The Blue Jays didn't approach Overbay about deals in July, but that could change this month. Injuries to Carlos Pena and Kevin Youkilis could mean the Rays and/or Red Sox have interest. The Rays could get Pena back soon and the Red Sox have another former Blue Jays first baseman – Carlos Delgado – in the minors, but Overbay could be a consideration for both clubs.
The 33-year-old has hit .250/.329/.422 for the season with 13 homers. He isn't projected to qualify as a Type A or B free agent after the season, so draft pick compensation wouldn't be a factor for the Blue Jays in any trade.
