2010 Chachi #17 J.A. Happ

J.A. Happ only started two games this year before landing on the disabled list with a strained left forearm. Recent reports indicate he may not be back until late May, at the earliest. Happ prefers to pronounce his fist name as simply "Jay," which is a source of much confusion among national baseball broadcasters. He's #17 in this year's Chachi set.

Phillies debut: June 30, 2007
How acquired: Selected by Phillies in the 3rd round of June 2004 draft
Others wearing #43 in the 2000s: Andy Ashby 2000, Thomas Jacquez 2000, Randy Wolf 2001-2006, J.A. Happ 2008-2009
2009 Postseason: Happ had a 2.70 ERA in 6 relief appearances.
Pictured: NLDS Game 3, October 11, 2009 - Happ started against the Rockies, lasting just 3 innings in the frigid temperature.

Even some of the Philly talking heads were calling him "Jay Aaa" until midway through last season.
