Minnesota Twins Sign LHP J.A. Happ

By Adam Roberts – 1/21/2021

Yesterday the Brewers made official their signing of utilityman Daniel Robertson to a one-year deal to bring their 40-man roster to 38 players. Today, the Twins finally made a move of their own after a notably slow start to their offseason.

Left-handed pitcher J.A. [[ Jay ]] Happ agreed to a one-year deal, pending a physical with the Twins. Happ spent the last two-and-a-half seasons with the New York Yankees and joins a Minnesota rotation on the hunt for its third straight AL Central title this upcoming season.

In the Bronx, Happ racked up a 21-10 record, 4.13 ERA, and 245 strikeouts. He was an All Star for the Yankees in 2018 and is four seasons removed from finishing sixth in the AL Cy Young vote with the Toronto Blue Jays.
