Scott Alan Eyre (born May 30, 1972 in Inglewood, California) is a left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Eyre graduated from Southern Idaho Junior College and was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 9th round in 1991. In 1994, he was traded to the Chicago White Sox and made his major league debut in Chicago on August 1, 1997. Eyre was traded in 2000 to the Toronto Blue Jays. Eyre was selected off waivers from the Blue Jays by the San Francisco Giants in 2002. He spent the next several seasons as an effective reliever for the Giants.

On November 18, 2005, Eyre signed a three-year contract with the Chicago Cubs and pitched his way to an ERA of 3.38. He was one of the more consistently used relievers on a pitching staff that often struggled. He was used mainly in 7th and 8th inning situations in tandem with Bob Howry with Eyre being used more often in lefty vs. lefty situations.
