J.A. Happ – Happ has been a pretty steady pitcher over thepastfouror five seasons going 64-27 with Toronto for 4.5 seasons and the Yankees for 0.5 seasons with a 3.56 ERA during that timespan.

Happ was acquired at mid-season by the Yankees and promptly went 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA for the Bronx Bombers.  He will command probably around 12-15 million dollars per season which is not bad for quality starting pitchers.  The only drawback is that Happ is now 36 years old and could start declining soon.

If the Angels were to offer Happ a contract it might be somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 years 40 million dollars.  If they can get him for that it would be a good addition to the current staff.
