Rapids Trade For McBean

Today the Rapids traded their 4th round pick in the 2019 draft to LA for forward  Jack McBean.  He was originally signed by LA in 2011 as a homegrown player at age 16.  He's averaged 5 appearances a season for the Galaxy during his career there and the last 4 years made himself a regular starter and scorer for LA Galaxy II in the USL.

Much like Colvey yesterday McBean is brought in for depth and the possibility that he'll improve into a regular MLS-caliber player.  I expect to see him in USOC play and a possible inclusion in the gameday 18 due to injury.  I'd be surprised if he got any league starts this season, at least not before we clinch or are eliminated from the playoffs.
