Brantly was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Sunday.

The Mariners decided to go with Chris Iannetta and Steve Clevenger as their two catchers to open the season, leaving no room for Brantly on the roster. The team will now have 10 days to trade or release Brantly, but it's more likely the Mariners will try to pass him through waivers and then stash him at Triple-A Tacoma.
