That would be fine.
Normally I offset a little differently, keeing the santee vertical and 45 over the overflow tube, but what you have works too.
Replacing an old tub with a new fiberglass one. The tub drain is directly over the floor joist. Is it ok to offset the drain and overflow with some 45s? The water drains fine but I wanted to check if there was a better way to do this. With the offset, we only had to slightly notch the joist at an angle. I can sister a new 2x8 on the other side later.
Keeping the tee vertical was the original plan but the copper was in the way. I didn't want to move it unless it was necessary. The old drain came down the other side of the joist but that side is boxed in with a kitchen bulkhead that wont be accessible until the kitchen demo is complete.
I see what you mean now though. If I used a regular 45 instead of the street 45, maybe I could have offset it a little more to clear the pipe and then 45 the overflow keeping the santee vertical.
