Lyle Overbay's hitchhiking out of Fort Myers

It's starting to look like Lyle Overbay's days in Fort Myers may be numbered. According to sources Lyle Overbay's agent has been shopping his name around to other MLB teams in hopes of landing him a major league roster spot - you know things aren't looking good when the Yankees don't come calling.

Overbay was invited to Red Sox camp as a non-roster player, and next week the first baseman has the opportunity to opt-out of his contract with the Red Sox. If Overbay exercises his release option, which he's likely to do, he'll be hard pressed to find employment elsewhere - thanks to current back tightness.
