DP Announcement and Transactions

Midfield Maestro Returns to Alamo City

Yes he's injured.  Yes it will be months before he plays this season.  No, neither of those things matter.  When thinking season-long and trying to put together a roster for the long haul, using the DP slot on Mauro Diaz makes sense.  He can occupy the IR slot on the team sheet.  Add that into consideration with the fact that it is free to slap the DP tag on him if nothing more than to retain his rights and the decision becomes even easier.  "Obviously this isn't just about retaining his rights," stated the ACSC  FO.  "We honestly feel that he'll be back this summer and will be able to contribute this season.  He's one of the best players in the league and he's an Alamo City player.  We're going to do everything we can to ensure it stays that way."

Naming Diaz as the club's 2nd DP wasn't the only move Alamo City made.  The club swapped 1st round picks with Spartans in order to nab the first overall pick in the draft.  In order to do so the club also traded their 2nd round pick to Spartans in exchange for Spartans' 4th round pick as well as selling cult hero Tommy McNamara to Spartans for 15$ in ACQ funds.  Heading into the draft Alamo City has four roster slots filled:  

Giovani Dos Santos
Jack Harrison
