Tuesday morning links

There are lots of links to get to today, but first some Sounders FC updates. Watch this video report and read this blog post on the team website to get some on-the-scene coverage. From Matt Gaschk‘s work we’ve learned the following:

1. O’Brian White (blood clots) and Michael Tetteh (hamstring) didn’t travel.

2. MLS supplemental draft pick Wes Feighner, a defender out of Cal Poly, has joined the team.

3. Adam Johansson and a couple more, presumably Honduran defender Ever Alvarado and Harlinton Gutierres, are expected to join Tuesday.

From other sources, we know the Sounders will play Vancouver in a training match on Monday. Also, cuts are expected to be made known in the early afternoon. From Twitter and the aforementioned video report, we know some non-roster guys still in camp include: Andrew Weber, Andrew Duran, Babayele Sodade, Andy Rose, Tim Pontius and Jason Banton.

Here are some other notes:

* * *

— Monday was a big day around the league. The Portland Timbers signed 28-year-old Scottish forward Kris Boyd as a designated player. He’s the all-time leading scorer of the SPL. Also, Philadelphia has mutually parted ways with goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon, so he can end his career in his home country of Colombia. In another loss, the Union will reportedly ship to former Sounder Sebastien Le Toux to Vancouver sometime this week. Lastly, New York officially acquired the rights to former Chicago defender Wilman Conde.
