The undervalued Happ massively out-performed his 2018 draft pick despite posting his highest ERA (3.65) since 2014. He now owns a 3.49 ERA and 8.45 K/9 over those past four seasons, and yet many drafters have scoffed at him going around the pick-150 range. Seems like a reasonable price for someone who accompanied his career-high 193 strikeouts with a career-high 10.3% swinging-strike rate and career-low 78.3% contact rate. He looked comfortable in pinstripes (2.69 ERA, 1.05 WHIP) and could once again reap the rewards of run support to a crooked wins tally. Don't run away just because the southpaw is 36.

J.A. Happ officially inks two-year deal with Yankees

J.A. Happ and the Yankees are officially reunited on a two-year deal with an option for a third.

Fantasy Impact

Happ returns to New York where he went 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 2018 after being acquired from Toronto mid season. He should see continued success this year with great run support and except for Boston, a pretty weak division.
