DUNEDIN, Fla. -- 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.

The left-hander went a combined 10-11 with a 4.79 ERA in 28 games last year for Houston and Toronto. He is 35-35 with a 4.19 ERA in six seasons with Philadelphia, the Astros and Blue Jays.

Happ has a 1.90 ERA in seven appearances this spring training.
