[AMERICANS ABROAD] After his twin brother Michael, whom Philadelphia sold to Cruz Azul, Gabriel Farfan is headed to Mexico. Chivas USA sent him to Chiapas on a six-month loan with an option to purchase.

The 25-year-old Farfan was acquired from the Union in May 2013. He made 10 starts in 14 appearances after coming over to the Goats. He played played 65 games for the Union after arriving from Club America, where he played for its reserve team. Like his brother, Farfan had begun his career in college at Cal State Fullerton. (Michael moved on to North Carolina before turning pro.)

Chiapas is the former San Luis team that filled the void after Jaguares, the old Chiapas team, moved to Queretaro when Queretaro was relegated after the 2012-13 season.

Michael Farfan has yet to play since moving to Cruz Azul. Jose Villarreal, the second American who joined the Maquina, is playing for Cruz Azul's sub-20 team. Mexican Rafael Baca, the third MLS player to move to Cruz Azul, has yet to play for the first team in the Liga MX but he has suited up for three games.
