Phillies' Ben Lively: Picks up win Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively (4-7) picked up the win Friday against the Mets. He allowed two runs on six hits while striking out one over six innings.

Despite allowing only six Mets to reach base Friday, Lively had to be lifted from the game after running his pitch count up to 97 over six laborious innings of work. Nonetheless, it was a solid bounceback performance for the 25-year-old starter who had served up six runs over five innings in a start against the Braves last week. He'll wrap up his debut big-league campaign with a 4.26 ERA over 15 starts and will enter the 2018 season with a chance to once again battle for a starting rotation spot.

Phillies' Ben Lively: Gives up six runs in loss to Altanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively (3-7) allowed six runs on eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts over five innings as he took the loss Friday against the Braves.

For the first time since August 26, Lively allowed more than three runs in a start. He got touched up for three extra-base hits, including a home run. Lively has been inconsistent, but with a 4.35 ERA, he has been a roughly league average starter in his first crack at major league action.

Phillies' Ben Lively: Allows two runs in rain-shortened start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively allowed two runs on two hits while striking out two batters Saturday against the Athletics. He didn't factor into the decision.

It's an unfortunate final line for Lively, who would have pitched deeper into the game had a two-hour rain delay not cut his start short. The 25-year-old had strung together three straight quality starts prior to Saturday's rain-shortened outing, compiling a 2.57 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB in 21 innings during that span. While he owns a fine 3.94 ERA through 77.2 innings this season, his fantasy value is limited by his 5.5 K/9 and the fact that he pitches for the lowly Phillies. His next start is expected to come Friday against the Braves.

Phillies' Ben Lively: Tosses third straight quality start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively (3-6) picked up a loss after allowing three runs on six hits over eight innings in a 3-2 loss to the Nationals on Sunday. He struck out seven and walked one.

This was Lively's third straight quality start. He's now 2-2 with a 3.94 ERA and a 28:9 K:BB in 32 innings over five starts since returning to the majors from Triple-A. The Phillies are certain to bring in some veteran starting pitching this offseason, but Lively is looking like he will enter camp next spring as a favorite for a rotation spot.

Phillies' Ben Lively: Cruises to third victory of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lively (3-5) held the Mets to a single run on four hits and three walks over seven innings en route to the win Tuesday. He struck out four.

The rookie even supported his own cause with a 2-for-4 effort at the plate that included a two-run single and a two-run homer. Lively's been a bit of a hit-or-miss fantasy play, but the hits have been more common since his return from Triple-A, as he's now tossed three quality starts in four outings. However, he'll draw a tough matchup on the road against the Nationals on Sunday.
