The team has several central defenders: Michael Parkhurst, acquired in a trade with Columbus, Miles Robinson, selected with the No. 2 pick in the first round of the SuperDraft, Leandro Pirez, bought from Estudiantes in Argentina, and Anton Walkes, who is on loan from Tottenham in England. Jeff Larentowicz, signed as a free agent, can also play centerhalf.
