Carrasco and Neagle sign, Prieto exploring options

carrasco neagle1.JPGRookie midfielder Servando Carrasco (L) and invitee Lamar Neagle (R) have each been among the most impressive newcomers in preseason camp so far. Both were rewarded with contracts Wednesday as Sounders FC continues to finalize its roster for the 2011 season.

Another bit of news from camp, invitee midfielder Jonathan Prieto is exploring his options in California. The door is open for him to train with Seattle, but it appears unlikely that there’s a contract for him here.

There also a new face on the practice field this morning, but coach Sigi Schmid implied that he’ll only be around for a couple days and isn’t getting a serious look. As of right now, here’s how things stand, though just because the players don’t have a * or ^ doesn’t mean they’re necessarily signed through the 2011 season.

GM Adrian Hanauer said about 25-26 are signed, and a guy like Pat Noonan has some interesting contract language that makes his situation a little complicated. There are probably others guys that are in the same boat.
