Blue Jays, Mariners Discuss Overbay Trade

The Blue Jays and Mariners have discussed a deal involving first baseman Lyle Overbay, according to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  The writers say Overbay "would welcome" a deal, and note that he's been coming up in multiple rumors.  Overbay almost went back to Arizona in a deal for Chris Snyder before the Blue Jays backed out.

At $7MM next year, Overbay is reasonably priced.  Nonetheless, the Jays seem to prefer to go in another direction at first base.  Aside from the Mariners and D'Backs, the Orioles, A's, Rangers, Braves, Mets, and Giants might have openings at first.
