Obafemi Martins become the seventh designated player in Sounders FC history

I’ve updated this information quite a bit this year, first with Fredy Montero‘s exit, then Shalrie Joseph‘s addition, then with Christian Tiffert‘s departure.

But here’s the latest look at Sounders FC’s DP history.

*     *     *

Freddie Ljungberg (signed on Oct. 28, 2008 … traded to Chicago on July 30, 2010)
Blaise Nkufo (signed March 4, 2010 … arrived July 17, 2010 … bought out Mar. 15, 2011)
Alvaro Fernandez (signed July 29, 2010 … traded to Chicago on July 27, 2012)
Fredy Montero (re-signed as DP on Dec. 1, 2010 … loan to Millonarios on Jan. 21, 2013)
Christian Tiffert (signed on July 27, 2012 … bought out Mar. 2, 2013)
*Mauro Rosales (re-signed on Dec. 13, 2011 … classified as DP before 2012 season … current)
*Shalrie Joseph (acquired on Feb. 19, 2013 … current)
*Obafemi Martins (signed on March 15, 2013 … current)

And once again, player production specifically as a DP:
