Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Sources: Overbay will be designated for assignment

I’m hearing that the Pirates already have told Lyle Overbay he will be designated for assignment.

In that event, a team has 10 days to trade, waive or release a player. In Overbay’s case, given his miserable performance this year, that almost surely will lead to a release. Overbay is making $5 million on a one-year contract, and he will be paid all of that money, even with a release.

UPDATE 1:44 p.m.: Another source confirms it: Overbay will be DFA.

1:58: Here’s my full report on the Trib’s main site.
