DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) -- Pitcher J.A. Happ and the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a $9.1 million, two-year contract that adds an additional $5.4 million and one season to the deal he reached in January.

Happ's salary remains $3.7 million for this year, and the new deal adds a $5.2 million salary for 2014 and a $6.7 million team option for 2015 with a $200,000 buyout.
