With the MLS roster-freeze deadline passing today, it appears the Kansas City Wizards made just one move: Activating injured striker Zoltan Hercegfalvi. He was moved from the disabled list on Monday.
Zoltan has missed almost the entire regular season after suffering a torn ACL in a pre-season friendly against AC St. Louis on April 17. He is now eligible to play this season whenever he recovers full fitness. (From what I've heard, that's likely mid-October.)
The 30-year-old Hungarian forward signed with Kansas City in July 2009 and made 10 appearances last season. He scored twice down the stretch for Kansas City, tallying his first MLS goal in October against Houston and scoring again two games later against Seattle. He also had one assist, coming on the game-tying goal in a 3-2 victory over Dallas on September 19.
