Ian Happ News
Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ was able to reach base safely four times during Sunday's game against the New York Yankees. He started off the game with a no-doubt home run, but things quickly turned ugly for Chicago. The Cubs ended up taking an early lead, but dropped this game 18-4. Happ finished the game 3-for-3 and was a double shy of hitting for the cycle. The 27-year-old outfielder is hitting .275/.378/.466 with seven home runs and 30 RBI this season. He continues to be one of the few bright spots for the Cubs this season.
Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The switch-hitting outfielder will take a routine day off here. Patrick Wisdom will bat sixth and play left field against left-hander Madison Bumgarner. This isn't a favorable spot for Wisdom, but he certainly has the power to go deep at any point. Fantasy managers might want to look elsewhere for help since Bumgarner has been pitching well this season.
Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ will start Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the bench, according to MLB.com. Happ is off to a good start this season, slashing .292/.416/.417 with two home runs, 12 runs, and 11 RBI. Instead, the Cubs will deploy Michael Hermosillo in left field, batting eighth. In his limited MLB experience, the 27-year-old hasn't shown an ability to hit with his career .174 batting average and .589 OPS. Fantasy managers should leave him on the waiver wire in all formats, as there are better options available.
Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ started slowly in 2021, slashing .180/.294/.326 from April-July, including a trip to the injured list in May due to a left rib contusion. He turned it up a notch once the calendar flipped to August, slashing .288/.363/.581 with 15 home runs, 40 RBI, and eight stolen bases over his last 55 games. It was a tale of two halves for the Cubs outfielder, but his season stats overall are in line with his previous years. The 27-year-old is a streaky hitter and will need to reduce his 30.8 career K% (ninth percentile) to have that breakout season finally. He has the upside to swipe 10-15 bags as his 27.7 sprint speed ranked in the 67th percentile. ATC/Cutter comes close to this estimate and predicts Happ will steal eight bases in 2022. Overall, ATC projects Happ to slash .241/.337/.456 with 25 home runs, 70 RBI, 68 runs scored. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, ATC/Cutter's projections make him above fair value at his ADP of 245. If Happ can build on last season's second-half success, he could join the 25/10 club for the first time in his career and become a tremendous value pick in the mid-late rounds of 2022 fantasy drafts.
