Scott Eyre Considering Retirement

According to Scott Lauber of The Wilmington Journal, 37-year-old reliever Scott Eyre is considering retiring after this season.

Eyre was diagnosed with a "loose body" in his left elbow earlier this week and plans to undergo surgery in the offseason to repair it.  If his rehab doesn't run smoothly, he's likely to hang up the cleats.  Eyre has posted an impressive 1.61 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 28 innings out of the Phillies' bullpen this year, holding left-handed hitters to a .207 batting average.

He has a 4.24 career ERA, 1.52 WHIP and four saves over 12 major league seasons.
