Trialist In And Out

Just a quick roster update.  Pery Martinez did not come back to Colorado with the team, but Colombian forward David Giraldo has joined the team in Commerce City.

Updated camp roster:

Steward Ceus
Matt Pickens
Clint Irwin - Unsigned trialist
Jim Mauer - Unsigned trialist

Diego Calderon - International
Marcello Castro - Unsigned drafteeInternational
Brenton Griffiths - Unsigned draftee, International
Kory Kindle - Unsigned draftee
Chris Klute (Atlanta loan through late-Sept)
Drew Moor
Anthony Wallace
Marvell Wynne

Davy Armstrong - Homegrown Player
Tony Cascio
Jaime Castrillon - International
Machael David - Unsigned draftee
Kevin Harbottle - International
Nick LaBrocca
Pablo Mastroeni
Brian Mullan
Shane O'Neill - Homegrown Player
Dillon Powers
Martin Rivero (Rosario Central loan through 2013) - International
Dillon Serna - Homegrown Player
Nathan Sturgis
Hendry Thomas - International
Jamie Smith - Unsigned trialist

Andre Akpan
Deshorn Brown - Generation Adidas, International
Edson Buddle
Charles Eloundou - International
Atiba Harris
Kamani Hill
Stefano Souza Pinho - Unsigned drafteeInternational
David Giraldo -  Unsigned trialist, International
Cesar Romero - Unsigned trialist

That leaves 10 international players in camp, 6 already signed to a deal. The remaining 3 are our Supplemental Draft picks Castro, Griffiths, and Pinho and newcomer Giraldo.

Laying out the position battle:
(in camp/signed)
GK: 4/2
DF: 8/5
MF: 15/13
FW: 8/6

36 total for 30 spots, 26 already signed. Assuming a 3rd GK that leaves 32 field players battling for 27 spots, with 24 already signed. Barring cuts/trades Kindle, Smith, Castro, Griffiths, David, Romero, Giraldo, and Pinho are battling for 3 spots (two of which could be internationals). Based on play in AZ and rumors, I think Kindle and Smith have the inside line on two of the open non-GK spots.
