Lyle Overbay went 0-for-3 with a walk on Monday, leaving him 2-for-20 this season.

The Brewers have started giving Mark Reynolds some starts against righties, and it's a trend that should continue with Reynolds off to a nice start. Overbay isn't worth owning in NL-only leagues.

Lyle Overbay, making his first official appearance for the Brewers since 2005, went 0-for-3 against the Braves on Opening Day.

The Brewers would be foolish to use Overbay and Mark Reynolds in a straight platoon at first base, but that might be the way it plays out initially. Overbay hit .240/.295/.393 with Yankee Stadium helping him last year, and at 37, he's not getting any younger.

Brewers selected the contract of INF Lyle Overbay from Triple-A Nashville.

The 37-year-old slashed just .222/.364/.267 with two RBI and 16 strikeouts in 45 at-bats this spring, but was able to land a spot on the Opening Day roster as a platoon option at first base. He holds no fantasy value outside of NL-only formats.

Lyle Overbay didn't record an official at-bat in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, walking in all three of his plate appearances and scoring a run.

The veteran first baseman has posted a .450 on-base percentage early in Cactus League play, and could be a candidate to make the Opening Day roster as a platoon option at first base.

Brewers signed 1B Lyle Overbay to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Overbay hit .289/.376/.464 with 35 home runs and 159 RBI in 317 games for Milwaukee during the 2004 and 2005 seasons, but that was his prime and he's a very different player now at age 36 (almost 37). He'll be competing for a share of the action at first base.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Phillies are among the teams talking to Lyle Overbay about a minor league deal.

Overbay, who turns 37 later this month, batted .240/.295/.393 with 14 home runs over 486 plate appearances last year with the Yankees. He's unlikely to find similar playin time in 2014, but he could be useful as a backup first baseman and left-handed bench bat.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Lyle Overbay "remains on the Astros' short list of low-cost first basemen."

Cafardo adds that Houston "would love to have a veteran who could push Brett Wallace." Currently, Wallace is in line to compete with Marc Krauss, Jesus Guzman, Japhet Amador and Jonathan Singleton for the first base gig. Overbay batted just .240/.295/.393 last season for the Yankees but did slug 14 homers. Whoever winds up as the Astros' Opening Day first baseman will just be keeping the seat warm until Singleton is ready.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that there has been "very little activity" with Lyle Overbay this winter.

Overbay socked a surprising 14 homers for the Yankees last season but batted just .240/.295/.393 overall. Cafardo thinks the veteran first baseman will "likely wind up as someone's backup or a low-cost option for a team such as the Orioles or Indians."
