Garza, 26, was on loan with Atlanta United last season during which he appeared in 26 games, including 25 starts. He scored two goals and had five assists and led the league’s fullbacks in chances created. The team signed him permanently in the offseason.
Martino said there are several players who can fill in at left fullback or wingback, depending upon the formation, including Chris McCann, Mikey Ambrose, Jose Hernandez and George Bello.
McCann and Ambrose have started at the positions this season. Hernandez only recently returned to action with Atlanta United 2 after suffering a hamstring injury during the preseason. Bello, 16 and a resident of Douglasville, is Homegrown signing who has yet to appear for the team.
