Latest Update Lyle Overbay went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored in the Brewers loss to the Padres on Wednesday night. Thu Aug, 28, 01:18 AM
Can come off the bench with aplomb. Works the count for good pitches to hit, draws walks and can rack up doubles with a very smooth line-drive swing. Plays a highly efficient and consistent first base.
Flaws: : Has lost both bat and foot speed with age. No longer a threat to bat for a high average, he strikes out too much for a hitter without huge home-run power. Is too streaky. Struggles against left-handed pitching.
Just when you forget Overbay is still on a MLB roster he goes and has a big night.Analyst: Steve Pimental
They say the sun shines on a dog's ass at least once and in the case of the Brewers' come-from-behind win, that dog's ass is Lyle Overbay. Relegated to pinch-hitting and occasional spot-starts, Overbay played the hero in this one when he stepped to the plate in the eighth with the bases loaded and the game tied at two. It had been 16 games since Overbay last recorded an RBI and he was just 4-for-26 (.154) over that span. No need to concern yourself any further though as he should find a nice, shaded area, the rest of the way.Analyst: Howard Bender
Overbay may have only recorded one hit on Tuesday, but he certainly made it count driving in four runs on his fourth home run of the season. However, he is now batting just .235 with 25 RBI through 166 at-bats, leaving much to be desired for the 37-year-old veteran. Analyst: Matthew Beck
All three of the LHH Overbay's home runs this season have come off of right-handed pitching whom he is hitting .246 (30-for-122) against, which is about 80 points higher than he is hitting off LHP in a limited number of at-bats (3-for-18) proving he is nothing more than a sub-par platoon player, which shouldn't be much of a news flash for fantasy owners.Analyst: Michael Pichan
