J.A. Happ frustrated with his role in Toronto

9 Comments

J.A. Happ was one of several odd men out after the Blue Jays acquired R.A. Dickey, Mark Buehrle, and Josh Johnson via trades with the Mets and Marlins. The 30-year-old lefty is on the outside looking in and the subject of many trade rumors, which has made him unhappy.

Happ has a career 4.19 ERA in 590 career innings, including a 5.08 ERA over the last two seasons with the Astros and Blue Jays. The Jays will decide, if Happ is not traded, whether he is better suited to start the season in the bullpen as a long reliever or with Triple-A Buffalo in the starting rotation.
