Analysis: The 20-game winner has surrendered no more than two runs in six consecutive starts.
|Oct. 6 7:18 PM PT8:18 PM MT9:18 PM CT10:18 PM ET22:18 ET2:18 GMT10:18 7:18 PM MST9:18 PM EST9:48 PM VEN6:18 UAE (+1)9:18 PM CT-Happ will make his first playoff appearance since 2009 when he starts Game 2 of the ALDS against the Rangers.
Analysis: Happ has only 9 1/3 innings of postseason experience - all with the Phillies - and posted a 4.82 ERA in a span of six relief appearances and one start. The left-hander, who turns 34 this month, won a career-high 20 games this season. He won his only matchup with Texas, throwing seven innings of one-run ball on May 5.
|Oct. 2 9:47 PM PT10:47 PM MT11:47 PM CT12:47 AM ET0:47 ET4:47 GMT12:47 9:47 PM MST11:47 PM EST12:17 AM VEN8:47 UAE11:47 PM CT-Happ wasn't able to get his 21st win in Saturday's final regular-season start, though he helped Toronto earn an important 4-3 victory at Boston by yielding two runs over 6 1/3 innings despite issuing a season-high five walks.
Analysis: If the Blue Jays are able to reach the ALDS, Happ will surely have a prominent role in the rotation after compiling a 20-4 record and a 3.18 ERA over 32 starts during his breakout campaign. The veteran lefty finished strong as well, posting a 3-0 mark and a 2.35 ERA over his final five starts.
|Sep. 26 8:12 PM PT9:12 PM MT10:12 PM CT11:12 PM ET23:12 ET3:12 GMT11:12 8:12 PM MST10:12 PM EST10:42 PM VEN7:12 UAE (+1)10:12 PM CT-Happ was in line for his 21st win Monday before the Yankees scored five times in the ninth inning and held on to beat the Blue Jays.
Analysis: The left-hander allowed one earned run over 7 1/3 innings and is 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA in his last four outings. His final start of the season is scheduled for Saturday at Boston. Happ has won both outings this season against the Red Sox behind a 2.08 ERA.
|Sep. 21 11:47 PM PT12:47 AM MT1:47 AM CT2:47 AM ET2:47 ET6:47 GMT14:47 11:47 PM MST1:47 AM EST2:17 AM VEN10:47 UAE1:47 AM CT-Happ had to throw just five innings - not including the warmup tosses he made inside the visiting clubhouse during a top-of-the-fourth-inning that lasted nearly 40 minutes - to become baseball's second 20-game winner as the Blue Jays used an eight-run fourth to blow out the Seattle Mariners 10-2 on Tuesday night.
Analysis: Though Happ is 4-1 in his last seven starts, he has a 4.46 ERA during that stretch.
|Sep. 16 9:37 AM PT10:37 AM MT11:37 AM CT12:37 PM ET12:37 ET16:37 GMT0:37 9:37 AM MST11:37 AM EST12:07 PM VEN20:37 UAE11:37 AM CT-Happ (19-4) was winless in five starts against Los Angeles coming into the opening game of the four-game series on Thursday. But he was charged with two runs and three hits, struck out three over six-plus innings and got his 13th win in his last 17 starts and his career-best 19th.
Analysis: It's the most wins for a Toronto pitcher since Roy Halladay won 20 games in 2008 and he trails Rick Porcello by one win for the major league lead.
|Sep. 10 5:12 PM PT6:12 PM MT7:12 PM CT8:12 PM ET20:12 ET0:12 GMT8:12 5:12 PM MST7:12 PM EST7:42 PM VEN4:12 UAE (+1)7:12 PM CT-Happ earned his 18th win of the season with his best start in a month. The left-hander held Boston to two runs and four hits while striking out five over six-plus innings in Toronto's 3-2 victory on Saturday.
Analysis: Happ entered the matchup in a bit of a rut, having surrendered 10 runs in 14 innings over a three-start winless stretch, but returned to form to help the Blue Jays close within a game of the AL East-leading Red Sox. He'll take an outstanding 18-4 record and 3.33 ERA into Thursday's favorable matchup at Anaheim.
|Sep. 4 4:44 PM PT5:44 PM MT6:44 PM CT7:44 PM ET19:44 ET23:44 GMT7:44 4:44 PM MST6:44 PM EST7:14 PM VEN3:44 UAE (+1)6:44 PM CT-Happ wasn't sharp for the fourth straight start Sunday, allowing three runs and six hits over 2 2/3 innings at Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Happ is 1-1 with a 5.91 ERA in his last four starts with five homers allowed after he went 9-0 with a 1.94 ERA and three home runs surrendered in his 10 previous outings. He's clearly fallen behind Boston's Rick Porcello in the Cy Young race.

Happ, though, avoided his second straight loss.
Analysis: Happ has a 5.30 ERA in his last three starts after posting a 1.25 mark in his seven previous outings.

The left-hander pitched into the eighth inning against the Yankees, struck out nine, walked one and yielded three solo homers.
Analysis: He's won five straight starts and has a 2.53 ERA in 12 outings since losing to the Tigers on June 6. Happ's next start is scheduled for Aug. 25 against the Angels, and he's gone 0-4 with an 8.00 ERA in four career matchups.

Analysis: Happ improved to 10-0 over his last 11 starts - all Toronto wins - and has been particularly dominant over his past four, yielding a mere two runs and 12 hits through 25 innings during that stretch. He's been as reliable a pitcher as any in the majors during this breakthrough campaign.
|Aug. 5 11:57 AM PT12:57 PM MT1:57 PM CT2:57 PM ET14:57 ET18:57 GMT2:57 11:57 AM MST1:57 PM EST2:27 PM VEN22:57 UAE1:57 PM CT-Happ retired 12 of his first 13 batters and allowed one run and four hits in six innings in Thursday's 4-1 win over Houston.

He took a no-decision, allowing three runs over 5 2/3 innings with five strikeouts and one walk.
Analysis: The Blue Jays and Happ don't think he will have to miss any starts, though they surely will be cautious. ''Hopefully he'll be fine, but you never know if it's going to stiffen up on him,'' Gibbons said of Happ and his forearm. The left-hander had won his previous six starts.
|July 8 8:00 PM PT9:00 PM MT10:00 PM CT11:00 PM ET23:00 ET3:00 GMT11:00 8:00 PM MST10:00 PM EST10:30 PM VEN7:00 UAE (+1)10:00 PM CT-Happ (12-3) matched his career high in wins by giving up six hits and striking out nine in 5 2/3 scoreless innings Friday against the Tigers.

Analysis: He allowed one run in six innings to cruise through New York's woeful lineup of has-beens and mediocrities.
|May 27 1:24 PM PT2:24 PM MT3:24 PM CT4:24 PM ET16:24 ET20:24 GMT4:24 1:24 PM MST3:24 PM EST3:54 PM VEN0:24 UAE (+1)3:24 PM CT-Happ returned to the win column with seven sharp innings Thursday against the Yankees.
