Happ, Blue Jays add another year to deal

Pitcher J.A. Happ and the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a

$9.1 million, two-year contract that adds an additional $5.4

million and one season to the deal he reached in January.

Happ’s salary remains $3.7 million for this year, and the new

deal adds a $5.2 million salary for 2014 and a $6.7 million team

option for 2015 with a $200,000 buyout.

The left-hander went a combined 10-11 with a 4.79 ERA in 28

games last year for Houston and Toronto. He is 35-35 with a 4.19

ERA in six seasons with Philadelphia, the Astros and Blue Jays.

Happ has a 1.90 ERA in seven appearances this spring
