MOST COMMENTED

[MLS TRANSACTIONS] Argentine forward Maximiliano Urruti lasted less than a month at Toronto FC as he was traded to the Portland Timbers in exchange for forward Bright Dike, a first-round pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft and allocation money.

Urruti, 22, was acquired by Toronto FC on Aug. 16 from Argentine club Newell’s Old Boys, where he made 56 appearances and scored 12 goals in the Primera Division and also made six appearances in Copa Libertadores play.

He just made two appearance for TFC, which is out of the playoff race -- again -- the Eastern Conference.

The Timbers have slipped to fifth in the Western Conference, going 4-4-2 in their last 10 games after losing just once in their first 17 games.

“Maximiliano is a player we know well, one we feel will be a great fit in our system and scouted extensively prior to him signing with Toronto,” said Timbers coach Caleb Porter. “He is a quality, young player who has cut his teeth with one of the top clubs in the Argentine first division. Urruti will complement the depth we have in the striker position, and once he is acclimated and match fit, will bring a dimension to the number nine role that we’ve been looking for.”

Friday marks the day when all teams will lock in their rosters for the remainder of the season.
