Backe designated for assignment

In order to clear room for Felipe Paulino, Brandon Backe was designated for assignment. Because Backe has five years of MLB experience, he can accept his assignment to Round Rock or get his outright release.

"We'll deal with whatever decision he makes," Wade said. "Because of the injury he had during Spring Training, it just put him in a position where other guys have moved ahead of him. We've offered him the opportunity to stay in the organization, but certainly it's his call whether he wants to do that or pursue something outside of the organization."

I'm finally getting my computer issues worked out later today, so there's more to come.
