The Seattle Sounders touched down in Arizona on Sunday for two weeks of intensive training in the desert. Before leaving, though, the team made a few roster moves, paring down the nearly 40 players in camp in the first of what will likely be many cuts before the season begins.
The players no longer training with the team were announced in the Sounders’ weekly media release on Monday.
SuperDraft choice Alex Caskey, supplemental pick Sean Morris and invitees Edouard Kabamba, Cole Peverley and Jesus Gonzalez are no longer training with the club.
The Sounders have 30 roster spots to work with in 2011, detailed by Sounder At Heart’s Dave Clark last week. The slots are broken up into three categories: senior, league minimum players and players under the age of 25 signed at league minimum. For an idea of who fits where, and how the roster may take shape, check out Clark’s post on the roster as currently constructed.
