Update: Consider this post updated again following the signing of Michael Azira. The Sounders now have 27 of 30 roster spots filled.

This post has been adjusted to include Thursday morning’s signing of fourth-round draft pick Fabio Pereira.

Sounders FC moved a step closer to settling on an opening-day lineup with Wednesday’s signing of midfielder Gonzalo Pineda.

It looks like the Sounders have five of seven international slots filled, as well, with Pineda, Obafemi Martins, Djimi Traore, Marco Pappa and Damion Lowe (remember one was traded to Montreal in the Lamar Neagle deal).
