  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Triples in Friday win

    Happ went 1-for-4 with a walk, a triple, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 9-7 win over the Dodgers.

    Batting leadoff for the fifth time in seven games, Happ served as an effective tablesetter, and he recorded his first triple of the season as well. The outfielder is in a good position to produce atop a potent Chicago lineup, which could allow him to surpass the career-high 86 runs he recorded last season. Happ now has six runs scored so far this year.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Reaches base five times

    Happ went 4-for-5 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Rangers.

    Happ was able to reach base five times Sunday, including with an RBI-double in the fourth inning. He has now reached base in each of the first three games of the season, going 5-for-12 with a double, two RBI, a run scored and two walks.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Back in lineup for exhibition

    Happ (hamstring) will start in left field and bat leadoff in Monday's Cactus League game against the Cardinals.

    Happ will be making his fourth start in eight days but just his third in left field since he was shut down for a little over two weeks earlier this month due to a left hamstring strain. Following Happ's most recent start this past Thursday, manager Craig Counsell said that the outfielder had plateaued in his recovery from the hamstring strain, but Happ's presence in the lineup four days later suggests he's still on track to be ready to go for Thursday's season opener versus the Rangers. The Cubs could continue to exercise some caution with Happ early in the season by giving him more starts as a designated hitter rather than a left fielder, and the hamstring issue may naturally result in him being less active as a base stealer after he pilfered a career-high 14 bags in 2023.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Hamstring strain lingers

    Manager Craig Counsell revealed Saturday that Happ's recovery from a left hamstring injury has plateaued and that he will be held out of the spring lineup until Monday's exhibition against the Cardinals, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Happ has gone hitless over his last two spring training games and is slashing .111/.158/.167 with one RBI over 18 at-bats. Counsell said that Happ's availability for Opening Day is not in jeopardy "right now," but the outfielder will sit out for the rest of the weekend.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Starting in left field

    Happ (hamstring) is starting in left field and batting sixth in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks.

    The 29-year-old started at designated hitter Sunday in his first Cactus League action since Feb. 29 due to a hamstring strain, and he's now back to playing the outfield. Happ will get in a few games during the final week of spring training and should be ready to go for Opening Day next week.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Back in lineup at DH

    Happ (hamstring) will serve as the Cubs' designated hitter and leadoff batter in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Rangers.

    Happ will return to the lineup for the first time since Feb. 29 after missing the past two and a half weeks while recovering from a right hamstring strain. The Cubs will ease Happ back into the mix in a non-defensive role, but assuming he's able to resume patrolling left field at some point later this week, he should be ready to handle an everyday role when the team opens its season March 28 in Texas.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Remains on track for Opening Day

    Cubs manager Craig Counsell said Wednesday that Happ (hamstring) remains on track to be ready for Opening Day, Jared Wyllys of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Happ has been held out of spring games all month with a left hamstring injury, and it's not clear when he might return. However, Counsell insists the club is just being careful, adding that Happ should be ready to go for the season-opening game versus the Rangers on March 28.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Takes BP

    Happ (hamstring) was able to take part in batting practice Wednesday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Stepping in to face live pitching is a promising sign that Happ is making progress in his recovery from a left hamstring strain, though the real test for the outfielder will come when he starts running the bases at full speed. Though Happ doesn't appear particularly close to drawing back into the Cubs' Cactus League lineup, the team is still optimistic that the 29-year-old will be ready to go by the time Opening Day arrives.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Resumes some baseball activity

    Happ (hamstring) has resumed some light baseball activity, though the Cubs are being cautious with the outfielder leading up to the regular season, MLB.com reports.

    Happ may not see much more Cactus League action, but it seems like he should be fine for the start of the regular season even if he only appears in a few more exhibition games. "The most important thing is that we just get Ian enough at-bats before Opening Day to be in a good spot offensively," manager Craig Counsell said. The veteran played in 158 games each of the last two years and should take on a similar workload in 2024 if he can stay healthy.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Dealing with hamstring strain

    Manager Craig Counsell revealed Saturday that Happ has a mild left hamstring strain, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Counsell is optimistic that Happ will be ready for Opening Day, but the outfielder has no timeline to return to spring training games. Happ slashed .248/.360/.431 with 21 home runs and a career-high 84 RBI over 691 plate appearances in 2023.
