Here it is:
"Catcher Paul Hoover, who the Phillies designated for assignment Monday to make room for catcher Brian Schneider on the 25-man roster, cleared waivers. The Phillies outrighted Hoover to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and he accepted the assignment."
Can you help me understand the following:
"designated for assignment"
Background: Paul Hoover was playing with the Phillies because their other back-up catcher Brian Schneider was hurt, but Schneider has recovered.
