BDD: What, Exactly, is J.A. Happ?
At Baseball Daily Digest, I investigate Happ’s success this season: is it real or just an illusion?
It’s true: Happ hasn’t been giving up hits when his opponents are threatening to score. The only situations in which opponents have an OPS higher than .600 against him are:
- Runner on first: .781 OPS
- Bases empty: .725 OPS
- Runner on second: .678 OPS
