Training camp roster comings and goings

Subtractions

The Sounders made the first round of training camp cuts official Tuesday morning.

The five players no longer with the team are MLS supplemental draft pick and UW product Abdul Aman (who has already set up his next move), academy alum Darwin Jones, invitee goalkeeper Tyrel Lacey, invitee midfielder Jonathan Prieto and the unnamed Korean trialist (he had the surname of Park).

As noted earlier, O’Brian White (recovery from blood clots) and Michael Tetteh (hamstring) didn’t travel with the team to rehab their injuries here in Seattle.

Also, forward Sammy Ochoa is not with the team so he can be with his wife for the birth of their second child.

Additions

On the other hand, there are some expected additions. Supplemental draft pick Wes Feighner has joined the team and Swedish right back Adam Johansson is expected in soon. A pair of young Honduran defenders, Ever Alvarado and Harlinton Gutierres, should be in training by Wednesday (perhaps for 10 days?).

The team named Alvarado and Gutierres, as well as Jamaican trialist Andrew Vanzie, for the first time.

I have to believe there are some other trialists coming in, but I’m sure how much information we’ll get from the team on them.

Roster

Here’s what the team provided (I’ve included some markings/indicators for clarity):

Goalkeepers: Josh Ford, Michael Gspurning, Bryan Meredith, Andrew Weber*

Defenders: Ever Alvarado*, Marc Burch, Andrew Duran#, Wes Feighner#, Leo Gonzalez, Harlinton Gutierres*, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, Patrick Ianni, Adam Johansson, Jeff Parke, Tim Pontius#, Michael Tetteh, Zach Scott
