Phillies Acquire Scott Eyre

According to Todd Zolecki of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Phillies acquired lefty Scott Eyre for A ball pitcher Brian Schlitter.

Eyre, 36, posted a 7.15 ERA in 11.1 innings with the Cubs. He spent time on the DL with elbow and groin problems.  Eyre had a nice run in the second half last year as well as May this year.  He still has about $1.15MM left on his contract; the Phillies will pay all of it.  The Red Sox had also been interested in Eyre.
