Lyle Overbay 1B MIL 23 Days

Lyle Overbay crushed a first-inning grand slam, but it wasn't enough as the Brewers were defeated by the Phillies on Tuesday.

Overbay's salami was his only hit in five at-bats, staking the Brewers to a 5-1 lead at the time. It was his first home run since June 22. The first baseman otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in his limited playing time, slashing .236/.317/.352 with four home runs and 25 RBI in 186 plate appearances.

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.
