When a club designates a player for assignment, it allows the

club to open up a roster spot while it figures out what it is going

to do with a player. Most often a player is designated for

assignment so the club can open up his roster spot while they wait

for him to clear waivers. A club may also designate a player for

assignment while they try to trade him to another club.
