HOW ACQUIRED: Acquired via trade with Sporting Kansas City on Dec. 18, 2018.
A young striker who has spent time with the Chilean national team, Rubio turned into one of the most efficient finishers in MLS after returning from injury in 2018. He'll be looking to form a potentially lethal strike partnership with veteran Kei Kamara for the Rapids in 2019.
INTERNATIONAL: The Chilean international has four senior team caps, the most recent one coming this past September 2018 as he started in La Roja’s friendly against South Korea.
OUTSIDE MLS: Rubio has recorded 37 goals and 15 assists during a five-year professional career in South America and Europe. The forward joins Sporting Kansas City from Real Valladolid of the Spanish Segunda Division, where he made 14 appearances during the 2015-16 season.
