|St. Ledger Sean||124,992.00||147,492.00|
The first number is the base salary, the second is the 2015 guaranteed compensation. The salary cap number is usually somewhere in between. The two new names are Figueroa at $100K, which is a steal, and St. Ledger at $147,500 which is no surprise since we picked up his OCSC contract.
Also in the last few days a number of Rapids have been called up for their National Teams
Dillon Serna will be part of the U.S. U-23 Olympic Qualifying squad. He may not be available in Houston on Saturday I'm not sure, but after that he'll miss everything through at least the FSL game on October 4th and most likely through the home finale on Oct 10th. So likely the last time to see Serna at home this season is when the 3rd group game of the qualifying tournament is played at the Dick on Oct. 6th.
Kevin Doyle is on the provisional list of 40 players for Ireland's Euro qualifiers in October. The team is scheduled to gather in Ireland on October 4th. Hopefully if Doyle is on the final roaster he, Irish manager Martin O'Neill, and the Rapids can work something out where Doyle can stay through the critical Rocky Mountain Cup match on the 4th and them immediately fly to Ireland to join the team. If called Doyle would then rejoin the team for the final two road games in KC and Portland.
Gabriel Torres has been called up for Panama's friendlies against Trinidad & Tobaga and Mexico next month. Again we'll have to see when the team gets together but their first game is October 8th so once again hopefully he can stay through the rivalry match on the 4th. He'll also rejoin the team for the final two matches of the season.
