Lively was called up by the Phillies on Wednesday, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

It appears the promotion only serves as a temporary bullpen replacement for Pat Neshek, who will miss a few games on paternity leave. Regardless, Lively may get the opportunity to make his major league debut if needed. LIvely has a 4.09 ERA with Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season after posting impressive numbers in 2016, but has never pitched in relief.
