The Jays have signed our new 5th starter, J.A. Happ to a two year contract extension , plus a team option for a third year.

Happ will make $3.7 million in 2013, $5.2 million in 2014 with the $6.7 option for 2015. As with most big Blue Jay signings, Happ will make a donation to the Jays Care Foundation. This buys out his arbitration years and the club option would cover his first free agent year. The $3.7 for this year supersedes the $3.2 $3.7 contract he had signed back in January. The Jays and Happ are having a press conference tomorrow, so we'll have more about the deal then,.

It sounds like a good deal for the Jays and gives Happ some security too.

Here's Happ's career numbers:
