Mariners starter J.A. Happ handed first defeat on Friday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/2015) Mariners starter J.A. Happ (0-1) suffered his first loss of the season on Friday, allowing two runs on five hits in seven innings against the Rangers.

Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos touched Happ for a home run.

Happ will look to even his record in his next start Wednesday against the Astros.


J.A. Happ gets no decision in Mariners win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Mariners starter J.A. Happ pitched 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision in Saturday's 5-4 win over the A's.

"That was a much-needed start, I can tell you that," manager Lloyd McClendon said after the game, per MLB.com. "Our bullpen had been a little bit overworked to that point. For him to come out and give us those innings was special for us."

Happ gave up two runs on seven hits and didn't walk a batter. He struck out one and threw 54 strikes in 82 pitches.

"I thought his secondary stuff was very good," McClendon said. "He threw some good changeups, good breaking balls. His fastball was 92-93. He did a nice job. I think they found holes [in the seventh]. His velocity didn't fade. He made quality pitches. That's just baseball."

Happ's next start will be Friday against the Rangers and Yovani Gallardo.

Happ was expected to be either the fourth or fifth starter in the rotation.


Mariners P J.A. Happ throws four scoreless innings


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) Mariners pitcher J.A. Happ pitched four scoreless innings in a 5-4 victory over the Rockies.

Happ, 32, struggled his last two starts. On Friday, he allowed only two hits and two walks with four strikeouts on 69 pitches, lowering his ERA to 6.11 this spring. He is slated as the fourth or fifth starter in the Mariners' rotation. 


Mariners pitcher J.A. Happ hit hard again in start Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Mariners pitcher J.A. Happ gave five runs on 11 hits in five innings of work Sunday against the Padres in his second consecutive rough outing.

"I was being way too tentative early on," Happ said to MLB.com. "I just wasn't finishing and as aggressive as I was later in the game. Maybe trying to be a little too fine after the previous outing. I think if I throw like I did the second part of that game, I'll be OK."

Happ, who is expected to be the fourth starter in Seattle's rotation, is now 1-3 this spring with a 7.90 ERA.


Mariners pitcher J.A. Happ gets torched in outing Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Mariners pitcher J.A. Happ continued to struggle Tuesday, throwing 80 pitches over 3 2/3 innings. Happ allowed five earned runs, six total, on eight hits, including one home run, with three walks and three strikeouts.

The tough day on the hill pushed his spring training ERA to 7.27.

"The result was ugly," said Happ to MLB.com. "They poked a few through and then got the big hit. I don't think it was an absolute disaster. I certainly could have been sharper, and my offspeed and breaking ball wasn't there today. But I got my pitches in."

Manager Lloyd McClendon knows it was a struggle for Happ Tuesday.

"He probably fatigued a little bit, but this is spring training," McClendon said. "He didn't look good. But he got the pitch count up to 80, which was good. That's the positive part of it. It's Spring Training. It wasn't very pretty. I think we all know he's better than that."
