  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Agrees to one-year deal

    Happ signed a one-year, $10.85 million deal with the Cubs on Friday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Happ's deal with the Cubs means he avoided arbitration and will now be a free agent following the 2023 season. He slashed .271/.342/.440 in the 2022 campaign, while accumulating 17 home runs and 72 RBI. The 28-year-old also went 9-for-13 on stolen base attempts. He projects to start in left field entering the year.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Three hits in win

    Happ went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Reds.

    Happ recorded his first three-hit game since Aug. 25 with his 42nd double of the season and two singles Sunday. Happ also recorded an RBI via a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the first inning to give him 72 on the season, a career high. Through 155 games this season, Happ is slashing .275/.347/.447.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Tallies two hits, two runs

    Happ went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Happ has been solid all season for the Cubs, as he's now batting .272, and he leads the team with 72 runs scored. He also paces the squad with 71 RBI, and his 17 home runs are good for third. Happ has cut down on strikeouts this year, which has helped him produce fairly consistently since Opening Day, and the .272 average would be a new career best.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Steals ninth base

    Happ went 2-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, a run scored and an RBI in an 8-3 win Sunday in Pittsburgh.

    Happ doubled in the fifth and drove in a run with a single, stole second and scored in the seventh. It was the ninth stolen base of the year for the Mt. Lebanon native and his second this month. He continues to dominate his hometown club and has a .316/.405/.558 line in 310 career plate appearances against the Pirates.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Takes deGrom deep in win

    Happ went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Mets.

    Happ got the second inning off with a bang as he took a 3-2 fastball from Jacob deGrom 407 feet to right field for his 17th long ball of the season. The solo shot got the Cubs on the board on their way to handing deGrom his second loss. Happ also recorded a base hit in the top of the fourth. The multi-hit effort was a positive sign for the switch hitter, as he had gone just 2-for-18 in his previous five games.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Doubles twice Saturday

    Happ went 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

    The Cubs had just seven hits and two runs, but Happ still managed to have a productive night. The outfielder has had a solid season with an .802 OPS and 65 RBI across 135 games, and he's managed to up his batting average to .274 after hitting just .226 in 2021. Chicago is in a rebuilding mode, and Happ and Willson Contreras (ankle) have emerged as their clear veteran leaders this year.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Riding pine Friday

    Happ isn't starting Friday against the Giants.

    Happ is getting a breather after he went 1-for-15 with a solo home run, a walk and four strikeouts over the last four games. Nelson Velazquez will take over in left field and bat seventh.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Hits 16th home run

    Happ went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Reds.

    Happ got the scoring started for Chicago in the first inning with his 16th home run of the season. With just 27 team games remaining, the outfielder seems unlikely to match the career-best 25 long balls he recorded last year. However, Happ has increased his average and OPS in 2022 compared to 2021, so he's arguably been a more complete offensive player.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Scores twice on two hits

    Happ went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Happ continued his strong recent play, as he's now batting .333 over his last 10 games with two home runs, five doubles and nine runs scored. The outfielder has been a bright spot for the rebuilding Cubs, boosting his OPS to a solid .810 mark with the two-hit performance. He should continue to produce from the heart of Chicago's order.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Scores twice in loss

    Happ went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's 9-7 loss to the Brewers.

    Happ keeps chugging along, as this was his third multi-hit effort in his last four games. He's easily set a new career high with 34 doubles this season, and his .279 batting average would be a new career best if it holds up. Happ has established himself as a fairly reliable, veteran presence in the middle of Chicago's lineup, giving him plenty of fantasy appeal the rest of the way.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Two-homer night

    Happ went 2-for-4 with a pair of two-run home runs in a 4-3 extra-inning win over the Brewers on Friday.

    Happ drove in all four of the Cubs' runs to give his team the close one-run victory. The two long balls give him 15 on the year to go along with 62 RBI. Happ's career-high RBI total came in 2017 when he accumulated 68. The 28-year-old left fielder is on pace to set a new career-best RBI mark with a little over a month remaining in the season.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Solo shot in loss

    Happ went 1-for-4 with one homer, one RBI and one run scored in Sunday's loss against the Brewers.

    Happ got the Cubs off to an early 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning against Brandon Woodruff, but it wasn't enough as the Cubs went on to lose 5-2. This was Happ's fourth round tripper in his last nine games and his 13th on the season. He now owns a .279/.353/.452 slash line and leads the Cubs in hits to go along with seven stolen bases.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Not included in Tuesday's lineup

    Happ is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

    Happ went 14-for-38 (.368) with three homers over his last 10 games, but manager David Ross decided to hold him out with the Cubs employing an all-righty lineup against Nationals lefty Patrick Corbin. Nelson Velazquez will take Happ's place in left field.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Goes deep twice Monday

    Happ went 2-for-3 with a walk and two solo home runs in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

    Happ wore out Washington starter Josiah Gray, taking the righty deep in the first and fifth innings. It was Happ's first game this year with multiple home runs. The Chicago outfielder now has 12 long balls this season to go with a strong .815 OPS. Happ perhaps surprisingly stayed put at the trade headline, and he seems primed to finish the year strong for the Cubs.
