Veteran LHP Happ, Twins have deal

The Twins moved to solidify their starting rotation on Wednesday, reaching an agreement on a one-year contract with veteran left-hander J.A. Happ, a source told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand. The club has not confirmed the deal, which is pending a physical and was first reported by ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

With Jake Odorizzi, Rich Hill and Homer Bailey all free agents, the Twins have been in search of depth to support a rotation that features Kenta Maeda and José Berríos at the top.

Happ brings no shortage of experience. The 38-year-old has spent 14 seasons in the Majors with the Phillies, Astros, Blue Jays, Mariners, Pirates and Yankees, amassing a record of 123-92 and an ERA of 3.98 over 324 games (298 starts).
