Brantly was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

Brantly was claimed off waivers by the White Sox in December and entered spring training with the opportunity to serve as the backup to Tyler Flowers behind the plate. Instead, the 25-year-old will head back to Triple-A where he spent all of the 2014 season, slashing .255/.291/.341 in 101 games. With a strong showing in the minors, Brantly should get the opportunity to earn a call up to the big league roster at some point this season.

Brantly was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on Monday, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports.

The 25-year-old backstop has a .235 averaged with four home runs in 356 career plate appearances, and does not have much fantasy upside. Fortunately for him, the White Sox have a shoddy collection of catchers on the roster, so he may provide a real life upgrade in 2015.

Rob Brantly homered in his lone at-bat Wednesday and is 7-for-14 this spring.

Brantly was handed a starting job last spring and disappointed, hitting .211/.263/.265 in 223 at-bats. As a result, the Marlins went and signed Jarrod Saltalamacchia and essentially punched Brantly's ticket back to Triple-A this year. It would taken an injury to Salty or backup Jeff Mathis for Brantly to make the club.

Brantly was the team's Opening Day catcher, but he's sporting an ugly .225/.275/.284 batting line with one homer this season and had been losing playing time to Jeff Mathis. The Marlins still view the 24-year-old as their long-term catcher, but he clearly needs more seasoning.

Rob Brantly drove home his 11th run of the season in Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Brantly's RBI single in the seventh inning was his only hit in four at-bats on the night. He's been a bit of a disappointment offensively thus far, hitting .247/.321/.323 with no homers, 11 RBI and only four runs scored on the season. Fantasy owners in two-catcher formats who counted on more production from the Marlins backstop have likely had to search for other options.
