Okert was designated for assignment by the Giants on Saturday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Okert seemed to have a good shot at a bullpen role but will instead be cast off the 40-man roster entirely. As a left-hander with a respectable enough 4.28 ERA in 48.1 career big-league innings, there's a decent chance he won't pass through waivers unclaimed.
