Sox Sign Lyle Overbay To Minor League Deal

Continuing their efforts to sign every over-thirty role player in baseball, the Red Sox inked Lyle Overbay to a minor league deal today. The 36-year old Overbay played in 65 games last year between Arizona and Atlanta, hitting a combined .259, with 2 HRs and 10 RBIs. He will be a non-roster invitee to Spring Training, and will compete for back-up duties at first base.
