Ruiz to Remain in LA in Preparation for Preseason Training

Recently acquired LA Galaxy forward Carlos Ruiz will remain in Los Angeles to prepare for the club’s preseason training and to continue to rehabilitate his right knee which underwent successful arthroscopic surgery in November to clean up his lateral meniscus. Therefore Ruiz, who was acquired by the Galaxy on January 15, was not part of Guatemalan National Team head coach Hernán Darío Gómez’s 35-man roster which reported for training camp on Monday in Guatemala.

Ruiz initially began to feel discomfort in his right knee in September while with his former team, FC Dallas, following a U.S. Open Cup Semifinal win in Seattle. An MRI after that game revealed loose fragments in his knee, but no extensive damage. The 28-year old missed one game as a result of the injury but did not miss any more time for the rest of the regular season and postseason as a result of it.

This is the slowest source of information for the Galaxy. Between this and the even slower webcite it will be well into the season to find out anything about this team.

Will it kill you guys to put this kind of tid bits out every day?

Try and learn from the Wasington Post's "soccer insider". You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

El Pescadito will be flopping for the Galaxy before we know it! I'm excited.

That's good to here. We can't continue having nothing but injured players.
