The Texas Rangers is another of the franchises that They try to tie up a deal with former Yankees left-handed starter, JA Happ, who at the end of the 2020 campaign became free agent. This was reported on his Twitter account, Jon Morosi of MLB.com.
Texans aren’t the only ones targeting the tall, 6-foot-tall pitcher, the Anaheim Angels are the other club that sounds strong as a destination for the 38-year-old veteran.
Next year Happ will go into his 15th major league career season, which started on the right foot with the Phillies and was fortunate enough to win the 2008 World Series in his second year and still as a rookie.
Houston, Toronto, Seattle, Pittsburgh and the New York Yankees have been the other organizations where Happ has pitched. With the Yankees in 2020 he was the second-best ERA (3.47) in starting pitching, all behind ace Gerrit Cole.
