With the furor around the Adam Moffat for Servando Carrasco + 2014 SuperDraft pick trade, Houston Dynamo fans could almost be forgiven to think that there are more important things at hand. Namely, a match later on today against the Philadelphia Union. The injury report was released yesterday - but before the trade went down, which means that it has changed. Here's the updated form:
OUT: Corey Ashe – Left hamstring strain; Eric Brunner – Right ankle sprain; Andrew Driver – Right calf strain
QUESTIONABLE: Tyler Deric – Right thumb fracture; Calen Carr – Left knee
DISCIPLINARY SUMMARY: Boniek Garcia (MLS Disciplinary Committee – one-game suspension)
One thing that I think might have gotten overlooked yesterday is that the trade occurred shortly before the rosters froze. This means that if the Dynamo do pull off a turnaround, Carrasco would be eligible to play in the postseason. Timing seems to have been everything in this one.
As for the young midfielder, he'll wear the number 17. Carrasco will be in Philly this evening, and could conceivably even see the pitch. Thoughts on that, Dynamo fans?
