  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Out of lineup Saturday

    Happ isn't in the Cubs' lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

    Happ will sit down Saturday despite going 4-for-11 with three doubles and a run scored during Chicago's previous series against Atlanta. Mike Tauchman will fill the void in left field, allowing Christopher Morel to serve as the Cubs' designated hitter while Patrick Wisdom starts at third base.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Registers steal

    Happ went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's 3-0 loss to Atlanta.

    Happ is batting just .221 (15-for-68) in May, but he's also recorded both of his steals for the year this month. The veteran outfielder has a career-worst .652 OPS and .218 batting average over 46 contests while adding two home runs, 14 RBI and 23 runs scored. While he's struggling to find a rhythm at the plate, Happ continues to hold down a starting job in left field.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Taking seat Tuesday

    Happ is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Atlanta.

    The switch hitter is better from the left side of the plate, so it makes sense to give him a breather as Atlanta sends southpaw Chris Sale to the hill. Mike Tauchman will occupy left field for the Cubs.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Absent from lineup again

    Happ is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Atlanta, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Happ is on the bench for the second game in a row, so he could be dealing with an unreported injury. Mike Tauchman will cover left field in Happ's stead Wednesday.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Productive in Friday's win

    Happ went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 7-2 win over the Pirates.

    Happ is off to a bit of a slow start this season, as he's batting just .231 overall with a .661 OPS, but he's been better in May. The outfielder is batting .281 this month with a .707 OPS. What's keeping him from really taking off is a lack of power. Happ is still stuck on just one home run through 36 games after clubbing 21 long balls last year.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Back in action Tuesday

    Happ (hamstring) is starting in left field and batting second Tuesday against the Astros, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The 29-year-old sat out Saturday and Sunday with hamstring soreness after exiting Friday's contest, but he's ready to retake the field following Monday's team off day. Happ has been in a slump over his past nine games, going 4-for-35 after he posted a .933 OPS in his first 40 at-bats of the campaign.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Not starting Sunday

    Happ (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Happ was removed from Friday's game against Miami due to left hamstring tightness, and he didn't play in either of the doubleheader games Saturday. In Happ's absence, Alexander Canario will start again in left field and bat ninth against Marlins right-hander Edward Cabrera. Happ did note before Sunday's game that he is available off the bench and believes he'll be ready for Tuesday's series opener against the Astros, per Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Dealing with hamstring tightness

    Happ was removed from Friday's game against the Marlins due to tightness in his left hamstring, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Manager Craig Counsell said the decision to remove Happ from the game was precautionary, as he missed time during spring training due to a strain in the same hamstring. The 29-year-old's status for the weekend remains unclear, though it's certainly possible he sits down for a game or two in order to properly recover.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Delivers go-ahead grand slam

    Happ went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and two additional runs scored during Tuesday's 12-11 extra-inning loss to Arizona.

    Happ's first homer of 2024 came in crunch time, as the seventh-inning grand slam put the Cubs ahead by three runs. It was Happ's second game of the season with three or more hits while his three runs scored marked a season high. Tuesday's contest also snapped a bit of a slump, as he entered the game 1-for-20 (.050) over his previous five games.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Triples in Friday win

    Happ went 1-for-4 with a walk, a triple, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 9-7 win over the Dodgers.

    Batting leadoff for the fifth time in seven games, Happ served as an effective tablesetter, and he recorded his first triple of the season as well. The outfielder is in a good position to produce atop a potent Chicago lineup, which could allow him to surpass the career-high 86 runs he recorded last season. Happ now has six runs scored so far this year.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Reaches base five times

    Happ went 4-for-5 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Rangers.

    Happ was able to reach base five times Sunday, including with an RBI-double in the fourth inning. He has now reached base in each of the first three games of the season, going 5-for-12 with a double, two RBI, a run scored and two walks.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Back in lineup for exhibition

    Happ (hamstring) will start in left field and bat leadoff in Monday's Cactus League game against the Cardinals.

    Happ will be making his fourth start in eight days but just his third in left field since he was shut down for a little over two weeks earlier this month due to a left hamstring strain. Following Happ's most recent start this past Thursday, manager Craig Counsell said that the outfielder had plateaued in his recovery from the hamstring strain, but Happ's presence in the lineup four days later suggests he's still on track to be ready to go for Thursday's season opener versus the Rangers. The Cubs could continue to exercise some caution with Happ early in the season by giving him more starts as a designated hitter rather than a left fielder, and the hamstring issue may naturally result in him being less active as a base stealer after he pilfered a career-high 14 bags in 2023.
