Happ Powers Cubs to Narrow Victory Over Giants

Ian Happ went 2-for-4 in the Cubs' 6-5 win over the Giants, delivering a home run, a double, one run scored, and one RBI.

Fantasy Impact

This performance showcased Happ's ability to contribute significantly in power categories, though his season-long batting average of .234 remains a concern for fantasy managers. Despite the low average, Happ's consistent power production, evidenced by his nine homers and 37 RBI through 69 games, keeps him relevant in fantasy lineups. His .331 wOBA indicates a decent offensive contribution, but the high strikeout rate of 0.272 could be a drag on his overall value. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his performance, especially in leagues that value extra-base hits and RBI.

Ian Happ Delivers Power, But Cubs Fall Short

Ian Happ went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Cubs' narrow 7-6 loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included a walk and he scored once himself. Despite the Cubs' defeat, Happ's ability to drive in runs and his knack for getting on base were bright spots. His season has been a bit of a struggle with a batting average of just .229, but his power numbers are respectable, with eight homers now on the year. Fantasy managers should note that while his average might be a drag, his ability to contribute in home runs, RBI, and walks can still make him a valuable asset in deeper leagues or formats that reward walks and on-base percentage.

Ian Happ powers Cubs past Cardinals with key homer

Ian Happ made a significant impact in the Cubs' 5-1 victory over the Cardinals, going 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, and a run scored.

Fantasy Impact

His performance also included a walk and a strikeout. Despite a challenging season with a batting average of just .218, Happ's ability to drive in runs and hit for power occasionally shines through, as evidenced by his seven home runs and 33 RBI over 65 games. His on-base skills remain intact, highlighted by a decent walk rate of .128. However, his high strikeout rate of .270 continues to be a concern for fantasy managers. Moving forward, while Happ's inconsistency might deter some, his power and RBI potential could make him a valuable asset in deeper leagues or formats that reward walks and extra-base hits.

Ian Happ homers, but Cubs fall short against Reds

Ian Happ went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Cubs' 5-4 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the defeat, Happ's performance was a bright spot, adding a walk to his stat line for the day. While Happ's season batting average remains a modest .223, his ability to contribute power and walks keeps him relevant in fantasy formats that value on-base percentage and power metrics. His .310 wOBA indicates some level of production, but fantasy managers should remain cautious due to his high strikeout rate and relatively low batting average.

Happ Homers, But Cubs Fall to Brewers 10-6

Ian Happ went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the Cubs' 10-6 loss to the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the team's defeat, Happ's performance was a bright spot as he contributed a home run and scored twice. This season, Happ has struggled with a batting average of just .226 and a high strikeout rate of 0.278, but his power numbers are slowly improving, with five homers now on the year. His wOBA of .309 suggests some potential for improvement, but fantasy managers should remain cautious given his inconsistency at the plate. Today's game could be a sign of turning things around, but it's best to keep expectations tempered given his overall performance this season.
