfielder Michael Saunders from the Mariners for pitcher J.A. Happ, according to ESPN. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed the deal.
The 28-year-old Saunders is coming off a season in which he hit .273/.341/.450 over 231 at-bats. He had been mentioned as a popular trade candidate all offseason. Saunders is entering his second year of arbitration, and is set to become a free-agent following the 2016 season.
Happ, 32, posted a 4.22 ERA over 158 innings with Toronto. The Blue Jays picked up his $6.7 million option earlier in the offseason. He'll be a free-agent at the end of the year.
Jays' GM: Happ penciled in as No. 5 SP, but Sanchez will be SP depth
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/20/14) Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday starting pitcher J.A. Happ is penciled in to the final spot in the team's rotation as of late November, according to MLB Network Radio.
However, he added the team wants prospect Aaron Sanchez to remain stretched out as a starter in the spring.
Blue Jays exercise options on J.A. Happ, Josh Thole
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/1/14) The Blue Jays have exercised the 2015 options on pitcher J.A. Happ and catcher Josh Thole, Sportsnet.ca reports.
Happ will earn $6.7 million in 2015 as the team opted to retain him rather than pay a $200,000 buyout. Thole is set to make $1.75 million next season.
|2014 summary: Since nearly winning NL Rookie of the Year in 2009, J.A. Happ has done his best to pitch his way out of the league, and looking at the final numbers, last year was no exception. He wasn't so bad to end the year, though, compiling a 3.56 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings in 13 starts, showing he may still have something to work with.|
Playing time status: Happ has a believer in the Mariners, who acquired him from the Blue Jays for Michael Saunders this offseason with the intention of making him their fifth starter. Technically, he, Taijuan Walker, Roenis Elias and Erasmo Ramirez are competing for the final two spots, but he appears to have the edge.
2015 outlook: Particularly because he's going from a pitcher's park to a hitter's park, you'll hear some talk of Happ being a Fantasy sleeper this year, kind of like the hitter going the other way, Saunders. But it's clearly on the lower end of the spectrum, especially as deep as starting pitcher is now. If you draft him, it should be in an AL-only league, and even then, it should be late.
