Blue Jays | J.A. Happ earns ninth victory

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:19:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ (9-3) allowed two runs on six hits over five innings in a victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, June 22, with four walks and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Although Happ's line looked decent, it marked just the third time in 15 starts this year where he was unable to make it into the seventh inning. He has a somewhat unfavorable matchup versus the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in his next outing Tuesday, June 28.

Blue Jays | J.A. Happ defeats Phils Thursday

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 19:28:20 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ (8-3) allowed one unearned run on three hits over seven innings in a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, June 16, with two walks and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Happ had allowed 10 runs over 12 innings in his previous two starts but displayed the form that made him so successful over the first two months of the season in Thursday's outing. His next scheduled start will come versus the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, June 22, and he should be viewed as a viable pitching option in all fantasy formats versus most opponents.

Blue Jays | JA Happ has an off night

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 21:28:49 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ allowed six earned runs, six hits and two walks over five innings in a loss Monday, June 6, against the Detroit Tigers. All but two of his 12 outings have been quality starts.

Fantasy Tip: Chalk it up as one bad start for Happ, who has been good more often than not. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all AL-only fantasy formats, deeper mixed leagues and DFS play, although certainly not Monday.

Yankees | Brett Gardner not starting Tuesday

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:25:14 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31, against the Toronto Blue Jays. OF Aaron Hicks will start and bat ninth against Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner is out due to the traditional lefty vs. lefty matchup, so bench him accordingly for the evening. Hicks carries no fantasy value due to his weak bat (.133 average in the past week).

Blue Jays | J.A. Happ beats Yanks for sixth W

Thu, 26 May 2016 17:02:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ improved to 6-2 after beating the New York Yankees Thursday, May 26. The southpaw worked seven sharp innings, yielding only one run on three hits and three walks, while striking out five.

Fantasy Tip: Happ should be drawing some serious All-Star consideration, as this was his ninth quality start in 10 tries. He's also gone at least six innings in all but one of his assignments. The left-hander may not rack up as many strikeouts as he used to, but he's proving to be a reliable arm for fantasy teams of all formats. He'll keep claiming wins, too, being able to lean on one of the best offenses in the game.

Blue Jays | J.A. Happ has tough outing

Mon, 16 May 2016 21:50:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ allowed eight runs on seven hits in two innings against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, May 16, to suffer his first loss of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Happ pitched very well before his start Monday and allowed three runs or fewer in each of his first seven starts. He is scheduled to face the Minnesota Twins in his next start and should be a solid starting option in most leagues.

Blue Jays | J.A. Happ improves to 5-0

Tue, 10 May 2016 23:44:46 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ allowed five hits and three walks while fanning five in 8 2/3 shutout innings to improve to 5-0 on the season against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: Happ has a 2.05 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP, but his 5.59 K/9 is really low. His success is probably not sustainable, and if you can flip him at his peak, it's advisable to do so.

Blue Jays | Another strong outing for J.A. Happ

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 13:32:46 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ was brutally efficient yet again Saturday, April 23, needing only 92 pitches over seven innings to post his third win in as many starts.

Fantasy Tip: Happ allowed a season-high three runs Saturday and is averaging only half a strikeout per inning for the season, but owners have to be pleased with his contributions in just about every other area. The 33-year-old is a strong candidate for 15 wins this season considering the offense he has supporting him. While he seems to be pitching more to contact this year, his strikeouts should pick up soon; Happ fanned at least six batters eight times in 11 starts after he was acquired by the Pittsburgh Pirates last July.
