Scott Eyre Designated; Red Sox Interested

WEDNESDAY: According to Sean McAdam of the Providence Journal, the Red Sox still have interest in Eyre.  Scott Lauber figures the Phillies are likely to inquire as well.

TUESDAY: To make room for closer Kerry Wood, the Cubs designated lefty reliever Scott Eyre for assignment today.  Eyre, 36, posted a 7.15 ERA in 11.1 innings with the Cubs this year. He spent time on the DL with elbow and groin problems.  Eyre actually had a nice run in the second half last year as well as May this year.

Eyre still has about $1.15MM left on his contract.  Perhaps teams like the Red Sox and Phillies will inquire and the Cubs won't have to assume all of his salary.
