Brewers add Overbay to first base competition

The Milwaukee Brewers signed veteran Lyle Overbay to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.  Overbay will turn 37 in a week.  He started at first base for the Brewers back in 2004 and 2005.

Overbay played last season with the New York Yankees and hit .240 with 14 home runs and 59 RBI in 142 games.

The signing of Overbay comes after the Brewers added Mark Reynolds, who became a Yankees teammate of Overbay’s last August after being released by Cleveland.

In 2004, Overbay set the Brewers’ record with 53 doubles.  In two seasons with the team, he hit a combined .289 with 35 home runs and 87 doubles.

There’s a chance Overbay and Reynolds could platoon at first base, leaving Francisco on the outside looking in.
