Happ has been on a tear since the start of July, batting .354 with a .473 wOBA and 4 homers. Importantly, Happ’s hot stretch has coincided with an 24% strikeout rate and 17% walk rate.
If Happ continues to mash baseballs while minimizing strikeouts, I’m guessing that it’s only a matter of time we see him back at Wrigley.
