July 29 9:16 PM PT10:16 PM MT11:16 PM CT12:16 AM ET0:16 ET4:16 GMT12:16 9:16 PM MST11:16 PM EST11:46 PM VEN8:16 UAE11:16 PM CT-J.A. Happ fell to 3-8, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks in 6.0 innings, as the Toronto Blue Jays lost to the Los Angeles Angels 7-2 on Friday.

July 23 2:45 PM PT3:45 PM MT4:45 PM CT5:45 PM ET17:45 ET21:45 GMT5:45 2:45 PM MST4:45 PM EST5:15 PM VEN1:45 UAE (+1)4:45 PM CT-J.A. Happ fell to 3-7, allowing seven runs on nine hits and three walks in 6.0 innings, as the Toronto Blue Jays lost to the Cleveland Indians 8-1 on Sunday. Happ struck out three, ending the game with a 4.13 ERA and 1.32 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Though a lack of offensive support is a big reason why Happ has won just once in his last six starts, this loss was largely of his own doing. The 20-game winner from 2016 hasn't been very good lately, having allowed six homers in 15 innings while going 0-2 with a 6.60 ERA over his last three outings.
July 19 7:30 AM PT8:30 AM MT9:30 AM CT10:30 AM ET10:30 ET14:30 GMT22:30 7:30 AM MST9:30 AM EST10:00 AM VEN18:30 UAE9:30 AM CT-J.A. Happ allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Toronto Blue Jays lost to the Boston Red Sox 5-4 on Tuesday. Happ struck out two, ending the game with a 3.55 ERA and 1.26 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Happ made it through his last four starts in June without allowing a homer, but he's given up six in his last three starts, including a pair Tuesday.

Happ struck out three, ending the game with a 3.54 ERA and 1.25 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Despite an overall rough start, Happ is 1-2 with a 2.35 ERA in his last four starts.
July 4 1:58 PM PT2:58 PM MT3:58 PM CT4:58 PM ET16:58 ET20:58 GMT4:58 1:58 PM MST3:58 PM EST4:28 PM VEN0:58 UAE (+1)3:58 PM CT-J.A.

Happ struck out six, ending the game with a 3.47 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: A 20-game winner last year, Happ is now 3-1 with a 1.99 ERA in his past five starts.
June 30 7:39 AM PT8:39 AM MT9:39 AM CT10:39 AM ET10:39 ET14:39 GMT22:39 7:39 AM MST9:39 AM EST10:09 AM VEN18:39 UAE9:39 AM CT-J.A.

Happ struck out two, ending the game with a 3.71 ERA and 1.18 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Happ didn't get any offensive support but did turn in a fourth consecutive quality start. The 2016 20-game winner is 2-1 with a 2.10 ERA over that stretch and hasn't allowed a home run in any of those outings, which bodes well for his chances when he faces the power-hitting Yankees on the road Tuesday.
June 24 9:19 PM PT10:19 PM MT11:19 PM CT12:19 AM ET0:19 ET4:19 GMT12:19 9:19 PM MST11:19 PM EST11:49 PM VEN8:19 UAE11:19 PM CT-Happ allowed one run on four hits in 6.2 innings as the Toronto Blue Jays lost to the Kansas City Royals 5-4 on Friday.

Happ struck out nine, ending the game with a 4.26 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The 20-game winner from a year ago appears to be rounding into form. After going 0-4 with a 5.33 ERA over his first five starts and missing time with a sore elbow, Happ has yielded three runs across 12 2/3 innings in winning his last two assignments.
June 11 5:02 PM PT6:02 PM MT7:02 PM CT8:02 PM ET20:02 ET0:02 GMT8:02 5:02 PM MST7:02 PM EST7:32 PM VEN4:02 UAE (+1)7:02 PM CT-J.A.

May 30 7:11 PM PT8:11 PM MT9:11 PM CT10:11 PM ET22:11 ET2:11 GMT10:11 7:11 PM MST9:11 PM EST9:41 PM VEN6:11 UAE (+1)9:11 PM CT-J.A. Happ allowed two runs on three hits and three walks in 4.0 innings as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Cincinnati Reds 6-4 on Tuesday.

Analysis: Happ made his first start since April 16 after recovering from elbow inflammation. He threw 81 pitches and allowed two homers.
Apr. 16 12:13 PM PT1:13 PM MT2:13 PM CT3:13 PM ET15:13 ET19:13 GMT3:13 12:13 PM MST2:13 PM EST2:43 PM VEN23:13 UAE2:13 PM CT-Happ will return Tuesday to start against the Reds after missing about six weeks with inflammation in his pitching elbow.
Analysis: Happ struggled in his only rehab start, giving up three runs and seven hits in three innings for Class-A Dunedin on Thursday. However, the Blue Jays feel he's ready to go after a side session Sunday, though he is expected to be on a pitch count. Happ dropped his first three starts this season behind a 4.50 ERA after going 20-4 with a 3.18 ERA in 2016.
