started the season in the bullpen, found himself in trade rumors in July and wondered where he might pitch in the postseason in September.

He still pitched well.

He went 12-4 with a 2.93 ERA in 35 games (23 starts) as Sporting News on Tuesday named Happ its National League Rookie of the Year, as selected by a panel of 338 Major League players.

“Over the course of the season if you try to be consistent and play the game the right way, I think guys will take notice of that and it’s definitely an honor that they did,” Happ said during a workout Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park.

Game 5 of the NLCS is tomorrow night, but you already knew that.
