Lamar Neagle, Servando Carrasco Sign With Seattle Sounders

Lamar Neagle is back with the Sounders, this time under contract for the 2011 season. Neagle, a native of the area, has had an off-and-on relationship with the Sounders, joining the team in 2009, missing out on the roster in 2010 and, finally, returning to the team this season. Neagle has impressed in camp thus far, and should slide in as a reserve at forward for the Sounders.

The team also announced Servado Carrasco, a second-round draft pick out of California, has signed a contract with the team. Carrasco is expected to be another depth addition, backing up Osvaldo Alonso in the midfield while playing in non-MLS competitions. Like Neagle, he's impressed in camp, securing his place on the roster.

The Sounders are back in Seattle this week, training at Starfire Athletic Complex ahead of this weekend's Cascadia Summit. Next week, the Sounders host the Colorado Rapids at Qwest Field in the Community Shield match before kicking off MLS play on Thursday, March 17.
