RHP Ben Lively joins Guardians on 1-year deal

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Detroit Tigers

The Guardians handed out a MLB contract on Tuesday, and it went to Ben Lively. The RHP is 31 and spent last season with the Reds.

During the Obama administration, he pitched with the Phillies and Royals. Then he spent 2 years in Korea. He wasn’t particularly great in any of his MLB seasons, but 13 of the 53 runs he gave up in 2023 were in one game. Yay?

He will make $750,000 in 2024.
