The New England Revolution traded midfielder Kelyn Rowe to the Colorado Rapids on Tuesday in exchange for veteran left back Edgar Castillo.
The move represents a shakeup for the Revs. Rowe had spent the last seven seasons in New England and scored 29 goals and added 40 assists while playing a variety of positions.
“On behalf of the organization, I want to thank Kelyn for the past seven years he has spent representing the New England Revolution with professionalism on and off the field,” Revolution General Manager Mike Burns said in a statement released by the team. “Beyond his numerous contributions on the field, he will always be remembered by the club and the fans for his work in the community. We wish Kelyn all the best.”
Colorado later sent Rowe to Kansas City in a separate deal.
The 32-year-old Castillo has played the majority of his 12-year professional career in Mexico and spent last year with Colorado. He has seen time with both the U.S. and Mexican national teams.
“We are excited to welcome Edgar to the Revolution and look forward to having him join us in New England ahead of preseason next month,” Burns said. “We believe his experience at both the domestic and international levels, including his successful first season in MLS with the Rapids last year, will immediately benefit us this season.”
