Milwaukee announced Monday that Overbay has an invitation to big league camp in spring training next month. First base was a problem after Corey Hart missed the 2013 season following right knee surgery. Hart signed a free-agent deal this offseason with Seattle.
Analysis: The left-handed Overbay hit .240 with 14 homers and 59 RBIs in 142 games last year for the Yankees. He returns to Milwaukee, where he played two seasons starting in 2004. His 53 doubles that year are a single-season franchise record. Overbay joins Mark Reynolds and Juan Francisco as potential options at first for Milwaukee. Reynolds was signed to a minor league deal last week.

Manager Joe Girardi says New York kept Overbay over Boesch in part because Overbay can sub for first baseman Mark Teixeira after the five-time Gold Glover missed the first two months of the season with a wrist injury.
