TORONTO (AP) -A frustrated Lyle Overbay returned to Toronto on Thursday, wondering what to do during his first trip to the disabled list.
``I'm already bored out of my mind,'' Overbay said. ``Hopefully, I don't drive my family insane.''
A seven-year veteran, Overbay had missed only one game this season before he was hit by a pitch from Chicago White Sox left-hander John Danks on Sunday, breaking his right pinkie. Overbay stayed in the game to run but was replaced at first base by Matt Stairs the following inning.
``I've got hit in the hand before but not like this,'' Overbay said. ``When I couldn't close my glove, that was the thing that took me out of the game.''
Overbay, 30, is batting .256 with eight home runs and 27 RBIs in 55 games this season. He had surgery in Baltimore on Monday to repair two fractures in his hand. Four pins were inserted into the finger to help heal the bone. He's expected to miss four to six weeks.
Overbay will have to wear a cast for the next week, but can resume regular exercise once it comes off.
Stairs, Jason Phillips and rookie Curtis Thigpen will share time at first base in Overbay's absence.
