The Cubs and White Sox are among multiple suitors of Scott Eyre, a free-agent left-handed reliever, agent Tommy Tanzer confirmed Monday.

Tanzer said he was flying to Eyre's home in Florida on Monday night to review the options and narrow the list. Eyre, 33, has pitched in at least 70 games in each of the last four seasons, including a career-high 86 with San Francisco in 2005.


Eyre began his career in 1997 with the Sox as a starting pitcher but has flourished as a reliever. He was 2-2 with a 2.63 ERA with the Giants last season, allowing only three home runs in 68 1/3 innings.

Eyre has remained friends with Sox catcher and former Giants teammate A.J. Pierzynski. The Sox probably would have to deal left-hander Damaso Marte to make room for Eyre with Neal Cotts.

The Cubs might stand a better chance of signing Eyre because of his familiarity with the National League. It also helped the Cubs that Eyre renewed acquaintances with manager Dusty Baker after the season, Tanzer said.

"Scott talked to Dusty, and that had some impact," Tanzer said. "He pitched for Dusty for a short time [in San Francisco], and Dusty made a quick impression on him."

Eyre's career was resurrected under Baker and pitching coach Dave Righetti after he'd been claimed off waivers from Toronto during the 2002 season. Eyre had a 1.59 ERA in 21 games with the Giants en route to the NL pennant.

Tanzer, who negotiated a two-year, $6 million contract last month with the Cubs for left-hander Glendon Rusch, said Eyre had attracted interest from the New York Yankees, Boston, Cleveland and Detroit.

"We're going to figure this out soon," Tanzer said. "We're going to find out what's right for Scott."

The guy's probably a Giant's fan who ran out of other guys to pick and just decided to throw that one in. :-D

Well, his price just increased. :-D

Looks as if one voter was bound and determined to select a Giant - didn't like Alou or saw that Alou missed 40 games - scrolled down the roster stats and saw a sub-3.00 ERA.
