The Chicago Cubs have struggled on offense all throughout 2021. Ian Happ had a great year in a shortened 2020, and everything he did last year has been undone by an abysmal 2021. Some of the old issues he had have resurfaced. Given the front office is turning over the roster here at the trade deadline anyway, now is the time for the Cubs to make a decision on his future with the team.

Entering action Wednesday, Happ is slashing just .177/.292/.319, which is unplayable on an everyday basis. This is his first really bad year in the Majors, as every year has been above average.
