Guardians starter Ben Lively ‘good to go’ after being examined for possible injury

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cleveland Guardians starting pitcher Ben Lively, who underwent tests after leaving Saturday’s game with some tightness, is “good to go” for his next start, manager Stephen Vogt said Tuesday.

The 32-year-old right-hander was examined back in Cleveland after pitching Saturday night in Miami. He left after five innings and 65 pitches but still won his fifth straight start as the Guardians beat the Marlins 8-0.

“He just had a little tightness,” Vogt said before Tuesday’s game against Cincinnati. “He should be in line to make his next start. You know how we do it — always be as cautious as possible. He had an off day. Everything checked out. He’s good to go.”

Lively (6-2) could pitch again as early as this weekend in Toronto.
