Thigpen is one of Toronto's top prospects and is athletic enough to make the Blue Jays consider moving him to the infield. He played four games at second base earlier this season.
In 44 games at Syracuse, he hit .299 with three homers and 16 RBIs.
Overbay is expected to miss four to six weeks. He was injured in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox when he was hit by a pitch from John Danks.
Overbay was just beginning to come out of an early-season funk when he was hurt. In 55 games, he was hitting .256 with eight homers and 27 RBIs.
Pitcher John Thomson was moved to the 60-day DL to make room for Thigpen on the 40-man roster.
