The Cleveland Guardians announced on Wednesday (July 13) that they have signed Lively to a one-year contract.

The team did not disclose the size of the deal. According to The Athletic, he will earn an annualized salary of $750,000.

That’s just over the major league minimum.

Lively joined the Cincinnati Reds on a minor league deal last season and was called up midseason.

In 19 appearances and 88 2/3 innings pitched, he went 4-7 with a 5.38 ERA.

His WHIP was 1.365 with 2.0 home runs, 2.5 walks, and 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings.

It’s unfortunate that he didn’t get a lot of work due to three stints on the disabled list with pectoral muscle injuries.

In four seasons in the big leagues, Lively is 8-17 with a 5.05 ERA in 45 appearances and 208 2/3 innings pitched.

Lively previously spent three years with Samsung from 2019 to 2021. In 36 games and 202 1/3 innings pitched, he went 10-12 with a 4.14 ERA.

Lively is expected to compete for a spot in the starting rotation with his new team.

Cleveland currently has starting arms in Shane Beaver, Triston McKenzie, Gavin Williams, Tanner Bybee, and Logan Allen. Of these, Bieber has been the subject of trade discussions.
