Eyre on his way out of Chicago?

Update News On Scott Eyre.

The Cubs are currently debating whether or not to eat the one million dollars owed Scott Eyre in order to make a waiver trade for a prospect. The Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays, Philadelphia Phillies, and New York Yankees are all reportedly interested in the veteran reliever. Eyre is expendable as Kerry Wood‘s return to the disabled list is imminent, however the Cubs may still elect to keep Eyre and designate another player for assignment, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Update two,Eyre ON His Way To The Phillies.

Lefty reliever Scott Eyre was acquired by the Philadelphia Phillies from the Chicago Cubs on Thursday for a minor-league pitcher.

The Phillies sent right-hander Brian Schlitter to Chicago in the trade between NL division leaders.

Eyre was 2-0 with a 7.15 ERA in 19 games over two stints with the Cubs. The 36-year-old was designated for assignment earlier this week.

Eyre didn’t allow a run in his first 14 games (nine innings) and has held left-handed hitters to a .259 batting average.

In June, Eyre set a Cubs record with 33 consecutive scoreless appearances. The streak that started in August 2007 spanned 23 2/3 innings.

Eyre is in the final season of a three-year contract. He is 23-29 with a 4.42 ERA and four saves in 556 games with the Chicago White Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants and Cubs.

Schlitter, a 16th-round pick in 2007, was 4-3 with six saves and a 2.22 ERA in 34 games for Class A Clearwater. He will report to Class A Daytona Beach,The Chicago Sun Times Reports.
