. MLS: MetroStars activate Balboa; call up Cassar

Marcelo Balboa, who joined the MetroStars from Colorado in the past offseason but has yet to see action because of a knee injury, has been taken off injured reserve and will suit up for Saturday's regular-season finale against New England.

The MetroStars also called up goalkeeper Jeff Cassar from the A-League's Atlanta Silverbacks. Cassar, an MLS veteran, will serve as a backup to Paul Grafer, who is replacing suspeded Tom Howard. Howard was red-carded for a foul on Roy Lassiter during the MetroStars' 2-1 loss to D.C. United last Saturday.
