Earlier today, the Dynamo announced that they acquired Servando Carrasco along with a 2014 second round pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft for Adam Moffat.
Carrasco is a 25-year old midfielder who started 13 games for the Seattle Sounders this season. Carrasco recorded just one goal and one assist in his 19 total games. Head Coach, Dominic Kinnear, likes what Carrasco can bring to the table;
“Servando is a smart player who’s versatile and good on the ball. We also think he is a good player in MLS who can really help us endure a busy schedule. With the games we’ve seen him play for Seattle, he can play central or he can play wide. This is a difficult move because we know how popular Adam is, not only with the fans, but also with the coaching staff.”
The Dynamo chose to send Adam Moffat over to the Sounders. Moffat has been a key player for the Dynamo the last two seasons, helping them reach consecutive MLS Cup finals. Moffat has recorded three goals and one assist this season with the Dynamo, and the 27-year old will be missed both on and off the field as he was one of the fan favorites. Here are some reactions from Dynamo fans on my twitter timeline.
Sad day….Adam Moffit was trade. My favorite Dynamo player…. I will miss his Scottish beard

With just seven regular season games left in the season, the Dynamo are currently on the outside of the playoffs. Both the Dynamo (6) and the Revolution (5) have 37 points, and the Fire are right behind with 36. Carrasco should be available for Saturday’s game against the Union, and the Dynamo hope he can help offset the loss of Moffat.
