Left handed started J.A. Happ was tendered a contract so he’ll be one of the guys the Astros have to talk to or end up going to the arbitration table with. Happ had a rough year with a 6-15 record and a 5.35 ERA. Part of the Roy Oswalt trade, Happ’s last solid season was 2009 when he went 12-4 for the Phillies with a 2.93 ERA.
He did show some improvement last in the season. The Astros gave him a spell at Triple-A and when he came back, he went 2-1 with a 2.43 ERA in six starts. He’s still a lock for the rotation, but he also has to show us some stuff this year if the Astros are going to make him a long term option.
