News: Arias was designated for assignment Monday, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: With Nori Aoki (leg) coming off of the DL on Monday, the Giants needed to clear a spot on the roster, and Arias is the casualty. Arias has played sparingly as a utility infielder this season, but he's hitting just. 207 with four RBI in 58 at-bats. The 30-year-old will be subject to waivers and will likely end up at Triple-A.
