Eyre Hopes To Return To Phillies

According to Scott Lauber of The News Journal, lefty Scott Eyre would like to return to the Phillies next year.  Eyre is a free agent after the season.  He told Lauber he’d be up for a one-year deal to stay.

Eyre, 36, has tossed 11 strong innings for the Phillies since coming over in a trade with the Cubs.  Eyre has shown he can still be effective when healthy.  He’s earning $3.8MM this year.  If he’ll take a one-year deal, the Phils might as well do it.  It beats giving three years to Damaso Marte.
