HOW ACQUIRED: Transferred from Stuttgart and signed Young Designated Player contract on January 23, 2016.

After impressing in his debut MLS season, the 21-year-old Gruezo heads into 2016 as the undisputed starter alongside Kellyn Acosta in the 2016. He is a technically skilled holding midfielder who can keep the ball circulating in the middle of the park, but can also dish it out on the defensive side of the ball.

OUTSIDE MLS: Gruezo joined Bundesliga side VfB Stuttgart from Ecuadorian outfit Barcelona SC in 2014, signing a four-year contract with the German club. In the fall of 2014, Gruezo scored his first goal for Stuttgart in a 4-1 victory over Freiburg, becoming the first player from Ecuador to score in the Bundesliga.

INTERNATIONAL: Made his debut for Ecuador’s senior national team as a second-half substitute versus the Netherlands on May 17, 2014. A few weeks later, he was named to Ecuador’s 2014 FIFA World Cup squad. He has earned 17 caps for Ecuador heading into 2017.
