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.
