Lyle Overbay Returns to Diamondbacks, Xavier Nady to DL

Xavier Nady, hit by a pitch in last night's game against the Mets, has been placed on the disabled list with a fractured left hand. To replace Nady, the Diamondbacks have re-signed their former first baseman, Lyle Overbay.

Overbay was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers in the Richie Sexson deal. He also spent five years with the Toronto Blue Jays and signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates this past off-season. He was hitting only .227 / .300 / .349 with 8 home runs when he was released by Pittsburgh last week.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Overbay, the Diamondbacks designated Juan Jaime for assignment.
