J.A. Happ strikes out five in spring game on Monday

J.A. Happ pitched four innings of one-run ball, giving up a solo home run, and struck out five versus the Phillies on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Following injuries to James Paxton (back) and Luis Severino (elbow), Happ is lined up to be the Yankees' third starter to open the season in spite of a rough 2019 in which he finished with a 4.91 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. Happ is only worth owning in deeper fantasy formats.

J.A. Happ gives up one run in bulk relief appearance

J.A. Happ gave up one run on four hits with one walk and six strikeouts over five innings as the Yankees lost to the Rays on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Jonathan Loaisiga opened the game and pitched the first inning for the Yankees before Happ came on in the second. It is doubtful that the veteran starter pitches again in the regular season and ends with a 12-8 record with a 4.91 ERA and 1.30 WHIP.

J.A. Happ gives up two runs in no-decision on Friday

J.A. Happ allowed two runs on four hits with no walks and four strikeouts across 5 1/3 innings during a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Happ had his start delayed as he is dealing with lingering biceps tendinitis but he looked fine on Friday. Happ is 12-8 with a 5.01 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 134 strikeouts in 156 1/3 innings this season. He is scheduled to make his last regular-season start at the Rays on Wednesday.

J.A. Happ (biceps) received a cortisone shot Friday and is expected to start Thursday against the Angels, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Fantasy Impact

Happ has evidently been dealing with tendinitis in his left biceps for a while and it appears he will attempt to keep pitching through it. Keep an eye on updates to ensure Happ will be ready to make his next start.
