  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Steal, RBI in loss

    Happ went 1-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Rays.

    Happ drove in Nico Hoerner with an RBI single in the first inning to open the scoring before swiping his fifth bag of the year. The 28-year-old Happ is now 3-for-7 in his last two games after going through a 4-for-31 slump over his previous nine contests.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Reaches three times Tuesday

    Happ went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Rays.

    Neither team got much going on offense, but Happ was still able to contribute. The outfielder continues to be a solid fantasy asset with an .818 OPS across 53 games. That would be his best mark since the shortened 2020 campaign, when Happ recorded an .866 OPS over 57 games. His counting stats haven't been great this year with four home runs, 18 runs scored and 21 RBI, though they'll likely trend upward if he continues to make consistent contact.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Strong effort in easy win

    Happ went 2-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI in Wednesday's 12-2 win over the Athletics.

    Happ was in the middle of Chicago's offensive outburst as the No. 3 hitter, and he boosted his OPS to a robust .961 with the strong performance. The 11-6 Cubs are clicking on offense right now, with newcomers Dansby Swanson and Cody Bellinger providing a nice jolt. This should benefit Happ, as there will be plenty of chances for the outfielder to score runs and drive in others moving forward given his prominent spot in the lineup.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Has perfect game at plate

    Happ went 4-for-4 with two doubles, one home run, three RBI, and a stolen base in Friday's 8-2 win over the Dodgers.

The outfielder now has base knocks in nine of his 12 games played this year, hitting to the tune of a .349 batting average thus far. While this number isn't sustainable, fantasy managers will hope the veteran can stay consistent at the plate.

    Happ and the Cubs agreed Wednesday on a three-year, $61 million contract extension, Michael Cerami of reports.

    Happ had been set to hit free agency after this season, but his new deal -- which contains no player or team options -- ties him to the Cubs through the end of the 2026 campaign. The 28-year-old sports a .253/.338/.440 batting line since the beginning of the 2021 season, which includes a .981 OPS thus far in 2023. Happ also won a Gold Glove in left field in 2022.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Hits first home run

    Happ went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Brewers.

    Happ is off to a good start early in 2023, as he's gone 3-for-6 across two games with the home run. The outfielder hit 17 long balls and tallied a career-best 72 RBI last season, and he should once again be one of Chicago's top offensive performers this year from the middle of the lineup.

    Happ went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Brewers.

    Dansby Swanson starred for the Cubs with three hits in his team debut, but Happ was also effective from the No. 3 spot in the lineup. The outfielder batted a career-best .271 last season, which coincided with a career-low 23.2 percent strikeout rate. If Happ continues to show improved plate discipline, including taking walks, he should be in for another strong campaign in 2023.

    Happ hit his first Cactus League home run in 22 at-bats, and he's now batting a robust .364 this spring with a 1.007 OPS. The outfielder delivered 17 long balls and a .782 OPS for the Cubs last season, and he's primed to serve as a key offensive piece for the team again in 2023.
