Fast approaching his 37th birthday, the left-handed hitting Overbay spent last season with the New York Yankees boasting a .240/.295/.340 mark with 14 home runs in 486 plate appearances as the Bombers primary first baseman.
Overbay previously enjoyed the finest two-year stint of his career in Milwaukee from 2004-05, slugging his way to a .289/.376/.464 while leading the National League in doubles in 2004. The Washington native kept in line with his career splits last season by hitting .258/.317/.432 against right-handed pitching versus a paltry .190/.232/.284 against southpaws.
