Chivas USA Announces Signings of Josue Soto and Emilio Orozco

The roster is growing ever more compliant, with two more additions. - Glyconerd

Two more players are officially on board, and they are young midfielders.

Day by day, we are getting further news about Chivas USA's roster additions, and two more have just been announced by the club. Midfielders Josue Soto and Emilio Orozco have been signed, according to a release. The club noted they were both signed through the discovery process, but length and terms of contract were of course not disclosed.

Soto, 24, was formerly a homegrown signing by the Houston Dynamo, but he never played a competitive match for that club. Last season, he was on loan to the San Antonio Scorpions in NASL, playing regular minutes through that span and scoring a couple of goals. He played collegiately at Campbell and Southern Methodist University. He is a native of Texas, and so will not be a concern regarding international slots on the roster.

Orozco, 20, signed with Tigres UANL in 2010, but never cracked the first team (perhaps unsurprising considering the depth of that club). A California native, he spent last year on loan with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers of the NASL, playing a fair number of minutes in the process. Given Dennis Te Kloese's former relationship with both Chivas USA and Tigres, it is not surprising that some of the players who couldn't break through in Mexico are getting another shot in MLS, especially the American players.

Although it is still difficult to say how Soto and Orozco will fit in Chelís' gameday plans, I would think both players are probably depth at this point. Still, we'll get a better sense starting Saturday. Welcome aboard, Josue and Emilio!
