The Phillies and Reds have made a deal.  The Reds get outfielder Marlon Byrd who hit 25 HRs and 85 RBIs in 2014.  The Phillies get 22 year old pitcher Ben Lively.

The Phillies, who need to get younger, get  a fourth-round pick from 2013, who pitched in Single-A and Double-A in 2014. Total, he was 13-7 with a 3.04 ERA. Baseball Prospectus ranked Lively as the Red’s 7th overall draft pick.
