Pirates Designate Lyle Overbay For Assignment

The Pirates will designate first baseman Lyle Overbay for assignment, reports Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  The Pirates have since confirmed the move.  Overbay homered yesterday, but it wasn't enough to save his job with the team acquiring Derrek Lee.

Overbay, 34, has a .227/.300/.349 line in 391 plate appearances this year.  He signed a $5MM deal in December, which seemed a bit high at the time.
