Maykel Galindo and Charlie Campbell let go by FCD

By Buzz Carrick

As I wrote a few days ago, the odds were starting to get a little long for Charlie Campbell and with Maykel Galindo not lighting it up in camp the Fabian Castillo signing was going to be trouble for him.

And so it goes, as FCD today parted with both Campbell and Galindo, the team announced via twitter. While unannounced, trialists Kevin Gall and Cristian Arrieta both did not return to Dallas with the team.

While FCD has not finalized their roster and won't till next week, it's starting to look like Scott Gordon may grab that last roster spot.

Thus here's the roster dance as it sits today.

Last updated: 3/10/11
