Orioles Re-Sign Willie Eyre

The Orioles re-signed righty reliever Willie Eyre to a minor league deal with a spring training invite, tweets Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com.  The Orioles had designated Eyre for assignment upon acquiring Dana Eveland in December, and non-tendered him a few days later.

Eyre, a 33-year-old Sosnick Cobbe client, had 18 1/3 big league innings in 2011.  For the Athletics' Triple-A affiliate, he posted a 3.48 ERA, 6.5 K/9, 4.1 BB/9, and 0.73 HR/9 in 62 innings.
