Ian Happ was presented with the opportunity to show what he could do with more regular playing time last season, and there appears to be significant power promise heading into 2021. He popped 12 homers in 57 games, and his 13.0 BB% helped him fashion a .361 OBP. That latter stat may be a lofty expectation over a full season this year, but he can be an above-average contributor in that regard if that is among the categories you are basing your drafting strategies on. The 27.3 K% points to the BA remaining mediocre at best. He does need to generate more of his better work against lefties, as he had one homer and two RBI in 48 at-bats vs. southpaws. It does appear David Ross will continue to give him the opportunities to improve against LHPs, and he will be Chicago's leadoff hitter based on his OBP skills. Happ lowered his Launch Angle to 10.3 from 13.7 last year, and his xBA jumped from .240 to .262 and the Hard Hit% leaped from 38.2 to 48.5. Happ seems to be trending towards a baseline of a batting average that won't be a major drag, while providing strong power and quality on-base skills. He could turn out to be a solid play for pop at an ADP of 162.
