Royals' Ben Lively: Set for relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively will take on a role in Kansas City's bullpen, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

Lively was claimed off waivers by the Royals earlier this week and will finish out the year in a relief role. Across five starts with the Phillies, he logged a 6.85 ERA and 1.86 WHIP in 23.2 innings this season.

Royals' Ben Lively: Claimed by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively was claimed off waivers by the Royals on Wednesday.

Lively will head straight to the major-league roster, though it's unclear if he'll be a member of the rotation or the bullpen down the stretch. The 26-year-old made 20 starts for the Phillies over the last two seasons, posting a 4.81 ERA. He's been good at avoiding walks, posting just a 7.0 percent walk rate, but he doesn't strike out enough batters (15.2 percent strikeout rate) or get enough groundballs (35.8 percent groundball rate) to be anything more than a backend starter at best.

Phillies' Ben Lively: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

The Phillies needed to free up a roster spot for Jerad Eickhoff, who was activated from the 60-day disabled list Monday, and Lively was the corresponding roster casualty. The 26-year-old struggled to a 6.85 ERA across 23.2 innings with the Phillies this season.

Phillies' Ben Lively: Likely done for year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively is likely out for the year with a shoulder injury, The Morning Call reports.

Lively opened the year in the Phillies' rotation but struggled to a 6.85 ERA in five starts. Solid showings by Vince Velasquez and Nick Pivetta and the emergence of Zach Eflin and Enyel De Los Santos have pushed Lively down the pecking order, giving him a tough road back to the roster even if healthy. He'll compete for a roster spot again next spring but is unlikely to be a favorite to make the team.

Phillies' Ben Lively: Activated, optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively (back) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Lively, who spent the past two weeks on the disabled list with a back injury, will join Lehigh Valley's rotation. He compiled a 6.85 ERA and 1.86 WHIP across five starts (23.2 innings) with the Phillies before landing on the disabled list. The 26-year-old will be an option to rejoin the big-league rotation should an opening emerge.
