Former Phillies pitcher JA Happ retires

Must Read


Former Phillies pitcher JA Happ last pitched in Philadelphia in 2010, but has pitched for seven different teams since moving to Houston in 2010.

He received a World Series ring in 2008 but was a key member of the 2009 World Series runner-up, before being traded to Houston as part of the deal that brought Roy Oswalt to Philadelphia in 2010.

The 39-year-old southpaw announced Tuesday that he will retire from baseball after 15 years with the Phillies, Yankees, Astros, Blue Jays, Pirates, Mariners, Twins and Cardinals.

He made the announcement on The Heart Strong Podcast last week.

Happ hangs up the cleats with a 133-100 record with a 4.13 ERA. He pitched 1,893.2 innings, allowing 1,822 hits in 354 appearances (328 starts).

His best season in Philadelphia came in 2009, when he posted a 12–4 record, 2.93 ERA, 119 strikeouts, and a 1.24 WHIP in 35 games, making 23 starts.
