J.A. Happ tests positive for COVID-19 during intaking

Twins LHP J.A. Happ tested positive for COVID-19 during his intake on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Happ is asymptomatic, but his start to Spring Training will be delayed. It’s unclear at this time when Happ will rejoin his teammates. The left-hander signed a one-year deal with the Twins during the offseason. Happ owned a 3.47 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and a 42:15 K:BB ratio across 49 1/3 innings for the Yankees in 2020. The 38-year-old is expected to be in the middle of the Twins rotation for 2021.

J.A. Happ Rumor: Angels among interested teams

J.A. Happ is drawing interest from the Los Angeles of Anaheim, amongst other teams, according to Jon Moros of MLB Network.

Fantasy Impact

Morosi also mentioned this isn't a surprising piece of news as new Angels GM Perry Minasian was working in the Blue Jays front office when Toronto acquired Happ on several different occasions. The 38-year old left-hander registered a 3.47 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and a 42:15 K/BB ratio across 49 1/3 innings for the Yankees last season.

J.A. Happ has 2021 option declined by Yankees

The Yankees declined J.A. Happ's $17 million 2021 option.

Fantasy Impact

This was a pretty easy call for New York despite Happ pitching well in 2020. The 38-year-old southpaw posted a 3.47 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP in nine starts. He'll likely receive a one-year contract this offseason.
