The Seattle Mariners are making another of their many roster moves today, activating catcher Kenji Johjima from the disabled list.
That means someone must make room for him, so for the third time this season, veteran Jamie Burke has been designated for assignment.
Life on the bubble? Over the next 10 days, Burke will wait to see if any other team in the game wants to claim him, or if the Mariners can trade him - or offer him yet another minor league deal.
Burke is 37, a career backup catcher whose professional journey began in 1993. In all the years since, Burke has played fewer than 350 big league games, spent just over three years in the majors.
And he's loved most every moment.
He still wants to play, thinks he can still help a pitching staff, still do the small things a reserve is asked to do.
Will he ever get another chance? That's uncertain, and he knows it.
If he returns to the Seattle minor league system, he could be brought up in September - but the Mariners by then could want to look, instead, at Adam Moore.
Here's hoping Burke gets another chance, somewhere, to play a big-league game.
