5. MLS: Red Bulls send keeper Rimando back to Real Salt Lake

Before playing a game for the New York Red Bulls, goalkeeper Nick Rimando was traded to Real Salt Lake in exchange for future considerations.

Rimando, who had played two seasons with the Miami Fusions and five with D.C. United, came to the Red Bulls by way of Salt Lake, which needed him back after keeper Scott Garlick announced his retirement. (Rimando initial arrival at Salt Lake was part of the Freddy Adu trade.)

Rimando was acquired by the Red Bulls from Real Salt Lake on Feb. 9. But New York had also signed former Dutch international keeper Ronald Waterreus.

FC Dallas re-signed 22-year-old Ecuadorian forward Roberto Mina. Mina, who joined Dallas in 2005, played in each of FC Dallas' first 16 games of 2006 season before suffering a knee injury. He has 10 goals and five assists in 37 regular season games (24 starts).
