New Players to MLS

Ives Galarcep reported today that MLS has signed 3 new players to contracts. The three players are from Colombia, all are central defenders, and all are 22 or younger. According to Galarcep, all 3 players have already had discovery claims put in on them, including by the expansion Philadelphia Union. The 3 players are Edward Zea, Pablo Escobar, and Hanyer Mosquera.

The question is whether the Wizards have filed discovery claims and whether they'll get any of those 3 players. Currently the Wizards are the only team in MLS to not have some kind of roster move already this offseason. This in an offseason where we would told when Peter Vermes had the interim tag removed that we'd see a roster overhaul. I'm not saying to make a move just for the sake of making one, but if we're having a real roster overhaul I would have expected at least a move or two to have already taken place. If these three players can be more like Fredy Montero and Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and less like Ivan Trujillo, than hopefully the Wizards got a discovery claim in and can bring one of these players in.
