Trade, Trialists, and Camp Roster

The Rapids made a trade late today, sending an international roster spot and our 2nd round pick in the 2014 draft to Vancouver for allocation money. I'm guessing the signing of Castrillon is imminent. The Rapids now have 3 open international spots and 3 filled ones.

Colorado also invited two players from their open tryouts earlier this week into training camp with the team. Central defender Issac Cowles played at Faith Christian High here in Denver before playing at North Carolina for 4 years. Forward Sam Archer played with RBNY's U-18 team before going to college at Rutgers.

With those two trialists we have a pretty good idea of who's going to be in camp when it starts on Monday. Here's the list so far, and as I have in past years I'll keep updating it as statuses change. Unless otherwise noted I believe everyone on the list is under contract.
