Best Answer

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.
