Arguably the most important left-hander in the Phillies bullpen wasn't available Wednesday night and it was unclear when, or if, he would be back.
The Phillies could ill afford to lose Eyre. Their other go-to situational lefty, J.C. Romero, remained on the mend and not in the pen.
In 39 games, Eyre allowed five runs and 14 walks while striking on 20 and posting a 1.61 ERA over 28 innings pitched.
It wasn't exactly clear what was causing Eyre the pain. The timetable for his return was described as day-to-day.
