Lyle Overbay Hits Free Agency

Lyle Overbay has cleared waivers and hit free agency, according to MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch (on Twitter). The Pirates had designated him for assignment at the end of July.

Overbay signed a one-year $5MM contract with the Pirates in the offseason, but didn't produce as well as expected in his return to the National League. After reaching the 20 homer plateau for the second time in his career last year and posting a .243/.329/.433 line, the 34-year-old added just eight homers for Pittsburgh, posting a .227/.300/.349 line.
