Ian Happ has had a very interesting career as a member of the Chicago Cubs.

The former first round pick came up to the big leagues in 2017 and hit a towering 413 foot bomb in his first game in the show. He finished the 2017 season with 24 homeruns and 67 RBIs in only 115 games. That RBI number put him in 3rd overall for RBIs among rookies in 2017.

Happ's sophomore season would be what people call 'a sophomore slump'. He finished the season slashing .233/.353/.408 with 15 home runs and 44 RBIs in 142 games. His biggest issue coming in the swing and miss department, Happ struckout 167 times in 2018.

His issues in 2018 led to a shocking revelation from Joe Maddon. Ian Happ would be starting off the 2019 season in Iowa after posting abysmal numbers in Spring Training. He was recalled to the majors later that summer and seemed to really find his swing in the second half of the 2019 season.
