I wrote this earlier that we'd know a little bit more about the team's roster as the week drew to a close. I've received an update from the team on the roster as it stands right now, one week from MLS roster compliance deadline.
With the addition of Kevin Ellis, there are now 20 players under contract. Those 20 are now joined by 3 draft picks (Konrad Warzycha is out for 6-8 months following surgery) and 7 trialists.
The trialists that remain: Adda Djeziri, Milos Stojcev, Travis Bowen, Omar Colley, Scott Lorenz and Julio Cesar Santos Correa.
