MLS: D.C. makes another deal, picks up 'Sneaky' Pete
D.C. United continued its busy day when it picked up former Tampa Bay forward Pete Marino and waived forward Michael Burke to create the roster spot. Earlier in the day, United traded midfielder John Maessner and three draft picks to Tampa Bay for former United forward Raul Diaz Arce.
Marino reported to United Park on Monday for training before formally signing a contract this afternoon. He spent time training in Germany, with Fortuna Cologne, and Italy after being released by Tampa Bay on March 1. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Marino, nicknamed "Sneaky" Pete for his creative ability up front, scored 21 goals and had eight assists in 83 regular season games while playing for Columbus, Kansas City and the Mutiny. He had just one assist in eight career playoff games.
Burke appeared in seven of United's 12 matches, starting four. Burke was scoreless in 290 minutes of action and took five shots.
