Anyone want a first baseman with a .649 OPS and eight homers in 103 games? Anyone?
Well, if there is anyone, they're in luck -- Lyle Overbay has cleared waivers.
Overbay, 34, hit 53 doubles for Milwaukee in 2004 and then put up a .312/.372/.508 slash line in 2006 for Toronto, but found himself out of favor in Toronto last season and had little interest as a free agent last winter when Pittsburgh signed him.
The Pirates released him last week after acquiring Derrek Lee.
It's possible a team with a need for a veteran left-handed bat could pick up Overbay on the cheap, but it appears his career as an everyday first baseman are over. Overbay hit .227/.300/.349 with 37 RBI in 391 plate appearances for PIttsburgh this season.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @eyeonbaseball on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
