Report: Giants have interest in first baseman Lyle Overbay

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the San Francisco Giants have looked into signing first baseman Lyle Overbay, who was designated for assignment on Monday by the Arizona Diamondback.

"I’m told the Giants would like him to go to [Triple-A] Fresno for a bit first," Schulman writes, "and so far Overbay has balked at that. He might be a good fit on the bench as the guy the Giants hoped Aubrey Huff could be before he hurt his knee."
Overbay, 35, actually put up decent numbers with the D-Backs (.292 average, .367 OBP in only 96 at-bats), which may explain his reluctance to accept a minor-league assignment. But Schulman points out that Overbay was mired in a 2-for-25 slump, dating back to June 23, when he was released.
