The Vancouver game Saturday marked his first non-start of the season, as he played 18 minutes off the bench. But coach Sigi Schmid said plenty of minutes and opportunities remain available.
“He’s a player who can still play up top for us some,” Schmid said. “Wide right is probably his next best position. … The minutes are there for him because there are still a ton of games: We’ve got the midweek games, we’ve got the Open Cup coming up. For him to continue to perform as he did early in the season is just a reflection of minutes and him continuing to make good decisions when he’s on the field.”
