Scott Eyre Retires

Scott Eyre tells MLB.com's Todd Zolecki that he's retiring after 13 seasons in the majors. The Phillies had offered the lefty a minor league deal, but Eyre, who only wanted to pitch for the Phils, chose retirement instead. Eyre originally asked for $2MM - the same amount he made in 2009 - but now says he'd prefer to spend time with his family.

"I think even if [Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr.] would have offered me a better contract I still don't think I would have taken it," Eyre told Zolecki.

Eyre pitched for the White Sox, Blue Jays, Giants and Cubs before joining the Phillies midway through 2008. He won the World Series with the Phillies just months after joining them and went on to have a strong 2009 season. Eyre allowed 22 hits and 16 walks in 30 innings, striking out 22 for an ERA of 1.50.
