Minnesota Twins Rookie Relief Pitcher, Willie Eyre, was born on July 12, 1978 in Fountain Valley, California. He was a 1996 graduate of Cyprus (UT) High School where he was All-Region in 1995-96 and All-State in 1996. He attended the College of Eastern Utah where he was an All-American selection as an outfielder in 1997 and 1999. He is the brother of Giants' pitcher Scott Eyre.

In 2002, Willie began his season at Ft. Myers. Early in the spring, he struggled with right shoulder tendonitis, but still managed to have a 3-game win-streak, going 3-0, 3.45 (15.2 IP, 6 ER), with one save in 8 games. During the summer months, he did not allow an earned run in 9 consecutive appearances and had a season-high 5 strikeouts. In 2003 and 2004, he spent all of his time pitching in the minors.In October 2005, the Twins purchased the contract of Willie Eyre from Triple-A Rochester.

Willie is a decent mid-level prospect who could have an impact in 2006. He went 10-3 with a 2.72 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 82 2/3 innings in Triple-A and will compete for a big-league spot next spring. He could be a long reliever and spot starter, either position suits him well. However, Francisco Liriano and Scott Baker are the Twins higher profile prospects who will get first crack.
