Diamondbacks Sign Lyle Overbay

The Diamondbacks have agreed to terms with first baseman Lyle Overbay on a one-year deal worth $1MM, the team has announced.  Overbay is represented by Octagon.

Overbay began last year in Pittsburgh on a one-year deal worth $5MM, but was released after batting just .227/.300/.349. He latched on with the Diamondbacks down the stretch and hit a solid .286/.388/.452 in 49 plate appearances.

Jon Heyman of the MLB Network was the first to announce the two sides had agreed to terms.  Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona first reported that the D'Backs had made an offer, while MLB.com's Steve Gilbert added that the two sides were nearing a deal.
