J.A. Happ registers quality start in win over Brewers on Thursday

J.A. Happ fired 6 1/3 innings on Thursday, allowing nine hits and three runs while striking out seven in a 4-3 win over the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Happ was an afterthought when the Cardinals acquired him at the trade deadline, but the 38-year-old southpaw has gone 5-2 with a 4.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 11 starts with St. Louis, proving to be a reliable option in their starting rotation over the past two months (and solid streaming option in fantasy as well).

J.A. Happ fired four scoreless innings in the first game of the Cardinals doubleheader on Friday, allowing just two hits to go along with four walks while striking out six in a no-decision as the Cardinals extended their winning streak with a win over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Happ threw 74 pitches and was able to escape a bases-loaded jam in the fourth inning before being lifted for a pinch-hitter the following inning. He owns a 3.97 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in his tenure with St. Louis heading into his final regular season start next week against the Brewers.

J.A. Happ silences Reds over 5 1/3 innings in win on Sunday

J.A. Happ was effective on Sunday, holding a potent Reds lineup to just two hits and a walk across 5 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out four batters.

Fantasy Impact

Happ improves to 4-2 in his tenure with St. Louis, with a solid-yet-unspectacular 4.08 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. The 38-year-old will get the Padres next weekend, in another avoidable matchup.

J.A. Happ gives up four runs in loss to Dodgers on Tuesday

J.A. Happ surrendered seven hits and four runs across five innings in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact

Happ gave up a solo home run to Albert Pujols in the first inning - much to the delight of the St. Louis crowd - and later gave up a solo homer to Justin Turner in the fifth inning. Happ's ERA (4.72) and WHIP (1.34) have predictably blown back up after having success in multiple starts against the weak-hitting Pirates in August. Happ has another avoidable matchup this weekend against the Reds.
