J.A. Happ gets himself a nice raise

The Astros avoided arbitration with J.A. Happ today, agreeing on a $2.35m deal for 2012, a nice little increase over the $474,000 he made in 2011.

According to FanGraphs, Happ had a 0.3 WAR in 2011, valuing him at $1.3m.

Jed Lowrie is the only other arbitration case the Astros need to take care of.
